Modified bitumen flat roofing systems are very durable, weather resistant and easy to repair. There are two main types of modified bitumen: SBS (styrene-butadiene-styrene) and APP (attactic polypropylene). SBS is typically applied using hot asphalt or the using a cold adhesive while APP is installed using a heat welded or torch applied application

This type of flat roof membrane is made from different types of modifiers and solvents which give it its flexible, rubberized asphalt qualities. Typically modified bitumen roofing systems have multiple layers and are installed as a two ply system using a heat application process. When the product is heated with a torch it melts and allows the asphalt to bond at the seams creating a powerful waterproof seal which is not prone to leaks.

EPDM is a synthetic rubber membrane used to keep water from penetrating your flat roof. This material is excellent quality and recently has dropped in price making it accessible to more homeowners and no longer only reserved for large scale commercial projects.
Using rolls of EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer) can cut labor costs as much as 70% thanks to the factory applied tape which makes the process of seaming much simpler. This helps pass the savings on to you (the client). Best of all, EPDM expected to last upwards of 50 years making it much more durable and long-lasting than its tar and gravel counterpart.
TPO also known as thermoplastic polyolefin is another high quality rubber membrane used for sealing flat roofs. This product is generally seen as a ‘green’ eco-friendly roofing product. In testing conditions the connecting seams of TPO membrane were found to be 3-4 times stronger than EPDM; although they are both very high quality sealing membranes.
This product can be ballasted, fully adhered, or mechanically attached. Each method of installation has its uses depending on the project in question. TPO generally has a life of 15-20 years when installed correctly.
