Don’t Risk Another Winter With Your Current Gravel Roofing System

Benefits of B.U.R

  • Durable: A roofing system needs to survive the elements to maintain its reputation.
    A BUR can survive windstorms and hailstorms without suffering any damage. A BUR’s ability to withstand punctures is another advantage. The system won’t be harmed by dropped tools or errant footfall on the roof because of the installation’s layers.
  • Maintenance Is A Breeze: You should be aware that a BUR system is built in huge portions and has a low roof profile relative to the top of the building. Another area where the BUR is cost-effective is that it requires fewer materials and is less vulnerable to the whims of the weather.
  • Virtually Leakproof: The BUR performs better than single-ply roofing systems in the area of water leakage, which is where it is most needed. The BUR is formed by layering fabric and asphalt to provide the industry’s best watertight seal. Because it is impermeable to water and the glue that keeps roofing systems together, asphalt is five times more protective than other types of roofing.
  • Flame Retardant: Excellent fire-retardant surfaces are provided by the three varieties of BUR, which stop fires from starting and spreading on the roofing system. Ballasted roofing systems have a beautiful appearance and offer the best protection, whereas cold BUR is a “green” option that does not release any harmful waste when it is placed.
  • Reduce Energy Consumption: In the past, your roofing system and the sun’s UV radiation were only separated by a layer of gravel. The UV rays are reflected off the roof by a white reflective coating, which lowers the amount of heat that enters the structure through the roof. Your cooling expenses will significantly decrease, and over time, the financial investment in the roofing system will more than pay for itself.

I had a hard time finding a roofing company to inspect my 4-story townhouse, but these guys did it with a drone! Not only that but they found that it was my attached neighbours who had the problem with falling shingles and mine were secure. I am so happy I went with this company for the peace of mind, and they were honest enough to tell me that my shingles were good. If you want to deal with professionals who find solutions not just more problems – this is the right place.
The reviews speak for themselves!! and definitely not exaggerated! Darwin and his Crew are professionals who respect the home owners time and property, they do in-fact do a professional job without cutting corners! and go above and beyond to ensure that your roof or any other anomalies are outlined/communicated to the home owner. You want a piece of mind to fix a leaky roof and finding the root cause! I do! Definitely will use them again! Thank you once again for the great work 🙂

Built Up Tar and Gravel Flat Roofing for Commercial and Industrial

When people think of flat roofs, they tend to think of the old fashioned Built Up Tar and Gravel roofs as these are still quote common, and the most traditional flat roofing style. These roofs have between 4-5 layers of asphalt based organic paper held together with layers of hot asphalt (tar). Installation can get quite messy for these roofs as it involves large hot kettles which need to be safely transported to the roof top. The last layer added are the pea-sized granules which helps protect the tar from UV rays.

These roofs may be mechanically fastened, or adhered to. Plus, the seams of these roofs are heat welded.

Why buy this type?

  • For those who prefer time tested, tried and true systems, this is a traditional type and style of flat roof
  • This type of roof will cost less than the other flat roofing options

Lastly, how do you choose the right contractor?

  • Look for those with the right credentials and expertise to ensure your job is done with the highest quality in workmanship at a reasonable price. You should always look for:
  • Valid WSIB
  • Liability Insurance
  • Written quote
  • Professional in-home estimate
  • Underlayment, ice and water, new metal flashings should be included in sloped roof quotes
