BUR Roofing: Reliable and Sustainable

1If you’re in the process of constructing a new building, or replacing an outdated and/or damaged roof on an existing structure, you’ll want to consider BUR Roofing. What is BUR roofing, you ask? BUR, or built-up roofing, is a trusted roofing system that is long-lasting and worry-free; two things that are very important in a roof!

BUR roofing consists of alternating layers of reinforcing materials and a waterproof binder. Typically the binder is asphalt and the reinforcing materials are fiberglass felts. Sometimes, coal tar pitch or cold-applied adhesive are used as the waterproofing binder.

In addition to having a long lifespan, weather durability and waterproof performance, it is also cost effective. When you install a BUR roof to your building, not only do you not have to worry about spending a lot of money on the initial installation, you won’t have to worry about spending a lot of money on repairs throughout the life of the roof.

Reliability, endurance and sustainability are the top three reasons why low-slope, asphalt roofing systems are one of the most popular choice when it comes to protecting commercial and industrial buildings.
