Built Up Roofing

Built Up Roofing is composed of three elements: felt, bitumen, and surfacing.

The felts, which are made of glass, organic or polyester fibers, serve much the same purpose as reinforcing steel in concrete. The felts are necessary as reinforcement to resist the extreme pulling forces in the roofing material. Bitumen, either coal-tar or asphalt is the “glue” that holds the felts together. It is also the waterproofing material in the system. The surfacing that are normally applied to built-up roofs are smooth asphalt, gravel, slag, or a mineral-coated cap sheet, and serves as an excellent wearing surface. This method has proved tried and true for many years.
