Built-Up Roofing

Why Built-Up Roofing?

Built-Up Roofing is built to last. Its construction involves multiple asphalt, felt, and bitumen layers, meticulously built to create a robust and resilient roofing system. This time-tested approach provides reliable protection against the elements, making it a trusted choice for commercial properties.

  • Unrivaled Protection and Durability

Enhanced Energy Efficiency

Our modern built-up roofing systems go beyond tradition by incorporating insulation layers. By adding insulation materials such as rigid foam or fiberboard between the roof layers, BUR roofs can significantly improve energy efficiency in commercial buildings. This insulation helps regulate temperature, reducing heat loss during colder months and minimizing heat gain in warmer seasons. With enhanced energy efficiency, your commercial property can enjoy reduced utility costs and a more comfortable indoor environment.

Unrivaled Protection and Durability

Waterproofing is a hallmark of built-up roofing systems. The multiple layers of asphalt and bitumen create a watertight barrier, ensuring your commercial property remains dry and safeguarded against leaks. The top layer’s gravel or mineral surfacing also provides superior UV protection, extending the roof’s lifespan. Additionally, BUR roofs exhibit exceptional resistance to punctures and impacts, making them ideal for buildings with foot traffic or equipment installation.

Women Looking out Window
Step 1: Inspection & Consultation

We’ll meet with you in person to properly assess the situation. I’m not a salesperson – I’m a roofing professional with years of experience. That means I’m not trying to sell you a bill of goods – I genuinely want to discover what’s best for your home. 


Some specifics I’ll be looking for during our meeting:

– How old is your Building?

– What is the pitch of your roof?

– Does the architecture of your building require a unique gutter system?

– What is the layout of your lot?

Step 2: Preparation

  • If we need to deliver materials early, please clear a spot in your driveway so that they unloaded easily and stored safely out of the way of vehicles.
  • Please mark any underground sprinkler heads, to ensure none gets covered by materials or equipment during the project.
  • Cover all outdoor equipment, fire pits, BBQ equipment, etc
  • For all safety purposes, please keep clear while we’re working on your project.
Step 3: Installation

It’s time for your project to begin! On the agreed upon day and time, our crew will arrive at your property and start the installation process.


While it’s not a requirement, we always recommend that you be accessible while our contractors are on the job and working. Of course, if this isn’t feasible or you must leave for any reason, rest assured that we’ll continue to uphold our commitment and integrity.

Step 4: Cleanup

Our crews always clean as they work, striving to keep the workspace and your property as tidy and safe as possible throughout the project. Once the remodel or installation is complete, we will go through the following checklist:


  • Your property will be thoroughly raked.
  • We’ll comb through your property using a nail magnet to pick up any leftover debris.
  • We will assist in moving any items that were moved for the construction back to their original spots.

When we’re through, you should not be able to tell we were there!

Step 5: Satisfaction

While we always strive to carry out every project to perfection, we understand that occasional issues may sometimes arise. We’d like to take care of these issues while we’re still on-site, if possible.


As such, when we’re finished with the construction and cleanup process, we will perform a complete and thorough walk-through with you to make sure all expectations have been met, and that you are no less than 100% satisfied with our work.

Working with us is easy – every step of the way.
