Commercial Coating Pros specializes in restoring, refurbishing and rejuvenating BUR tar and gravel systems.

Many years ago building engineers designed commercial, industrial and institutional roofing systems to be built-up (BUR) with a composition of materials for a stronger waterproofing system. One type system is a BUR tar and gravel system.

A roofing system that is built up using tar and gravel generally has a vapor retarder, polyisocyanurate insulation, a cover board, inter plies with asphalt and gravel stone. Today, building practices have changed and these types of roofing systems are no longer an acceptable installation. More and more building owners are faced with either tearing off these systems or refurbishing them because insurance companies will not insure them or water damage has pushed the owner to the point of making the costly replacement.

Commercial Coating Pros specializes in restoring, refurbishing and rejuvenating BUR tar and gravel systems using state-of-the-art materials from leading manufacturers.

Our systematic approach to refurbishing these types of roofing systems is simple.

Our process to restore tar & gravel roofs is a step-by-step process:

  • We de-gravel all of the loose gravel on the existing roof system and haul it away to be recycled.
  • We power wash the existing roof and remove any loosely embedded gravel, dirt and debris from the existing roof deck.
  • We make any necessary decking repairs and replace any necessary metal flashing or coping.
  • We design the foam application to refurbish the existing flat roof system or for a "tapered" system that will provide a slope for removing any ponding or standing water. Spray Polyurethane Foam is a closed-cell application that provides waterproofing and additional roof insulation.
  • We spray apply a top-coat of a high solid, industrial grade silicone elastomeric over the foam to protect the foam from harmful UV and as a monolithic, seamless two-layer waterproofing system.
