How Does SBS Roofing Work?

SBS roofing is a popular choice for commercial and residential buildings due to its exceptional durability and flexibility. It is a type of modified bitumen roofing that combines asphalt with a rubberized polymer, styrene-butadiene-styrene. This combination enhances the roof's resistance to temperature fluctuations, UV rays, and other external factors that can cause damage. The SBS roofing system is typically installed using a cold or hot-applied method, ensuring a secure and watertight seal.


Some Advantages of SBS Roofing

SBS roofing offers a variety of benefits to property owners in Edmonton, Leduc, and beyond. Some of the advantages include:


  • Superior flexibility: SBS roofing membranes can easily expand and contract with temperature changes, making them highly resistant to cracking or splitting.

  • Excellent weather resistance: SBS roofing provides excellent protection against extreme weather conditions, including hail, heavy rain, and strong winds.

  • Long-lasting performance: With proper installation and maintenance, SBS roofing can have a long lifespan, offering reliable protection for your property.

  • Enhanced waterproofing: The rubberized polymer in SBS roofing provides superior waterproofing capabilities, reducing the risk of leaks and water damage.

  • Energy efficiency: SBS roofing can help improve energy efficiency by reflecting sunlight and reducing heat transfer into the building.

Installation Methods of SBS Roofing

SBS roofing can be installed using two primary methods: cold-applied and hot-applied. Each method has its own advantages and considerations. Let's explore these installation methods in more detail:

Cold-applied Method

The cold-applied method for installing SBS roofing involves adhesives or self-adhering membranes that do not require heat or an open flame. Here's an overview of the cold-applied installation process:

  • Surface preparation: The roof substrate is cleaned and prepared to ensure proper adhesion of the SBS roofing system.

  • Application of adhesive: A cold-applied adhesive is spread evenly on the prepared roof surface using a roller or spray equipment.

  • Placement of SBS membrane: The SBS roofing membrane, which comes with a self-adhesive backing, is carefully unrolled and pressed onto the adhesive-coated surface. Proper alignment and overlap are crucial to create a watertight seal.

  • Seam sealing: Joints and seams are sealed using compatible adhesives or tapes to enhance the integrity of the roofing system.

  • Final inspection: Once the installation is complete, a thorough inspection is conducted to ensure the proper application of the SBS roofing system.

The cold-applied method offers several benefits, including ease of installation, versatility, and safety due to the absence of open flames. It is suitable for a wide range of roofing structures and can be applied in various weather conditions.

Hot-applied Method

The hot-applied method involves heating the SBS roofing materials to activate the adhesive properties and create a strong bond. Here's an overview of the hot-applied installation process:

  • Surface preparation: The roof substrate is cleaned and prepared to provide a clean and smooth surface for the SBS roofing system.

  • Heating of SBS membrane: A propane torch or hot asphalt kettle is used to heat the SBS membrane. The heat softens the membrane, allowing it to adhere to the prepared surface.

  • Application of SBS membrane: The heated SBS membrane is carefully rolled out onto the roof surface and pressed firmly to ensure proper adhesion. The overlapping seams are then heated and fused together to create a seamless and watertight roofing system.

  • Cooling and inspection: As the SBS membrane cools down, it solidifies and forms a durable roofing surface. A final inspection is conducted to verify the quality of the installation and address any necessary touch-ups.

The hot-applied method provides excellent adhesion and durability, making it suitable for roofs that require enhanced resistance to extreme weather conditions and foot traffic.
