What is Built-Up Roofing?

Built-up roofing is frequently called “tar and gravel” roofing. Specifically, the “tar” is a black, viscous material called bitumen. This is a blend of hydrocarbons that is either derived from a natural source or can be made from petroleum distillation residue. This just means that bitumen is generally made of asphalt, coal tar or cold-applied adhesive. This type of roofing became popular in the 1970s, and it is the most suitable type of roofing for buildings with low slopes and flat roofs.

The Lifespan

This type of roofing can last anywhere from 15 to 30 years, depending on the climate of the region and the materials used. If maintained regularly, these roofs can even last you up to 40 years. These roofs usually thrive in warmer climates, which is why they are perfect for North Texas.

Built-Up Roofing Installation:

If the bitumen is made of asphalt or coal tar, it will be brought to a high temperature before being applied either with mops or mechanized spreaders. If the bitumen for the built-up roofing is a cold-applied adhesive, heating before application isn’t needed.

What Are the Benefits?

Built-up roofs are great for a number of reasons. We have listed some of them below.

  • Low Maintenance: this roofing is installed in large sheets. This makes them less susceptible to damage, and there are fewer parts that would need to be replaced. They are also easy to repair if something goes wrong.
  • Long-Term Durability: built-up roofings can sustain poundings from hailstorms. This is perfect for North Texas weather, since hailstorms are fairly common. These roofs are impervious to strong winds, which makes them ideal during tornado season.
  • Fire Protection: these roofs have fire retardant properties and an attractive finish. Cold built-up roofing doesn’t produce any harmful fumes.
  • Water Resistance: built-up roofs have multi-layer protection. It protects against water and helps reduce leaks.
