Proven and reliable option
BUR roofs have not been in use for over 100 years without good reason. Built-up roofs have proven their credibility by lasting for the long haul. In fact, a well-cared for BUR can have a lifespan of 40 years or more, living far longer than their expected service life.
Not many other commercial roofing materials can claim this level of proven reliability.
Low Maintenance Roofing Option
Reliability and the amount of maintenance required go hand-in-hand. Built-up roofing has fewer individual parts that need to be replaced, meaning there is less chance for damage.
On top of that, built up roofing is relatively easy to repair. This means if you see a blister, ripple, or cracks in the material, the affected section can easily be removed and patched. This will save you money in the long-term by avoiding expensive whole roof replacements.
Superior waterproofing and fire resistance
Thanks to the multiple layers of bitumen and saturated reinforcing fabrics, these roofs have great waterproofing. You can rest assured that your roof will protect your business against the harsh Colorado elements for years to come.
On top of that, BUR’s aggregate top layer makes it resistant to fire, which is always a huge bonus when it comes to protecting your commercial property. It also does well against strong winds.
Options for surfacing to reduce heat intake
Thanks to the special coatings on this roofing system that have high reflectivity values, you’ll have a consistent building temperature throughout. Let’s face it, commercial energy costs simply aren’t cheap, so you’re going to enjoy every bit of energy savings built-up roofs have to offer.
On top of that, your commercial HVAC unit will experience less strain from the amount of usage it takes to keep your building at inhabitable temperatures, meaning you’ll save over time on heating and cooling maintenance costs as well!
