built up roofing

an ageless,
time-tested classic

Built-Up roofing systems have been around for more than 100 years and are still being installed today. If installed correctly, this vintage classic can last decades. This roofing system is field fabricated with alternating layers of Bitumen and plies of reinforcing felts. Repeated layering in this roofing system, provides exceptional resistance to water and weathering. The finished surface can be left bare, covered with gravel, or topped with a variety of coatings. As a result, you’re left with a long-lasting, durable, and worry-free roofing system.
