Asphalt and Gravel Roofing: A Quality, Budget-Friendly Solution

An asphalt and gravel roof is made of several layers of felt paper embedded with asphalt and gravel, which are uniformly placed to form an effective barrier against heat, cold and UV rays. The finishing gravel is offered in white, which reflects the sun’s rays to help combat heat islands in urban areas. This multilayer coating - the least expensive on the market - offers several other advantages:

  • Ideal for industrial, commercial and residential flat roofs
  • Weather and damage resistant
  • Easy maintenance
  • Durability up to 25 years
  • Superior acoustic soundproofing
  • Fire resistant
  • Excellent value for your money

Professional Maintenance: The Best Way to Extend the Life of Your Asphalt and Gravel Roof

Any roofing specialist will confirm that you can extend the durability of your flat asphalt and gravel roof up to 25 years if you entrust its annual maintenance to a professional team. The maintenance work is as follows:

  • Repairing cracks with liquid asphalt
  • Repositioning gravel
  • Adding gravel

Roofing experts will also check to make sure the layers of felt paper are well covered with gravel chips to prevent the felt sheets from drying out in the sun. This simple maintenance protects your roof from premature wear and ensures optimal longevity.
