BUR: Built-Up and Mod-Bit: Modified Bitumen

What are BUR and Mod Bit?

Built-Up roof membranes (BUR) and Modified Bitumen (Mod-Bit) are generally composed of alternating layers of bitumen and reinforcing fabrics that create a finished membrane.

The Benefits of Built-Up and Modified Bitumen Roofing
Time-tested defense.

BUR roof systems have been utilized for over 100 years in the roofing industry. These roof systems are constructed with layers of felt and bitumen that provide a redundancy of durable protection. They are then covered with gravel, a mineral sheet cap or other weather resistant coatings. Additionally, both BUR and Mod-Bit roof systems can be installed using an array of coatings and colours.
