Houston Built-Up Roofing, also known as BUR, has evolved from hot tar roofing that was commonly used as a method for installing roofs more than 150 years ago. Durable and reliably waterproof, BUR is a water-tight membrane made up of layers of bitumen petroleum mixture alternating with layers of fabric with reinforcements. A reflective roof coating can be applied to the top layer for energy savings.

Advantages of Houston Built-Up (BUR) Roofing:

  • Multi-ply application forms a waterproof and durable roofing blanket.
  • Long lifespan that lasts many years.
  • Bottom layers maintain safeguard against water even if the top surface layer is compromised.
  • Exterior surface can be quickly fixed.
  • Low maintenance.
  • High resistance to fire.
  • Good insulating qualities.
  • Low expansion and contraction rates reduce chances of materials moving and cracking.
  • No nails or screws required, reducing the risk of leaks from hardware in top layers.
  • Multiple layers from three-, four-, five-ply and more, can be added to accommodate building requirements and budgets.
