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.
