Built-Up Roofing (BUR) is a popular asphalt roofing system commonly used in commercial and industrial buildings. It’s ability to provide multi-layer protection makes it highly water resistant and capable of providing long-lasting protection from environmental stress. It’s exceptionally resistant to heat conduction, resulting in improved energy efficiency and lower heating and cooling costs. It is known for holding up well against extreme wind and meets strict fire resistance requirements. This cost-effective solution is a great investment due to his long life and lower cost margin.
How Are They Built?
Built-up roofing is comprised of several layers of bitumen surfaces, which are usually made up of asphalt, coal tar, or cold-applied adhesive, depending on the size and budget of your project. The roof is then finished with a coating or aggregate layer to seal the bitumen.
The Benefits of TPO Roof Systems:
- Recyclable and environmentally friendly
- Energy efficient – reduce your heating and cooling costs
- Minimal and easy maintenance
- Resistant to chemicals
- UV heat resistant
PVC roofing is a highly pliable and durable material that can be used in a wide range of commercial roofing applications. PVC is particularly known for its ability to hold up against jet fuels and fatty oil exhaust, making it ideal for the food manufacturing, restaurant, and aviation industries. Read More…
TPO is a synthetic rubber compound that possesses a highly reflective quality not often found in commercial roofing systems. It has the ability to reflect up to 87% of UV rays, allowing it to maintain a temperature close to the ambient air, meaning heat is not transmitted into the interior of the building. Read More…
