Built-up roofing is one of the most prevalent roofing techniques, which is used for low slope roofs. It offers multi-faceted benefits to residential and commercial properties, including excellent waterproofing protection, UV protection and low maintenance. At Big Texas Roofing, we offer an intelligible range of built-up roofing services based on the unique requirements of the customers. Built-up roofing creates a reliable waterproof membrane that protects your rooftop against heat, moisture, and harmful UV rays. This membrane is made with layers of bitumen, which helps it withstand harsh weather conditions. We are a leader in rendering the built-up roofing services with a comprehensive line of fiberglass felts and mineral-surfaced cap sheets.
Asphalt, coal tar, or cold-applied adhesive are the most common bitumen that we use in built-up roof systems. The asphalt or coal tar is heated in a kettle or tanker before being spread out using a mop or a mechanical spreader. Because solvent-based asphalts are used in cold-applied adhesives, they do not need to be heated before use. Aggregate, such as gravel, slag, or mineral granules, as well as glass-fibre or mineral-surfaced cap sheets, are all alternatives for built-up roof surfaces. Hot asphalt wiped over the entire surface, aluminium coatings, and elastomeric coatings are other alternatives.
Benefits of Built-Up Roofing
- Built-up roofing is a reliable roofing technique that has been prevalent in the USA for a century. It involves the coating of the roof surfacing materials with paint or other reflective materials to dramatically reduce the harmful effects of the UV rays.
- The built-up roofing materials are constructed with durable materials that can withstand extensive foot traffic. This roofing is particularly designed for heavy-duty and long-lasting wear.
- Built-up roofs have multiple levels of protection, so even if the top layer is damaged, the subsequent ones below will keep the building dry.
