Commercial Built-Up Roof
Built-up roofing, also called BUR, is the most commonly used system on low-slope roofs. Most BURS have three parts: bitumen material, ply sheets, and one or more surfacing materials such as small stones. The top layer protects the layers beneath, from sunlight and damage from debris, and provides a safe, walkable surface.
Durable and excellent at resisting damage from foot traffic.

Why A Commercial Built-Up Roof?
BUR systems are the oldest roofing systems still in use today. This self-healing system liquefies and fills in punctures. BURs have very long useful lifespans and are excellent at resisting damage due to foot traffic. This roofing system can be installed as the thickest one available.
