Modified Roofing System

NY Roof Contractors Modified roofing products evolved in the 80’s as a result of asbestos being removed from roofing products and the insurance issues and dangers related to the use of “hot tar”.

The roofing industry began adding modifiers to asphalt (asphalt modifiers) in order to stabilize the material and the “modified market” was born.

Bird Protection

Plainview Roof Company The hazards of pigeon infestation result from droppings and nesting materials. These substances can clog water flow drains, leading to roof flooding; block ventilation systems, restricting air flow; and cause fires, as the nests are often constructed of flammable substances such as twigs and straw. The acidic nature of the droppings can cause damage to tar-based roofing materials, as well as numerous other building materials, such as air conditioning equipment, insulation, and siding.
