WHAT IS SELF-ADHERED MODIFIED ROOFING?

Self-adhered modified roofing systems are designed to protect low-slope roofs using adhesive membranes that are easy to install, yet do the job for decades. These roofs combine asphalt and other rubber compounds to yield a unique and durable roofing system that’s typically applied in multiple layers.

WHAT ARE KEY ADVANTAGES OF SELF-ADHERED MODIFIED ROOFING?

  • Environmentally friendly as the materials do not contain volatile organic compounds
  • No pungent fumes, torches, hot mopping or solvent adhesive systems accompany the installation
  • Simple process reduces installation time and saves on upfront labor costs
  • Self-adhered modified roofing is a time-tested technology, and years of building science research and development has improved formulations to improve durability and bond strength
  • Self-adhered modified roofing comes in a variety of colors and thicknesses, you can also layer membranes for enhanced waterproofing
  • Material manufacturers often include warranties with an installation
  • The cap sheet, or top layer, is highly reflective and can help improve energy efficiency
  • The materials are also fire resistant

INSTALLATION METHODS

Self-adhered modified roof systems are typically installed in two or three layers, which reduces leak risk as compared to a single-layer installation. The first layer, a nail base or ply layer, is adhered to the structure. Then, (in a 2-ply system) a cap sheet is installed, which is a mix of materials that offer reflectivity, fire resistance and leak protection. In a 3-ply system, a middle layer is added for further leak protection.
