AbstractModified bituminous roofing is one of the fastest growing systems for commercial and industrial applications, It occupies the middle ground between the traditional built up roof (BUR) systems and the new generation single ply roof (SPR) systems, Originally developed in Europe, modifiedbituminous membranes were introduced in the 1970s defense to the waterproofing characteristics of the system. The cap sheet's upper surface is coated with mineral granules, metal foils, or various liquid coatings. It increases the membrane's weather ability and UV resistance. Installation of the cap sheet can be done in different ways; it can be torched, hot-mopped, cold-applied, or self-adhered to the base sheet.
