Built Up Roofing (BUR)
Built up roofing is a commercial roofing term for a roof system that is built by adding layers. Built up roofing is most often made from alternating layers of roofing felt with different waterproofing materials, coal tar pitch, asphalt, cold application adhesive, and modified asphalt. It is also known as “tar and gravel” roofing, because it’s finished off with a final layer of gravel, crushed rock, or other mineral substance, in order to minimize the effect on extreme weather.
Single-ply roofs are the most reliable flat roof solutions on the market. These come in two main types. Thermoset membranes are manufactured from rubber polymers, and require the use of liquid adhesive or tape to form a watertight seal at the overlaps. Thermoplastic membranes, made from plastic polymers, have seams formed with heat or chemical welding. Most thermoplastic membranes include a reinforcement layer of polyester or fiberglass for increased strength and stability, as well. Either way, these single ply roof materials, more commonly referred to as rubber, or plastic, roofing membranes, are probably the best choice if you need to replace flat roofing.
Sprayed Polyurethane Foam (SPF)
Sprayed polyurethane foam is a relatively new product that is sprayed onto the roof as a liquid in order to form a single, continuous, seamless structure. Because foam is flexible and lightweight, it’s perfect for irregularly shaped roofs and protrusions. For re-roofing, SPF also eliminates the need to remove the previous roof, since it can be applied directly over existing roof installations, including asphalt shingles, built-up roofs, clay tile, concrete, metal, and wood. Foam roofing systems are easy to maintain, and with a high insulation value, they can combat some of the heat issues common with flat roofing.
