Baton Rouge Modified Bitumen Roofs:  Benefits for Commercial BuildingsEveryone has a built-in menu inside of their head.  This menu contains things we are familiar with, things we enjoy and things we have been trained to recognize.  Inside each category, we really only have room to recall 2 or 3, maybe 4 different things.  For example, think of a fast food restaurant.  You probably remembered McDonald’s, Burger King, Taco Bell.  Now think of a chicken restaurant.  Now you probably have three more answers, Cane’s, KFC, Popeye’s.  The same is true for parts of our home.  Name 3 types of roofs.  Shingle, metal, tile.  What about modified bitumen.  This can be a very beneficial option for your Baton Rouge home or business, here’s why.

Modified bitumen roofs are ideal for flat, or nealy flat roofs.  This is an evolution of asphalt roofing where the seams are heated to melt and seal the asphalt together.  This type of roof is considered a membrane roof and prevents leaks and moves water from the roof surface.  The benefits of modified bitumen roofing include:

  • Durability
  • Weather resistance
  • Simple repair
  • Flexibility

So when it’s time to build, expand or remodel your commercial building, there are a few more options for your roof than the 2 or 3 that immediately come to mind.  For over 50 years, Cribbs Incorporated has been building and caring for Baton Rouge businesses.  For more information, click here.
