Built-up Roof Membrane

If you talk about roofs that have low slopes, built-up roofs often sit at the top of the list. It's made of reinforcing material, asphalt (bitumen), and a top-layer finishing unit with stone and gravel. These built-up roofs have become trendy among property owners in Mississauga. At All Roofing, we install high-quality built-in roofs that perfectly maximize the benefits of the roofing system. No one else does it better than us.

If you don’t really know about bitumen installation, read a little here …

BUR creates a sealed surface that contrasts roof sheets for other sloping roof membranes. Flat room membranes can last up to 50 years with good care. A large amount of roofing material will last longer than the roof that is constructed.

Each BUR membrane consists of three components:

  • Ply sheets
  • Bitumen materials and
  • Surfacing materials can be one or more.

Bitumen can become hot if heated during construction so that it melts, or it can become cold if it has similar adhesive properties. It’s easy to spread a layer of cold built-up with a scrubbing brush. It does not emit toxic gases during use and is not affected by the weather. It also offers higher consistency to the roof covering than a heat constructed roof.

Find Out Why Many Customers Choose Built-Up Roofs (BUR)

As mentioned earlier, the constructed roof is one of the most common roofing methods. This trend is due to the advantages of this roof form:

  • Ease of Maintenance

The built-in roof has few elements associated with the shingle roof, making it easier to maintain, affordable and easy-to-repair. And even if the built roof is affected, usually by repairing and replacing the material, everything returns to its shape.

  • Durability

The service life of the roof under construction is between 15 and 50 years. Even after four decades, some installations are still stable. One of the most important factors in measuring the roof’s success is the roof’s longevity under construction.

  • Heating and Cooling

With many layers serving as insulation against natural elements, a built roof makes excellent insulation, especially in cooler climates. With the roof built-up, this ensures more comfortable climate control on your property.

  • Fireproof

Bitumen contains materials that act as natural fire retardants, especially roof types that use the “cold” version of bitumen. Materials such as ballast asphalt, which is commonly used in roof layers, offer additional fire protection.

The only obvious drawbacks of built-in roofs are that they are relatively expensive and require more time and resources to install than tile roofs. However, the advantages of a constructed roof are outweighed by the increase in capital, labor, and time costs.

The downside is that built roofs can be impractical to install, and installation involves exposure to toxic gases, with the exception of cold bitumen processing. In general, construction costs are relatively high, and some roof forms can be exposed to wind or water damage.

The Type of Roof We Install in Mississauga

Asphalt, coal tar, and tar are typical bituminous materials used in built-up roof systems. Depending on your roof installation’s scope, type, and budget, the materials you can use for your roofing project will vary.

As experienced roof builders, we install roofs to give you the greatest possible benefit.

The most popular types of BUR are:

  • Built-up hot
  • Built-up cold
  • Built-up Ballasted Asphalt

Ballast asphalt is quickly becoming the preferred choice for roofing due to its fire resistance and finished surface properties.

Another correct option is cold-built roofs, especially for environmentally sensitive projects, and they work better than heat-constructed roofs.

Given the popularity of BUR and its benefits, you will find roofing materials an excellent choice for roofing applications.

We hope this is of use to you. If you have additional questions about your roof or need assistance installing a new roof on your home, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
