Tar and Gravel Roofing inWilmington, Leland and Hampstead

In the past, a tar and gravel roofing system, also known as built-up roofing, typically consisted of tar paper. Today’s systems are made up of alternating layers of bitumen reinforced advanced materials that include fiberglass roof membranes. Licensed A Roof Above roofing specialists utilize updated roofing technology for residential or commercial roof installation and also provide skilled tar and gravel roof maintenance and repair.

Tar and Gravel Roof Installation

A Roof Above installs tar and gravel built-up roofing systems using advanced roofing technology that consists of layering high quality tar-saturated paper and liquid with gravel, asphalt, rolled asphalt, or modified bitumen. Layers are “built-up” to reinforce the roofing system and provide exceptional durability. The final layer of the completed roof installation is coated with bitumen (tar) and a layer of gravel to secure the entire system and to provide maximum protection from the sun’s UV rays and impact resistance.

Tar and Gravel Roof Maintenance and Repair

When properly installed and maintained by a qualified roofing professional, a tar and gravel roof provides property owners with a durable and cost effective system with an average lifespan of 20 – 25 years that can be extended with regular maintenance. Over time however, surface gravel may become worn down from wind, sun and weather damage and leaks can become a problem around flashings, chimneys, eaves and roof decking. Our experienced A Roof Above roofing technicians promptly identify any built up roofing problem during a licensed roof inspection followed by qualified repair of roof leaks, gaps and holes. From the metal flashings to sealants, each roof component on both the interior and exterior of your home or business property is carefully evaluated as part of a preventative roof maintenance checkup that also includes practical recommendations for roof safety practices in between inspections. A Roof Above provides detailed price and work estimates prior to carrying out any repairs and customized tar and gravel roof repair to your exact requirements and budget.
