How is a Built-Up Roofing System Made?
Built-up roofing systems have one singular purpose in mind: providing maximum protection. They consist of resilient waterproof membranes containing bitumen layers and reinforcing felt layers alternated one after the other. The complete installation process of a built-up roof consists of the following steps:
- The first step of the process is to lay a base sheet over the roof structure.
- Next, the roofing contractor will lay a fabric sheet over the entire perimeter, ensuring that no spot was left exposed to the elements.
- Once the roof is covered in its protective layers, bitumen will be applied as an additional reinforcement.
- Finally, the layers get sealed together through a surfacing component that provides an exceptional waterproof seal for your roof.
It’s important to note that not all built-up roofing systems are created the same. There are ballasted, hot, and cold built-up roofing systems. While their application processes slightly differ, they all feature one thing in common: a well-protected and durable roof.
