You could say BUR Roofing Systems invented the game. Having been implemented for over 100 years, this is the most battle-tested system here or anywhere. Predominantly known for its redundancy — meaning its 4+ plies offer multiple layers of protection — and its brag-worthy high-puncture resistance and long-term weather and waterproofing, there’s no system more proven or reliable. There are a variety of different types, including smooth asphalt, ballasted, and cold built-up, each with its own applications, settings, and construction compatibilities.
Built Up Roofing, or BUR for short, has been around for over a century and is considered by many as the original roofing system. BUR roofs have long been a tried and true system in the industry for many years and will continue to stand the test of time for many years to come.
