Built-up Roof Systems

A built-up roof (BUR) membrane is a continuous, semi-flexible roof membrane system consisting of multiple layers of felts, fabrics, or mats assembled in place with alternate layers of bitumen (asphalt). Surfacing consists of a mineral aggregate surfacing (gravel), bitumous emulsion and top coating, or a granule-surfaced cap sheet. In some instances, a built-up membrane system is used as the base plies beneath a modified bitumen membrane system. Built up roofs systems have stood the test of time and are still a very popular choice among roofing specifiers and professionals.

Systems Installed: Insulated and non-insulated, hot mopped and cold adhesive applied systems, modified asphalt systems, gravel, mineral surface and smooth surface roofs, related sheet metal and accessories.

Warranties: Manufacturer material and labor warranties up to 25 Years

Modified Bitumen Roof Systems

Polymer-modified bitumen’s, also known as asphalt, were developed in Europe in the mid 1960s and have been used in North America since about 1975. Polymer-modified roof membranes are composed of reinforcing materials such as, polyester, glass-fiber or both. These materials serve as the carriers for the hot-polymer-modified bitumen (asphalt) as it is manufactured into a roll material.

There are two types of polymer-modified asphalts: Atactic Polypropylene Polymer (APP) and Styrene Butadiene Styrene Polymer (SBS). Generally, APP polymers give the material a “plasticized” nature and SBS polymers give the material a “rubberized” nature. Roofing with polymer-modified bituminous materials is largely similar to built-up roofing in that the roll materials are used in redundant manners to effectively build up a durable, multi-ply roof membrane.

Systems Installed: Insulated and non-insulated, APP and SBS modified bitumen systems, hot mopped, cold adhesive, self adhering, mechanical and torch applied systems, mineral surface and smooth surface roofs, related sheet metal and accessories.

Single Ply Roof Systems

Single ply membranes are flexible sheet materials that are used in one-ply or one-layer configurations as low-slope roof membranes. There exist two types of membranes: Thermoset roof membranes (EPDM, CSPE, PIB) and Thermoplastic roof membranes (PVC, TPO, KEE). In laymen’s terms, this means the Thermoset roof membrane is cured and the Thermoplastic roof membrane’s physical characteristics allow it to repeatedly soften when heated and harden when cooled. Thermoset roof membranes are seamed or bonded to like materials with adhesives and tapes, while the thermoplastic roof membranes are typically seamed by heat-welding. Single ply membranes are very popular commercial roof systems due to their cost effective nature and the fact most are considered cool roof systems.

Systems Installed: Insulated and non-insulated, fully adhered, ballasted and mechanically
fastened EPDM, TPO and PVC single ply roof systems, cool roof systems and coatings,
related sheet metal and accessories.

Green Roof Systems

The NRCA Roofing and Waterproofing Manual describes a GREEN roof as an area of planting or landscaping installed on a waterproof substrate at any building level, including the roof level, that is separated from the ground underneath it by a man made structure. However the discussion about GREEN roof systems brings about different reactions from different people. To some GREEN means roofs with plant (vegetation) systems incorporated into them. To others GREEN means contributing to our environment and the conservation of energy Biscayne, we believe that GREEN is a way of thinking; Biscayne is a member of the U.S. Green Building Council and all of our employees our committed to the environment we live in.

PMMA Fluid Applied  Roof Systems

The Seam Free PMMA Liquid Membrane and Flashing System consists of a two component, fast-curing, polymethyl-methacrylate (PMMA) resin and a non-woven, chopped strand fabric reinforcement. The system provides an elastomeric, monolithic roofing and waterproofing membrane ideal for plaza decks, balconies, garden roofs, or as a stand-alone membrane. SeamFree PMMA is ideal for small irregular shaped roofs or for roofs with many penetrations. In addition to paving tiles, pedestal systems, and garden roofs, SeamFree PMMA can also be surfaced with a variety of other aggregates, including roofing granules, and white or other roof coatings.

Systems Installed: Insulated and non-insulated systems, garden roofing systems surfaced with live plants and vegetation, protected membrane systems, cool roof systems, cool deck coatings, Energy star compliant systems, LEED certified systems..
