The Modified Bitumen Flat Roofing system has been a staple of the commercial roofing industry in Canada for over 40 years. Originally developed in Europe in the 1960’s, North American manufacturers quickly developed their own Modified Bitumen membranes. The top choice of roofing contractors and building owners for decades, Modified Bitumen is an asphalt-based, fiberglass infused membrane designed for low slope applications.
AllPro Roofing is committed to using the highest quality products to ensure the highest quality work. For our traditional torch down applications, we choose to work with products by Bakor, from the Henry Company.
Modified Bitumen boasts a high tensile strength compared to other roof systems, making it unlikely to crack in freezing temperatures. Durable enough to stand up to the most extreme Canadian weather, a Modified Bitumen roof is also fire-resistant. This cost effective roofing system provides reliable waterproofing and protection from the elements, without having to meet the strict weather requirements that can delay the installation of other Flat Roofing systems. Bakor Modified Bitumen can also be installed with high solar reflectivity, to reduce your energy costs while remaining eco-friendly.

Adhering to a variety of substrates, and designed with the same weather stopping power as traditional Mod-Bit membranes, the new and improved ADESO Self-Adhering Membrane makes for faster and safer installation than the traditional torch down method.
