Built-Up Roofing Specialists Orlando

Built-up roofing (BUR), which is also known as “tar and gravel” roofing, has one of the most solid reputations in the commercial roofing market. While it has been common for some time, it is still a complicated process that requires finesse. Our roofers at Red Rhino Roofing have the skills, training, tools, and expertise necessary to complete a BUR installation that will help to protect your building against damages, severe weather conditions, fire, and other events which might have an adverse impact on your structure.

We also have experience with different commercial roofing systems including single-ply membrane roofing, flat roofs, modified bitumen roofs, and SPF roofing.

Built-Up Roofing Advantages

There are many reasons why BUR roofing is one of the go-to options for commercial roofing. While it is a popular commercial roofing technique, it does require skilled expertise in order to ensure a job well done. Red Rhino Roofing is familiar with this and other commercial roofing techniques so you can rest assured your commercial roof is in good hands.

The main advantages to a BUR roof are as follows:

  • Exceptional durability. Its multiple layers ensure that BUR roofs are built to endure a lot, from harsh weather to general wear and tear.
  • Resistant to extreme winds.
  • Seamless and waterproof. The continuous solid surface does not require seams, which seals off the areas that are most likely to leak over time.
  • UV Ray reflection. Provides protection from ultraviolet rays. This also functions as a cooling mechanism for the building.
  • Low maintenance. There is very minimal upkeep and maintenance needed after it is installed.

Components of Built-Up Roofs

The defining feature of built-up roofs is its multiple layers of materials, which are laminated together to give the roofing its durability. These multiple layers consist of the following:

Base sheet

The base sheet is the foundational layer and is usually made of fiberglass, asphalt coated organic sheet, or asphalt coated venting sheet.

Felts or fabrics

Coal or tar saturated This layer is made up of organic felt, cotton fabric or burlap that has been saturated in coal or tar.

Bitumen

The most common material used for the bitumen layer is asphalt, but this can also include coal tar or lap cement.

Surfacing component

This outermost level consists of gravel, asphalt or minerals. This can also be topped with a reflective coating.

    This company is one of the best companies and actually it is the best for me. Their prices are affordable and take care of their customers. They are always on time and finish the work fast and professionally. I hired them to install a new … More roof to my house and everything was done in two days. Mr. Mark and Ive are very kind and helpful. They answer my calls every time I call or send a message. They would help you with doing wind mitigation papers professionally. I totally recommend them for anyone looking to install or repair his/her roof in affordable and professional way.

    Mark's company Red Rhino Roofing put a metal roof on our home and we couldn't be more pleased. Mark had a couple of different crews out: one to tear off the old shingles, prep the decking, and install underlayment; and another … More to install the metal. This is not uncommon in the roofing industry as different team members have different skill sets. Mark's foreman was on site everyday to oversee everything. With any issues that came up, Mark and Franco, his foreman, were very responsive and made sure everything was done according to code. You never really know the quality of work a company will perform until they start, but we were pleasantly surprised. They cleaned up after themselves thoroughly from the gutters out to the street leaving hardly any debris. It is hard to find anyone in the home service business that keeps their word. Mark kept his and we appreciated that. Now, our home is cooler, the electric bill is lower, and our insurance rates are reduced. Selecting a metal roof through Red Rhino was one of the best decisions we have made for our home.

    Very happy with our two roof replacements. They were done quickly and over the weekend. They did everything they said they would! The price was competitive and Mark took good care of us. Would recommend again!
  • Avatar Garry Abare ★★★★★ a year ago
    Mark's crew did several different jobs at my home, with the main service being a replacement of my wooden soffit and fascia with vinyl. Looks fantastic! I've had several compliments from my neighbors on the new appearance. I would … More highly recommend them if you need to have this work done on your home.
