Built-Up Felt Roofing
Built-Up Felt Roofing (BUFR) refers to traditional, multi-layer waterproofing systems fabricated from reinforced bituminous membranes. A typical ‘warm roof’ system would incorporate a bituminous vapour control layer, thermal insulation and two-layers of waterproofing on top. Underlays are normally sand surfaced, whereas cap sheets have an aesthetically pleasing mineral finish offering enhanced protection against UV.
Built-Up Felt Roofing is a tried and tested method of waterproofing roofs. In addition, modern BUFR systems incorporate polymer modification within the membranes, offering enhanced temperature stability and long term performance. BUFR systems are particularly suited to refurbishment projects and have been used successfully on countless schools, hospitals and other buildings nationwide.
