When it comes to commercial or industrial flat roofing in Orlando Florida there are two main options most business owners consider. A modified bitumen roof or some type of single ply TPO roofing system. We will discuss the pros and cons of both roofing systems.
Modified Bitumen For Low Sloped Roofs
An SBS modified bitumen roof is arguably one of the most common flat roofing systems seen installed by roofing contractors all over the US. It has a rubbery like characteristic and resists weathering and aging rather well. SBS sheets can be applied with a torch, hot mopping with asphalt, or cold applied with adhesives. SBS-modified bitumen sheets come in rolls shipped from a factory with small ceramic granules that have reflective properties and protection from ultraviolet rays.
Once installed, most modified bitumen systems will come with a twenty year warranty. These flat roofing systems do require very detailed installation practices along with some metal roofing work.
