Modified Bitumen Roofing

Do I Need a New Modified Bitumen Roof?

The typical modified bitumen roofing system will last about 20 years with little to no maintenance, and we recommend taking a proactive approach by replacing your existing roof as you near that point rather than waiting for the material to fail. It’s not a bad idea to have your mod-bit roof inspected on an annual basis and after any severe storm. Punctures are a concern. You should also watch for cracks, blistering, and seam defects.

The Importance of a Properly Installed Flat Roof

The typical modified bitumen roofing system will not experience issues throughout its normal lifespan. Most defects and other issues are caused by improper installation, which is why it’s imperative to have your MB roof installed by a skilled and experienced contractor. An improper slope can cause water pooling and degradation of materials. Improperly installed flashing and fasteners can undermine a roof as well, and these problems can lead to water penetration that results in blisters.
