(Tar and Gravel)
Built-up roofing systems have a long record of strength and durability in Utah. A built-up roof consists of multiple plies of roofing felts adhered together with hot asphalt. Gravel is often embedded in hot asphalt as a surface coating to protect the finished roof system. Many of the problems needing a built-up roof repair or replacement occur because of improper installation, something you won’t experience when you choose American Roofing Company.
We’ve been installing built-up roofing since 1954; many of those roofs have performed well for 25 years or longer. Our experienced team can advise you if this type of roofing is a good option for your home or commercial building.
What Is Built-Up Roofing?
Built-up roofing is a durable flat roof system. These types of roofs are water-resistant and designed to last. With adequate drainage, a properly installed 4-ply or 3-ply built-up roof system has a life expectancy of 20 plus years. Here at American Roofing Company, you can expect the kind of quality installation that will allow your new roof to last you many years to come.
