What Is a Built-Up Roof?

The roof of a building with a blue sky in the backgroundA built-up roof is a roof installed with multiple layers of asphalt alternated with ply sheets or felts.

These layers are applied over a roof deck and most often over insulation that is attached to the roof decking.

This roofing system is most often applied to flat roofs and roofs with a low slope.

The installation process is usually quick and easy since layers are already pre-made and prepared.

Our installation service for BUR involves the use of top-quality sheets or rolls manufactured by the best in the industry.

They are manufactured for ease of application and quality control.

Kinds of Built-Up Roofing

Built-up roofing systems typically come in three types of systems:

  1. Styrene Butadiene Styrene (SBS).  In the installation of this BUR roofing system, hot bitumen or cold adhesives are used.  This system is excellent at accommodating low temperatures and is very flexible.  The membranes used in this BUR type are manufactured from high-quality distilled bitumen modified with polymers and selectively chosen to stabilize filler.  The outstanding features of the SBS include cold flexibility, stress resistance, and dimensional stability.
  2. Atactic Polypropylene (APP).  These are modified bitumen systems that are installed using the torch method.  The membranes are manufactured from high-quality distilled bitumen modified with polymers and selectively chosen to stabilize fiber.  They are chosen for their excellent resistance to warm and cold temperatures.  It is best used in hot climatic regions because it is less sensitive to the deteriorating effects of UV rays.
  3. Amorphous Poly-Alpha-Olefin (APAO).  These bitumen membranes are manufactured from high-quality distilled bitumen modified with elastic layer measurements polymers, amorphous poly-alpha olefin, and selectively chosen stabilizing filler.  Their outstanding features include resistance to warm and cold temperatures and aging.
