Built-up roof systems consist of two or more plies of fiberglass-reinforced felts where alternate layers of bitumen are applied, topped with a Mineral Surface Cap Sheet. BUR’s systems get their exceptional resistance to weather and water from their multiple layer redundancy.
Granulated Modified Roofs
Granulated Modified bitumen roofs are similar to BUR’s except for the asphalt, which contains synthetic rubberized polymers added to attain rubber-like properties and surfaced with mineral granules. This creates a system that combines the reliability of hot asphalt BUR’s with the modern benefits of flexible plastics additives and polyester/fiberglass technologies. Typical installations are hot asphalt, torch, and self-adhered.
