What Is a Built-Up Roof?

A built-up roof (BUR) is a multi-layered roofing system. They’re installed on flat roofs and use alternating layers of materials to provide exceptional protection. Built-up roofs are composed of:

  • A base sheet: The base sheet is typically made from polyester, felt, or fiberglass and provides a stable foundation for the other layers to adhere to.
  • Fiber sheets: The fiber sheets usually alternate with the bitumen layers and provide better insulation.
  • Bitumen layers: The bitumen layers are made from asphalt, gravel, or small stones and provide durability and weatherproofing.

There may be multiple bitumen layers depending on the specific roofing system. Each layer is adhered to the next to create a strong, long-lasting roofing system.

A built-up roof provides superior benefits, including:

  • Water resistance: Leaks are unlikely because the water can’t penetrate through the roofing system’s multiple layers.
  • Fire resistance: High-quality built-up roofing systems are class A fire-rated.
  • Long life span: BUR roofing systems last 15 to 30 years.
  • Energy efficiency: Built-up roofs often have a reflective top coat that reflects the sun’s rays, meaning your HVAC system works more effectively.

Built-Up Roofing vs. Single-Ply Roofing

Typically, a modern flat method employs single-ply roofing, also known as TPO roofing, that is chemically bonded, thus creating a strong layer of protection against seeping water and UV rays.

Built-up roofing has similar benefits, delivering superior waterproofing and reliability with finishing options that add UV resistance.

While single-ply roofing has lower upfront costs compared to built-up roofing, it costs much higher with ongoing maintenance and may be more vulnerable to UV rays.
