Durable Tar & Gravel Roofs in Edgewater, FL

Gravel roofTwo of the oldest materials used in constructing a roof are tar and gravel. This type of roof is often found on homes with a low pitch  to the roof.  At G & W Roofing and Sheet Metal Inc near Daytona Beach, we have been repairing and replacing tar and gravel roofing for 3 decades. We work with insurance claims, which takes pressure off you.

A tar and gravel roof is also called a built-up roof. First, there are 3 to 5 layers of an asphalt sheet base, tar and roofing felt. Once this material is laid down, another layer of bitumen covers the bottom layers. This is kind of like tar, and it’s very dark. The top layer of this roof is usually a light-colored gravel. Using a light color helps to reflect the sunlight, keeping your home cooler. The gravel also protects the bottom layers against water damage. Once installed, your home is well protected.

Expert Installation, Repair, & Replacement

A tar and gravel roof lasts 10 to 20 years with good maintenance. It’s a very affordable material, but it does require a good draining system to prevent water damage. Tar and gravel roofs are traditional. If you have an older home and want to retain its style, this type of roof is a good option.
