Modified asphalt and multiple plies rank these as the longest lasting low-slope systems
Long-lasting modified asphalt
Modified asphalt roofing systems, also known as modified bitumen, have gained popularity over the last several decades because they can be installed with cold adhesives and torching to create a water-tight seal.
While on the higher end of the cost scale, the application of asphalt and use of multiple plies rank these as the longest lasting low-slope systems.
Stronger components extend roof life
Plastic polymers such as atactic polypropylene (APP) promote stability and resist tears, and rubber additives such as styrene-butadiene styrene (SBS) promote elasticity.
The industry has moved away from traditional 3- and 4-ply roofing systems utilizing hot asphalt or coal tar pitch due to safety and health concerns. Today’s cold and hot applied modified asphalt systems are safer to install, help move water off the roof, and help prevent leaks.
Single-ply systems possess the greatest market share among low-slope roofing systems
Single-ply roofing is more popular than ever
Starting with the widespread growth of rubber (EPDM) in the 1980s, popular single-ply systems now include heat-weldable plastics (PVC and TPO) and currently possess the greatest market share among low-slope roof systems.
These single-ply systems are usually installed with adhesives, but can also be mechanically fastened and ballasted.
- Promotes a long-lasting, water-tight seal
- Increases stability and strength
- Reduces potential maintenance issues
- Improves lifespan of the roof
Install coatings over your current system to add 20 additional warranted years
Reduce costs + increase warranted years
Elastomeric and reflective coatings are an excellent choice for extending the life of your current roof system. The addition of reflectivity reduces cooling costs and UV degradation, and a wide range of chemistries can be installed over your current system to add as many as 20 additional warranted years.
Types of coatings:
- Asphaltic tar
- Coal tar
