Built Up Roofing
Built-Up Roofing is one of the oldest and most reliable methods of roofing. It was first known as composition roofing and started in the 1840’s. Built Up roofs are exactly that, they consist of several (as many as 6) plies of roof felt laminated in hot asphalt, and surfaced with gravel set in a flood coat of asphalt.
Many different types of materials with different qualities are available. This variety of material allows the quality of the roof to be tailored to the specific requirements of the structure. Built up roofs can be installed on virtually any type of roof deck. Some of the benefits of a Built Up roof are:
Modified bitumen roof systems have expanded their share of the commercial roofing market in recent years. Atactic Poly Propylene (APP) and Styrene Butadiene Styrene (SBS) modified bitumen membranes comprise about 60 percent of the commercial roofing market. The growth of modified bitumen roof systems is likely due to many factors including: Familiarity in the marketplace – modified bitumens were introduced in the U.S. in 1972, are user friendly which allows contractors to use their built-up roofing equipment and expertise.
Like Built Up Roofs, Modified Roofs consist of several (usually 2) plies of roof felt laminated in hot asphalt with a cap sheet that is covered in ceramic granules. Many different types of Modified Roofs with different qualities are available. This variety of materials allows the quality of the roof to be tailored to the specific requirements of the structure. Modified Roofs also can be installed on virtually any type of roof deck. Some of the benefits of a Modified Roof are:
Single Ply Roofs all fit into the category of elastomeric roofs. Elastomeric materials are those that will return to an original size after repeated stretching. Some elastomeric roof materials will stretch to as much as 450% their original size without damage. Some of the positive qualities of single ply roofs are:
The 3 main types of single ply roofs are:
This is a vulcanized rubber product that is manufactured in sheets up to 50 feet wide. It is available in black and white only. EPDM can be loose laid, mechanically attached, or fully adhered. Membranes are available with and without reinforcement scrim, and are made in thicknesses up to 60 mils (.060″).
TPO membranes are single-ply roof membranes constructed from ethylene propylene rubber. They are designed to combine the durability of rubber with the proven performance of hot-air weldable seams. They have been tested as having excellent resistance to ozone, are algae-resistant, environmentally friendly and safe to install. The material’s manufacturers are so confident in properly welded seams that the material is sometimes advertised as a monolithic (seamless) roof. Seam strengths are reportedly 3 to 4 times those of EPDM’s adhesive and tape seams. TPO is highly resistant to tears, impacts, and punctures with good flexibility to allow for building movement. TPO’s are available in white, light gray, and black with thicknesses of either 45 mils (.045″) or 60 mils (.060″). The width of the membrane depends on the manufacturer but they usually come in widths of six to six-and-a-half feet and are one-hundred feet in length.
PVC membrane is a roof membrane composed of only one layer of material – polyvinyl chloride. PVC roofs are specially designed to withstand ponding water- PVC membrane is welded together with hot air (no open flame) to eliminate all seams so moisture can not pass through. PVC roofing systems also reflect nearly 90% of the sun’s heat, thus lowering energy costs substantially, especially in high-heat areas such as the southwestern United States. PVC’s are available in 50 mils (.050″), 60 mils (.060″), and 80 mils, and in sheet widths up to 78″.

Roof coatings come in a variety of formulations and are an economical way to extend the life of metal roofs and single ply membranes. Coating an existing metal building roof can save the building owner as much as 75% over the cost of replacing the roof. When used as an overcoat for single ply roofs, coatings can extend the usable life by 12 to 15 years, and eliminate the need for roof tear-off and debris disposal. Applications such as these are warrantable for 10 years and comply with Energy Star requirements.
