Tar and Gravel Roofs

In the past, a tar and gravel roofing system, also known as built-up roofing (or BUR), 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 A1A Roofing & Home Improvement roofing specialists utilize updated roofing technology for residential or commercial roof installation and also provide skilled tar and gravel roof maintenance and repair.

BUR roofs are a fantastic, economical choice for flat roofing systems. BUR roofs are robust, hard-wearing, and safe to walk on. If you need a high-performance roof on a budget, a tar and gravel roof might be the ideal choice for you.

Tar and Gravel Roof Installation

A1A Roofing & Home Improvement 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.

Our roofing installation method is tried and true. We’ve honed our process to be quick, efficient, and minimally disruptive. Although tar and gravel roofs are known to be labor-intensive to install, we’ve developed a sound strategy that reduces redundancies and wait times. When you hire us for BUR roof installation, you can expect a lightning-fast turnaround time.

Plus, in the interest of your complete satisfaction, we’ll work around your schedule and maintain a clean and tidy worksite for your health and safety. If you’d like updates on our work, our project supervisor will gladly provide you with regular reports on our progress, and up to date completion time estimates.

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.

Some common BUR repairs include:

  • Open joints
  • Blisters
  • Undulations or waves
  • Cracks

Thankfully, our roofers are extremely familiar with BUR roofs and can quickly diagnose and restore your roof to like-new condition.

Our experienced A1A Roofing & Home Improvement 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. A1A Roofing & Home Improvement 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.
