The Basics of BUR

By now, you may already know that BUR is an acronym for Built-Up Roofing. Unlike a common system like shingle roofing, BUR Modified Bitumen Roofing is made up of multiple layers - alternating bitumen and reinforcing fabrics for a finished membrane.

You may also hear it referred to as tar and gravel roofing. Some other key points to ponder about BUR systems:

  • The concept is about a century old
  • Bitumen is usually asphalt, coal tar or cold-applied adhesive
  • Common surfacing options are aggregate, glass-fiber or mineral surfaced cap sheets, hot asphalt, aluminum, or elastomeric coatings.
  • Aggregate can be gravel, mineral granules, or slag
  • Ideal for flat or low-slope roofing

Why are BUR systems better suited for flat roofing when compared to something like shingles? Roofing material and surface like traditional shingles aren't sealed.

On a roof with slope, water naturally runs off, so a sealant isn't required. However, on a rooftop like BUR with a seal, it still functions properly as long as the roof is regularly maintained, as is true with any type of roofing system.
