What are common types of flat roofing systems?
BUR (Built up Roof)
Probably the most common, BUR (Built up roof) is traditional hot tar and gravel. It is built from three or more plies of waterproof material which is alternated with hot tar. This type of flat roof was most commonly made with tar paper but they are now gradually using a more advance material like fiberglass.
Another flat roofing system is Modified Bitumen. Modified Bitumen roofing systems consist of asphalt with modifiers then added to give it durability. When modified they’re given a plastic or rubber like consistency. These are either one, two, (most common), or three ply-systems.
TPO (thermoplastic polyolefin)
TPO is a single ply roofing system. The membranes are produced by calendering with lamination, extrusion with lamination, or extrusion-coating techniques. TPO sheets are a blend of polypropylene and ethylene propylene polymers and usually are reinforced with polyester. TPO sheets contain colorant, flame retardants, UV absorbers and other proprietary substances to achieve desired physical properties.
