Modified roofing is composed of five layers of material. Specifically, these layers include:

  1. Insulation
  2. Modified base sheets
  3. Modified bitumen membranes
  4. Adhesives
  5. Surfacing

Modified bitumen roofing has been around in the United States since about 1975, so it is a reliable, trusted roofing option that has been around for some time. The adhesive layer provides waterproofing while the surfacing protects your roof against UV rays.
