What is a Built-Up Roof?
Built-Up roofs are made of multiple layers of fabric and bitumen. There are two basic types, asphalt, and cold tar. They both consist of a waterproofing component, reinforcing component, and a surfacing component which protects everything from the weather. When it is installed, our craftsman first lay down the bitumen, which is the cold tar or the asphalt. Next, a surfacing material is layered. The most common surfacing materials are gravel, slag mineral granules, glass-fibers or mineral surface cap sheets. These surfacing materials add thickness to the roofing. To secure the roof, a coating is applied to the top layer for protection. All of these layers will protect your home from leaks and water damage.
