Tar & Gravel Roofing in Regina, SK

Tar and Gravel Roofing

For low-pitched or flat roofs, the most common original roofing material is tar and gravel. A tar and gravel roof consists of layers of asphalt and tar paper (or newer, more sophisticated materials) adhered with applications of molten asphalt. The laminated layers get a top layer of gravel, some of which becomes embedded in the hot asphalt, and some of which lays loose on the surface of the roof. The gravel layer shields the asphalt from damaging effect of sun exposure, and provides a nice finished appearance.
