Built-Up Roof (BUR) Flat Roofing

LAYERED, DURABLE, AND PROVEN

McKinnis Roofing & Sheet Metal has been working with Built-Up Roofing systems, or BUR flat roofing systems as it is known, for more than 39 years. It is composed of alternating layers of reinforcing fabric and bitumen (asphalt) and is finished with a top layer of aggregate, such as stone, gravel, or cap sheets. As one of the oldest low-slope roofing systems still in use around the Heartland, this system relies heavily on layered material to form a barrier between moisture and the outside elements and the interior of your commercial building. This layering takes experience to understand and the ability to apply correctly. When working with a roofing company, it is essential that you hire the best possible roofing contractor for your commercial BUR project.

 

 

While built-up roofing (BUR) flat roofing systems may be older when compared to modern rubber membranes, it is stilled used today due to the asphalt layers in between the insulation and cap sheets to provide extra durability. This unique roof takes time to install, that is why it’s imperative that the installation or repair work must be done properly. After all, with layered roofing material like this, if there is an issue it may not be immediately apparent to the untrained eye, hiring an expert on-scene is vital to getting the work you need assessed and delivered.
