Built Up Roofing System
BUR Roofing System (Built Up Roof)The roofing membrane is built up by alternating layers of asphalt or coal tar saturated felts or fiberglass mat roofing plies. The built-up roof components are: insulation board, base sheet, hot- or cold-applied felts, surfacing materials and flashing materials. These systems can be durable and long lasting when carefully installed in multiple layers with quality bitumen, felts and flashings. Built-up roofing (BUR) can be used in both new construction projects and on existing buildings. BUR systems have low flexibility and are only appropriate on roof decks with minimal movement or where appropriate expansion joints are provided. BUR systems require periodic maintenance to maximize their service life. In some installations, BUR can be designed to be more durable and resistant to casual roof traffic.
