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.
