Built up Roofs

Built-up Roofs

A built-up roof often called BUR roofs or Tar and Gravel roofs have been used in Vancouver for over 100 years. A BUR roof uses several layers of roofing material, Tar and Gravel, to provide protection from the elements.  Due to the nature of the materials and how they are applied, BUR roofs are usually flat or very slightly sloped.

Though tough and long lasting Built-up roofs are losing popularity in favor of torch-on roofs where new advances in non-organic materials and technology offer better and longer lasting protection.

That said for some applications BUR roofs offer good value and are a valid solution and MacBeth Roofing are skilled at laying down a BUR roof that will stand the test of time. We are also proficient and doing repairs and on-going maintenance for existing installations.
