All roofing materials suffer from daily wear and tear and are also susceptible to damage from extreme weather conditions. Flat roofs are particularly vulnerable to damage from hot weather.
For many years, flat roofs were exclusively made from built-up roofing. Innovation, however, has introduced an advanced material for flat roofs called modified bitumen. This roofing material was introduced in the early 1960s and has grown increasingly popular in both the residential and commercial sectors ever since.
