True
Repair of Blisters on BUR Systems
Deciding whether to cut out and remove, patch over to reinforce, or simply monitor blisters is a judgment call.
 In general, it may be preferable to leave them undisturbed. Some characteristics that may determine the need to repair blisters are:

    Excessive loss of gravel or surfacing
    Membrane deterioration
    Blisters in laps that have reduced lap coverage
    Blisters that have breaks
    Blisters that have fatigue cracking
    Blisters that occur in areas of high traffic such as the installation of solar panels

Each roofing company deals with blisters according to their own internal policies. It is a judgement call whether to cut out a blister, apply a patch over it, or leave it be. These are the main concerns that affect the decision to repair a blister:

    Do the blisters have cracks or holes?
    Is the roof surfacing or gravel significantly missing?
    Is a blister in an area that is walked on a lot?
    Are lap blisters reducing protection?
    How much has the membrane deteriorated?
