For some flat or low-slope roofs, self-adhered modified (also called modified bituminous) roofing may be the best choice. This material is more durable than EPDM rubber but also has a more difficult installation process. The experts at Community Roofing and Restoration have experience with all types of commercial roofing materials, and can point you in the right direction for your unique scenario. For self-adhered modified roofing installation in Milwaukee and the surrounding areas, look no further than Community Roofing and Restoration.
Self-adhered modified roofing is a combination of asphalt with polypropylene, styrene, rubber or other agents to create a uniform matrix, enhancing the waterproofing properties of the asphalt. This gives the roof a durable and weather resistant covering with a long life span. Although repairs to self-adhered modified roofs are more difficult than EPDM rubber roofs, they are also much less commonly required, because of self-adhered modified roofing’s increased durability.
Different roofs require different solutions. Self-adhered modified roofing is often appropriate for roofs where contact with tree branches is a concern, or where frequent foot traffic is necessary. Self-adhered modified roofing’s unique composition is more resilient and holds up better to frequent abuse than EPDM.
