Modified Bitumen Roof Systems are single-ply roofing systems that are usually applied to the roof surface by rolling. They are similar to asphalt roofs, but their materials contain additional polymers that provide additional insulation from the elements and help to extend the product’s lifetime. While they are the least common flat roofing method, they are still widely used and have a good reputation.

What is a Modified Bitumen Roofing System?

Modified bitumen systems are a carefully formulated mixture of asphalt and modified polyester and fiberglass solvents that provide a reinforced roofing material with either plasticized or rubber-like finishes. They are available in two types: APP (Atactic Polypropylene) and SBS (Synthetic Bitumen System) (Styrene Butadiene Styrene).

Commercial property owners in Toronto can only benefit from a strong and cost-effective modified bitumen roofing membrane reinforced with an asphalt mixture of solvents and modifiers that is applied and flawlessly sealed by accredited Universal Roofs experts.

Modified Bitumen Roof Installation

Using strengthened bars or frames, our professional technicians manually fasten the membrane to the roof deck of a low sloping or flat commercial rooftop, providing additional reinforcement against strong winds and Toronto’s most severe weather conditions. A base ply overlap is also sealed for ultimate waterproof perfection, resulting in an aesthetically pleasing granule finish that is extremely impacted and UV ray resistant.

Modified Bitumen repair

Bituminous roofing repair is provided by Universal Roof’s skilled and experienced technicians for both SBS (Styrene Butadiene Styrene) and APP (Atactic Polypropylene) roof systems. As a reputable roofing company in Toronto, we provide high-quality factory-made roofing systems backed by reputable suppliers, as well as solid warranties for both materials and labor. Consult our licensed roofing team for a licensed roof inspection and trained roof repair, which includes:

Protective Roof Coatings

 If the asphalt granules holding your modified bitumen roof system together show signs of wear and tear, the fiberglass matting can be weakened, leaving the membrane susceptible to water infiltration. Our hands-on modified Bitumen Roofing experts re-seal the membrane with specially formulated protective coatings to prevent premature roof replacement.

Errors in Bituminous Roofing Installation

 Bituminous Roofing Installation necessitates the use of certified and qualified installers. Our experts at Universal Roofs inspect fasteners, roof matting, and the overall state of finishing and each roof part to ensure that your commercial roofing system was built according to manufacturer guidelines, otherwise, your factory warranty can be voided. When built by a qualified Universal Roofs roofing specialist, a modified bitumen roof will last anywhere from 15 to 20 years with very little maintenance.

Benefits of Modified Bitumen Roofing System


Quality assurance is synonymous with adjusted bitumen rolls. To ensure uniform application, they come with a granular surface layer under a factory-applied mineral surfacing process. They have a longer lifespan and don’t wear out as quickly, lowering the roof repair costs over time.

Easy Installation

Although safety precautions must be taken when working with an open flame or torch, modified bitumen systems are less difficult to mount. As a result, you’ll save money on labor and have less downtime.

Defending Against Water Infiltration

Modified bitumen roofs are vast seamless areas that come in overlapping rolls. There are fewer seams, so there are fewer risks of leakage. You can rest assured that the joints are properly attached if you employ a Universal Roofs specialist in this roofing option.

Standing Firm in the Face of Strong Winds

Disc plating or cap nails are used to physically connect the base layer of modified bitumen materials to the sheathing. As a result, it can effectively withstand wind uplift.

Remaining Structurally Sound at Low Temperatures

Polymer-reinforced roof wear layers are used with modified bitumen systems, which work well in cold climates. They’re elastic and flexible, so they’ll remain in one piece even though it’s freezing outside.

Reducing Construction Waste

Mod-bit fabrics, including asphalt shingle roofs, lend themselves to recycling. They would not end up in landfills at the end of their useful lives. Although no roofing material is completely green, their durability and sustainability make them among the most environmentally friendly.
