As the name suggests, special modifiers are combined with standard roofing asphalt during a controlled refinement process where bitumen is then reinforced with fiberglass or polyester fiber to form sheets that provide superior strength and durability. Certified Gen 3 Roofing Corp. roofing experts offer two types of modified bitumen roofing materials:
SBS (Styrene Butadiene Styrene)
Installed with hot mopping of a cold adhesive onto asphalt, this type of modified bitumen roofing can be further reinforced with an adhesive backing that provides a rubber type finish.
APP Atactic Polypropylene
Classified as a torch on roofing technique, APP modified bitumen is comprised of a thermoplastic polymer that is installed with heat applied applications (torch on or heat welded) that result in a smooth plasticized finish.
Available in rolls or sheets, modified bitumen roofing material is specifically manufactured to provide uniform thickness and state of the art components that are spread evenly throughout the material and carefully layered over the roof membrane. As esthetically appealing as they are practical, Gen 3 Roofing Corp. offers modified bitumen roofing systems in several granular color surfaces that offer excellent UV protection.
Our licensed and experienced roofing technicians combine one or more layers with additional built up roofing materials and techniques that result in flawlessly customized installations tailored specifically to the structural requirements of your commercial property.
