Built Up Roof System Repair and Replacement Services
A built-up roofing system (or BUR) is a type of flat roofing made of multiple layers of asphalt alternated with ply sheets. These layers are topped with a sealant cap sheet or asphalt giving it excellent weather and damage resistance. BUR is typically done atop the insulation layer over the roof’s surface.
A popular choice for flat or low-slope roofs, this system has been used for over 100 years in the U.S. The multiple layers that comprise a built-up roofing system can be hot applied or utilizing cold-applied adhesives and creates an excellent barrier against water, which is a big issue for Northeast Ohio commercial and industrial building roofs. Typically these systems can last up to 20 years with proper installation and regular inspection and maintenance.
