UV Protection for Your MB or BUR Roofing System

When it comes to Modified Bitumen (MB) or Built-Up (BUR) roofs, constant sun and heat are your worst enemies. Prolonged heat and sun exposure weaken and deteriorate the substrate, creating significant leakage and moisture. Protect your MB or BUR roof from UV exposure and lengthen the life of your roof with Inland Coatings SEBS and Silicone roof coatings.
