Modified Bitumen Information
Modified bitumen, or mod bit as we call it, is made up of asphalt and rubber modifiers and solvents mixed together in specific amounts to form a layer which is then cut and collected in large rolls. It stands as a near-perfect balance between traditional and modern and is used throughout the US – regardless of temperature and weathering. Mod bit is unrolled on your rooftop and one of several methods is used to fasten it to your structure: seam-heated, hot-mopped, cold-applied, self-adhesive. Chicago Flat Roof Company has 15+ years of experience working with mod bit on low-slope and flat roofs throughout Chicagoland. We appreciate its ability to shed water and stand up to the fluctuations in temperature common to the region. While mod bit roofing is durable, and can be greatly reinforced by regular maintenance, the manufacturer’s only estimate the lifespan at 10 years, so owners need to be aware of that fact before making any final decisions. Again, that’s why you need a pro like Chicago Flat Roof Company. We’ll always tell you the absolute truth, so call (312) 667-4440 today.
Customers ask us all the time about the “modified” in modified bitumen. They’re curios about what’s been modified and how, and, when you think about it, who can blame them? We’d want to know, too. Luckily, we do and we’ll quote the American Roofing Manufacturer’s Association just for you:
Modified bitumens generally use a traditional waterproofing medium — asphalt — modified with atactic polypropylene (APP), styrene butadiene styrene (SBS), synthetic rubber or other agents that create a uniform matrix that enhances the physical properties of the asphalt. SBS and APP are the most common bitumen modifiers.
