Modified Bitumen Rubber Roofing Systems are applied with a hand-held torch. On larger jobs, a "dragon wagon" is used. This is a 3-foot-wide machine pulled by one technician. Modified rubber is similar to single ply, as they both consist of one layer of waterproofing. All drains, metal, and flashing get an extra layer of modified rubber. This is what we call "sandwiching the metal" in the Roofing Industry.
The application of a Modified Bitumen Roof is more convenient than that of the BUR systems, since a kettle and hot asphalt are not needed. The pricing will be similar to the higher-end BUR systems.
I was very happy with Midwest Roofing's work. We had scheduled a different company, but when the season got busy they stopped returning our calls. This never happened with Midwest. They maintain good communication, and all of our calls were returned promptly. They were extremely competitive on the pricing. Mark was the supervisor, and he handled everything perfectly . . .
