Modified Bitumen roofing, a staple in the commercial roofing industry since the 1970s, offers robust protection tailored for buildings in demanding environments like SW Florida and the Pensacola region. This asphalt-based solution combines the reliability of traditional roofing methods with advanced polymer modification, making it highly resistant to thermal cracking and weather extremes. Its layers are reinforced with fiberglass or polyester, enhancing both durability and tear resistance. With these qualities, Modified Bitumen roofing stands as a cost-effective and reliable option for businesses dedicated to long-term infrastructure resilience.

Advantages of Modified Bitumen Roofing Systems


Modified Bitumen roofs are known for their long-lasting durability. Reinforced with multiple layers of bitumen and synthetic materials, they are highly resistant to weathering, impact, and wear and tear, ensuring a long lifespan.


The flexibility of Modified Bitumen makes it an ideal choice for buildings that experience structural movement. It maintains its integrity in various weather conditions, accommodating thermal expansion and contraction without cracking.

Ease of Installation

Modified Bitumen can be installed using various methods, including heat welding, cold adhesives, or self-adhesive sheets. This versatility allows for efficient installation processes, minimizing disruption to your business operations.


With superior waterproofing properties, Modified Bitumen roofs provide robust protection against leaks and moisture infiltration. This makes them especially suitable for low-slope and flat roofing applications where water pooling is a concern.

UV Resistance

The addition of reflective coatings or granulated surfaces enhances the UV resistance of Modified Bitumen roofs. This helps to prevent degradation from prolonged sun exposure, reducing cooling costs and extending the roof's lifespan.

Energy Efficiency

When combined with reflective coatings, Modified Bitumen roofs can contribute to energy savings by reflecting sunlight and reducing heat absorption. This helps maintain cooler building interiors and lowers energy expenses.

Fire Resistance

Engineered with fire-resistant materials, Modified Bitumen roofs offer excellent fire protection. They meet stringent fire safety standards, ensuring that your property is safeguarded against potential fire hazards.

Low Maintenance

The robust construction and resistance to environmental factors mean that Modified Bitumen roofs typically require minimal maintenance. This results in fewer repairs and lower overall maintenance costs, providing long-term value for your investment.
