Built-Up Roofing


Built-Up Roofing, sometimes referred to as a “tar and gravel” roof, is a tried and true roofing system that has been installed throughout the United States for over 100 years.

These BUR roof systems are usually installed by layering asphalt and reinforcing fabrics to create a watertight roof system. These systems are either “hot-applied” by using a mop to spread 400+ degree asphalt over the roof surface, or “cold applied”, by using solvent-based asphalt adhesives that do not need to be heated in a kettle. Once the asphalt and fabric layers have been installed, Built-Up Roofs can either be covered in a layer of roofing gravel or coated with a bright wight coating to improve the reflectivity of the roof and thermal efficiency of the building.

Andy’s Roofing is an approved applicator for the roofing industry’s leading Built-Up Roofing manufacturers, including GAF, JM, Garland, Firestone, Malarkey, and Hal Industries.
