Everything You Need To Know About Built-Up Roofing
If you’re considering installing a built-up roof, here are the key things to know. Built-up roofing (BUR) has been around for a long time, and it is a type of roofing system.That is typically made up of a number of layers. You will see these roofing systems installed on buildings with flat roofs, but they require the services of commercial roofing contractors for installation due to the complexity of the installation.
How Long Does a Built-Up Roofing Last
A BUR can last for a maximum of 40 years, depending on certain factors. If you live in a cold climate, such as in the Yukon, you can expect a roof to last around 15 years before it needs to be replaced. The contractor used for the installation and the number of panels laid on the roof are another question to think about. If a contractor is not experienced in installing BUR, your roof may not last as well as you hoped.

Benefits of Roofing
1) Newer Technology
Since the 1960s, roofing technology has improved greatly, so today’s residential homes are much more resistant to weather damage. Even if you want the same kind of roof, the techniques for manufacturing the tiles or shingles and laying them expertly into the roof.Design have improved massively in recent years. A new roof can provide many of the benefits of a modern residential roof. Including economic advantages, ecological benefits, and protection from weather.
2) Energy Efficiency
One of the first things you might notice about modern asphalt composite shingles is that they appear to be quite warm on the surface. However, beneath the surface these shingles are much cooler than traditional shingles. Recent innovations have allowed manufacturers to create shingles that reflect more of the sun’s rays than they absorb. This may lead to improved sun protection for homeowners. A new roof can help offset some of the cost of a power bill over time.
3) Curb Appeal
Almost no one realizes how its roof really affects the exterior impression of a home until there is something to compare it to. Your old roof may be slightly sagging, faded, dirty, or have signs of wear that are hard to see from a distance but give the feel of an old home. A new roof can enhance the appearance of any home, whether you’re selling or not. It’s important to choose the right roof style and color, and to get it installed by a professional.
4) Manufacturer Warranty
How long has it been since your roof was last inspected and/or had any warranty work performed? The warranty has long expired by the time homeowners buy a property, so most people don’t know about it. The warranty will cover certain repairs and possibly parts and labor for a set period of time. This means that you may not receive roof repairs for some time after this installation.
5) Safety for Roof Cleaning
Old roofs can present a variety of hazards for people who need to access them,such as ladders and climbing equipment. Rocks, soft spots, and areas with sagging roofs can all make it dangerous for people who need to get on a roof. Roof cleaners and maintenance services may be at risk when working on roofs in these areas. On the other hand, the new roof is firm, firm and safer for precise movement.
6) Property Value
If you plan to sell the property within the next five years, a new roof can help you increase your asking price significantly. Finally, you are offering your buyers the opportunity to snag a home with a proven safe and low-maintenance roof, possibly with a guarantee. Some people have found their resale value to be significantly higher than what they paid for their home.
8) Installing New Features
A new roof may not have occurred to you yet, but it could open up a number of possibilities. You can add skylights, dormer windows, vents.Even a new chimney if you wanted to combine your re-roofing with other renovations. Since you are already tearing the old roof out, you can simply integrate new features into the new roof’s design.
9) A New Look
Finally, a new roof is your opportunity to completely change the look of your home. Choosing a new color for your house can change the look of your property from the street.Give a different impression to visitors, and might even make you forget it’s yours for the first few weeks. If you want to increase your home’s value and reduce your stress, consider replacing your roof instead of repairing it.

11) DON’T GO CHEAP
It’s tempting to go with cheap materials and the lowest price, but keep this in mind:The quality of your roof’s construction and the cost of the materials can shorten its lifespan.The standard “good” option typically consists of three-tab shingles.These give any roofline a neat appearance and are available in a variety of neutral colors.However, laminated shingles may provide you with additional design and protection options if you choose to spend a little bit more.
12) KEEP AN EYE OUT FOR NAILS
Ask the installer to use “the magnet” to pick up any discarded roofing nails that may have fallen into. The yard before you give them the final payment for their work.This machine makes it simple to find and remove these small metal nails.Which if left in your yard can cause serious issues.
