What Is Built-Up Roofing?
Built-up roofing systems (BUR), called tar and gravel roofs, are time-honored roofing solutions that boast optimal longevity and durability. These roofing systems encompass layers of roof felts fused with bitumen or asphalt. These materials create a watertight barrier to protect the structure of your home or business.
Why Choose Built-Up Roofing Systems
Built-up roofing systems are a favored roofing option as they offer incredible weather, UV ray, fire, impact, and moisture resistance while being highly cost-effective. Due to the layered materials, they provide durable waterproofing abilities that combat leaks and damage. Furthermore, they include a prompt, minimally-invasive installation process and are easy to clean.
Advantages of Built-Up Roofing Systems
Built-up roofing systems come packed with benefits. Some of the leading advantages include the following:
- Durable and resistant to water, fire, and impact
- Decorative and versatile
- Unrivaled ability to bridge cracks and joints
- Premium color stability
- Long-term warranties
- High tensile-strength
- Optimal energy efficiency
- Improved insulation
- Reflective materials available to combat UV rays
How Does Built-Up Roofing Work?
Built-up roofing works by mechanically adhering base sheets to the roof deck. Once complete, roof felts are placed and secured with a bitumen material with alternating levels of bitumen and fabric. The final layer is a cap sheet made of bitumen or, in some cases, a flood coat topped with a layer of gravel or coating for enhanced protection.
Built-Up Roofing Installation
Built-up roofing offers a timely and effective process. The installation of built-up roofing includes the following steps:
- Preparation of the substrate: inspections, removal of damage, and cleaning.
- Application: application of roof felt and bitumen to create a durable membrane.
- Final surface: a final layer of gravel or reflective material is applied for enhanced protection.
In some cases, built-up roofing cannot be added to a roof. In these cases, the original roof must be removed and replaced. This may happen due to the following:
- The roof deck has excessive damage and cannot serve as a safe subsurface
- The structure has undergone many roofing jobs, and the weight load is too high
- The existing roof is plagued by excessive moisture
