Why a Built-Up Roofing System Is a Good Choice

As one of the top roofers in the local area, Edmunds General Contracting specializes in a wide range of commercial roofing materials. We can install and maintain modified bitumen roofing, single-ply roofing and built-up roofing (BUR) systems. Today, we will discuss the great features and benefits of BUR systems.

Ease of Installation and Reliability: Built-up roofing systems are easy to install for commercial roofing specialists like us. With our many years of experience, we know how this product performs over the long-term, and we know what it takes to maintain it. Another advantage to BUR systems is their low life-cycle cost. This makes BUR an excellent choice for your building.

  • Good Energy Efficiency: Built-up roofing systems are highly energy-efficient. There are many methods to make this roofing system energy-efficient. We can apply special coatings that are complaint with ENERGY STAR® on the surface, or reflective marble chips or gray slag in the flood coat of asphalt. Reflective mineral granules on the mineral-surfaced sheet can also increase the system’s resistance to heat conduction.

  • Great Weather Resistance: BUR systems are durable because of their multiple layers of bitumen. BUR system manufacturers adhere to strict standards in the manufacturing process to ensure the product features excellent uplift resistance, long-term weather performance and superb tensile strength. Since BUR systems have multiple layers, they are also more leak-resistant.

At Edmunds General Contracting, we’re proud of our excellent workmanship and our attention to detail. This is why our roofing systems can stand the test of time. We will listen to your needs, carefully inspect your building and install the roofing system that best meets your objectives. We serve many areas in MA, including Andover, Haverhill and Salem.
