Built up Roofing

The correct specification is critical for successful waterproofing.

Built-Up Roofing (BUR) is one of the oldest low-slope roof systems still used on both residential and commercial roofs today. BUR's century-old track record is unsurpassed in the roofing industry and continues to afford dependable service to homeowners and building owners alike.

Built-up roofs are used on heavy traffic roofs which require the durability of 3 - 4 layers of felt paper embedded in the tar material. 

Built-up roofs are also used on buildings which are sensitive to any type of water leakage. As stated, a built-up roof is the least likely to leak over a twenty-year plus life cycle. We tend to use built-up roofs on industrial plants, hospitals, and public buildings such as schools.
