Built Up Roofs

For superior results, choose Guardian Roofs to service your built up roof.

For decades, built up roofs have been the standard choice for all kinds of low slope roofs, especially commercial roofs. This type of roof consists of layers of roofing felt topped with a sealant, followed by a final coat of gravel and more sealant. For hot built up roofs, the sealant will be hot asphalt or tar. For cold built up roofs, the sealant will be a cold-applied adhesive.

When properly installed and cared for, built up roofs are extremely reliable. They deliver excellent protection against water penetration and UV damage, and are also able to withstand extreme weather such as high winds. Although installation can be slow and costly, the result is a long-lasting surface with very low maintenance costs.
