SBS Modified

Styrene-Buradiene-Stryene, or SBS Modified Bitumen, is a durable asphalt-styled roof that is based on membranes that contain various modifiers and solvents. The membrane for an SBS Modified system is a polyester mat that is installed within the material itself, designed to provide reinforcement.

Why Use a SBS Modified System

SBS Modified commercial roofing systems are very durable and are puncture resistant. Due to the durability of this type of system, it is a great choice for any roof that receives a lot of foot traffic. This is also a much safer alternative to APP modified (torch down).

SBS Modified System Options

SBS Modified Bitumen comes in various combinations of texture, thickness and color:

Textures Available:

  • Smooth
  • Granules

Colors Available:

  • White
  • Black
  • Gray
  • Tan
  • Brown
  • Additional colors available.

SBS Modified System Application

SBS Modified Bitumen membrane is adhered using hot asphalt, cold-applied adhesive, or mechanical attachment. To learn more about the types of applications used to install this style of roof, contact us.

SBS Modified System Maintenance

Like any commercial roof system, it is very important that maintenance service is performed every five to seven years, or as required. J.E. Dixon Roofing’s Maintenance Programs are designed to upkeep and repair any minor issues that are found in the roof systems, such as splits, tears, open seams and open projections.  It is important to prevent leaks before they occur or immediately after they are noted to prevent further damage.
