There's a lot to consider when selecting a roofing membrane. The roofing material must meet standards that make it possible for your roof to perform regardless of climate or the contaminant contract. Unlike FiberTite, modified bitumen (MB) roofing membranes are made up of a blend of rubber and asphalt properties, resulting in inherent sensitivity during the installation phase. This blending also causes Modified Bitumen to be more susceptible to a variety of environmental factors compared to roofing membranes using KEE technology. This whitepaper provides a side-by-side comparison of Modified Bitumen and FiberTite's roofing membrane. Fill out the form to receive your copy.

The second biggest threat to the construction industry, behind the lack of skilled labor, is the unchecked expansion of regulatory agencies. Recent government expansion has granted the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) the authority it needs to single-handedly put contractors out of business through targeting, and repeat or excessive fines.
The purpose of this book is to provide contractors, trades, design professionals, suppliers, manufacturers and others in the industry with an understanding of their rights during an OSHA inspection as well as critical defenses to use after an OSHA citation has been issued. Topics include safety compliance, recordkeeping and reporting, responsible use of social media, constitutional protections, witness statements, settlements with OSHA, willful citations, and a discussion of defenses including unpreventable employee misconduct, multi-employer site defense and the greater hazard defense.
Finally, the book discusses some of the recent regulation changes including the new silica standard, the new confined space standards, and the increase in OSHA fines.
