As roofing systems provide a layer of protection for securing your Southern California or surrounding commercial or industrial building from the elements, for your building to be functional, it requires an effective roof as this component is primarily responsible for protecting the building, occupants and property there-in from harsh weather conditions, including extreme humidity, rainstorms and wind damage.
As a property owner or manager of a California building, you have a broad range of roofing materials available on the market to choose from — and one of them is the modified bitumen roofing, an asphalt-based roofing solution for flat and low-sloped structures.
TOP ADVANTAGES OF BUILT-UP / MODIFIED BITUMEN ROOFING FOR YOUR CALIFORNIA COMMERCIAL PROPERTY
If you are looking to cut your energy expenses, the outermost layer of modified bitumen roofs can be treated to produce a “cool roofing” quality, increasing the solar reflectance and thermal emission features of your property. This means that your roof will have the ability to reflect sunlight and release excess heat, significantly reducing the cooling demands of your building and, therefore, reducing your utility expenses.
Pliable, Expandable Material
A pliable, flexible roofing material is critical for impact resistance as well as for withstanding temperature changes. Since modified bitumen can expand and contract without losing its original shape or cracking, it is an ideal roofing option for many different types of commercial roofs.
Modified bitumen is the modernized version of built-up roofing, a traditional roofing material also known as tar-and-gravel roofing. The main advantage of modified bitumen is that it offers outstanding tear resistance to roofing systems, thanks in part to its robust mixture of fiberglass and polyester reinforcement layers. This unique quality is especially beneficial to commercial buildings with high foot traffic on rooftops, such as bars and hotels.
Many commercial roofing companies recommend modified bitumen roofing systems as they are essentially waterproof. To note, with proper installation of several layers of this material on your roofing structure by a licensed, trusted roofing company, it is often considered one the most efficient waterproofing solutions you can choose for your commercial property.
PRO TIP: When you are looking for a roofing company for your project, take a close look at their experience and at the projects they have worked on. Do they have experience with the type of project you have? Also, what is their safety record? Taking a closer look can help you select the most reputable commercial roofing company for your project and save you unnecessary headaches during the process.
