Tulsa built up roofing systems have been around for decades. That is because this style of roofing provides great protection against water damage and water leaks. Little has been done in the way of changing this style of roofing, and that is because of how well it works. “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” is the best way to describe built up roofing and it is still a widely accepted practice for businesses and commercial buildings. These roofs will add an enhanced value to your business as they provide continued leak protection and a seal that will last for years to come.
What Is A Built Up Roof?
Built Up roofing consists of many layers of asphalt and felt sheets that are alternated and applied over a roof deck. It is finished off by adding a stone or gravel top layer for rigidity. This also helps with reinforcing the insulation of your roof. These low maintenance roofs are seen as waterproof and fire resistant and reflect light away from your building. The only real downside is that they take longer to install than a traditional roof.
