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.



Long Life Span

Protect your roof surface for years to come and energy saving.


Resists Damage

Durable and excellent at resisting damage from foot traffic.


Self Healing

Liquifies and fills in punctures.

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.
