Commercial Built Up Roofing

Built up roofing is a common commercial roofing application, and is the most popular materials used on low-slope commercial roofs .  It is composed of several layers of bitumen surfaces and an aggregate coating. The layers used on built-up roofs are called ply sheets, which are typically reinforced with fiberglass or other organic mats depending on the type of built-up roof and climate.

Built up roofing comes in several different forms. The best alternative for your business roof depends on the anticipated use. The most common types of built up roofing are asphalt built up and ballasted asphalt built up roofs. These built up roofs use asphalt, coal tar or cold-applied adhesive as the bitumen material that comprise the commercial built up roof layers. Ballasted asphalt built up roofs have layers that are not anchored to the decking material but are instead ballasted by covering the layer with gravel. Ballasted asphalt built up roofs are often quicker to install and are more fire retardant than standard asphalt built up roofs.

Alternatively, cold built up roofing does not require hot asphalt and can be sprayed on or applied with a squeegee. Cold built up roofs do not have the toxic fumes that are common with asphalt-based built up roofing and are often used for environmentally sensitive commercial roof projects. Cold built up roofs are not weather dependent and can sometimes perform better than hot built up roofing.

There are numerous advantages to using built up roofing for your commercial roof:

  • Excellent waterproofing protection
  • Ultra-violet protection
  • Low- maintenance
  • Low-life cost maintenance

However, built up commercial roofing has disadvantages as well, such as:

  • Slower installation
  • Hazardous fumes and vapors when installing (hot built up)
  • Higher installation costs
  • Susceptible to wind and water damage

What Our Clients Say

The owner showed up as agreed. We discussed our leak and how best to repair it. It was an easy fix done the same day. Fair cost for the trip out and repair. He also evaluated the roof and made a few suggestions if we want to do preventive repairs. Very nice, personable and reasonable.

They did an excellent job. The team started early in the morning and were working until dusk to complete their work. The owner of the company and his team are very friendly and hard workers. I would definitely recommend them to you.

Always polite, professional and extremely knowledgeable! We had an emergency situation and Fernando did not hesitate to get started helping us. He even drove from Gresham to Beaverton in the snow/ice storm just to make his first appointment. There aren't enough words to express the gratitude my husband and I have Fernando and his crew.

Beaverton Roof Repair

He came quickly within a few days of my call. He was honest about what needed to be done and how we could plan for contingencies. He gave me a solid easy to understand estimate. He took care of getting me on the schedule within a month (other companies were months out). He is a contractor as well as a roofer and believe me that could save you tons of $$ as houses hide damage that you can't see until the roof is off and you want the same crew who is already there to be able to keep on working rather than having to stop and start again finding a licensed contractor. He was great about not hiding costs and what he quoted was what i paid. He brought a trailer and was pretty good about cleanup. He went over my property with a magnet rake and there was minimal mess left over when he was done. Fernando was great! Personable, flexible easy to talk to and not talking down to me or trying to sell me crap I didn't need. I am proud to recommend Forest Roofing. If you are worried about your roof there is no one better to provide class A service.

Excellent. Crew was on time and very efficient. They were always very courteous and went out of their way to accommodate. Fernando was always very professional and did what he said he was going to do.

Craig Allen

Fernando is a delight to work with. He he thorough and explained to us all the problem areas on our roof. One of the many things we appreciate about Fernando is that he took pictures of problem areas on the roof so we could see for ourselves that the tiles were degrading, we had a small hole in the roof, missing tiles, etc. He also noticed our neighbor's tree was splitting from the top down and I was able to show her the picture warning her of a disaster about to fall on her house (it fell the following day through her roof). Fernando truly cares about his customers and makes sure they receive the best quality work at a fair price. I cannot say enough good things about this man. He has integrity, he's an honest man, and he has been a true blessing to us.

Overall it was a great experience. Fernando was always on time, polite, professional and knowledgeable. Our situation was considered an emergency and he did not hesitate to get to work quickly to make sure we were dry, and safe. We are beyond grateful for what Fernando and his crew at Forest Roofing did for our family!

Forest Roofing team was very professional and guided us step-by-step from day one. The project took about three days as they had mentioned from the time of the estimates.

On the first day, they took out the old roof and tape the water resistant material to the woods to ensure protection of the existing base. They also had all supplies and materials ready and did daily clean up of hazardous materials. On the second day, Forest Roofing team began installing the new roof and checked old vents on top of my house. Finally on the third day, the team finished the second part of the roof and replaced old vents with new ones. At the end, I was able to inspect the project with the team manager for feedback and/or recommendations. The roof installation was pristine and fit to meet the highest roofing standards in the state. There were no over costs or any missing items/details. Everything went according to plan from the beginning and now I have the most amazing roof in the neighborhood!

I also look forward to call them in 30 years for a new one.
