Built-up roofing (BUR) is one of the oldest roofing methods used for commercial properties in the US. It has a proven record of providing long-term performance for property owners. Arry’s Roofing discusses the benefits of installing a BUR system for your home.
BUR systems provide excellent waterproofing and ultra-violet protection. As your expert Dunedin, FL, roofers, we install BUR systems that provide multi-layer protection. The multiple layers of bitumen-saturated felts and bitumen create a water resistant barrier that provides many years of reliable protection. These multiple layers also act as a backup layer if the bad weather damages the top layer. The multiple layers also create a stable and rigid surface that helps the system withstand foot traffic.
Low Life Cycle Costs
Thanks to its centuries of proven performance, the proper maintenance procedures for BUR systems are well known. BUR systems are easy to repair and maintain, particularly if you work with Arry’s Roofing. These maintenance procedures are also cost-effective. BUR systems have a low life cycle cost. They are more affordable to install, maintain, and remove when compared with other roofing materials.
Improved Energy Efficiency
We don’t just provide Tampa roof repair; we also provide coating systems that will improve your BUR system’s energy efficiency. BUR systems exhibit outstanding resistance to the conduction of heat between the interior and exterior of the structure. This results in noticeable reductions in your cooling and heating costs. Our roof coatings can make BUR systems even better with the addition of a white reflective surface, leading to energy savings of up to 50% or more of the roof’s original cost.
BUR is an excellent choice for your low-sloped roofing system because of its excellent protection, durability, and low maintenance requirements. Arry’s Roofing has been installing BUR systems and other commercial roofing systems for over 25 years. We follow strict industry standards and use only first-class roofing materials on every project.
