Built-Up Roofing

A long-standing roofing material most commonly used on low-slope roofs, built up roofing is also known for short as BUR. Used for more than a century, built up roofs are also referred to as tar and gravel roofs, comprised of alternating layers of bitumen and reinforcing fabrics to result in a finished membrane. The layers in between are known as ply sheets, made stronger by mats constructed of either fiberglass or organic materials. There are many different types of BUR, ranging from smooth asphalt built up and ballasted asphalt, with both kinds using coal tar, asphalt or cold-applied adhesive.
