Built-Up Roofing aka BUR Roofing

Built-up roofing (BUR), AKA “Tar and Gravel,” is one of the most popular systems used in low-slope roofing. Built-up roofing consists of several layers, including; Bitumen, Asphalt, Cold-Applied Adhesives, Coal Tar, and Reinforcing Fabrics.

This roofing system has been around for well over 100 years! Built-up roofing has stood the test of time because it is damage resistant (hail), a great insulator (which reduces energy costs), easy to repair and coatings are available to make it UV Resistant.
