There are two types of built-up roofs asphalt and cold tar. Each consists of a waterproofing component, reinforcing component, and a surfacing component that protects everything from the weather.The bitumen commonly used is asphalt, cold tar, or cold applied adhesive. The surfacing materials can include gravel, slag or mineral granules), glass-fiber or mineral surfaced cap sheets for Built Up Roof Thickness.
