Modified Bitumen – The Affordable Solution for Low-Slope Roofing
Modified bitumen (Mod-bit) is an inexpensive alternative to thermoplastic olefin (TPO). Although Mod-bit doesn’t quite match the insulation capacity of flat-lying TPO, any experienced residential roofer knows when to use it.
What is Modified Bitumen?
Modified bitumen roofing systems are a lot like the old rolled roofing products used in the past, but their composition and design are much more advanced. In fact, it’s actually made from asphalt, rubber and a collection of specially-formulated solvents. In most cases, Mod-bit is rolled out in sheets that are then heat-sealed together. While TPO is becoming the preferred membrane for flat building surfaces, Mod-bit is a great option for low-slope roofs on residential structures. It’s easy to repair and quick to install. More importantly, the durable seal repels any water and provides excellent insulation during hot summer weather.
