Phoenix Built-Up Roofing Installation

Built-up roofs, also known as BUR’s, have been in use for over 100 years on flat top commercial buildings and industrial buildings.

BURs generally consist of multiple, alternating layers of bitumen and fabric. In built up roofs, asphalt, cold tar or cold-applied adhesive typically comprise the bitumen portion of the roofing system.  This is applied in alternate layers with the fabric.

The fabric used in BUR systems typically consists of fiber glass, organic ply sheets, or various felts.  These materials will be applied back and forth in layers with the bitumen compound.

The top layer of a BUR may be coated with some type of gravel, fiber glass cap sheets, or hot asphalt.
