While traditional angled roofs have many varied options in roofing solutions, depending on weather and demands, flat-top roofs are a different matter. There are relatively few options on the market for properly covering flat roofs, particularly because they have extra demands. The lack of angling means they must be able to withstand some level of standing water or snow, sometimes for long periods.
Of the options available, modified bitumen roofing is generally considered to be the best available in most cases. But to achieve lasting durability from modified bitumen roofing, property owners must review protective systems such as elastomeric coatings. Let’s look at the benefits of using elastomeric coatings on modified bitumen roofing.
