Our Process | Tar & Gravel Roof

The tar and gravel roof membrane is a good solution for hot and dry climates. Compared to shingles, which use the pitch of the roof to protect it from moisture, the tar and gravel roofing surface uses hat tar and roofing felt to seal the roof. Built up roofs can last anywhere from 10-20 years depending on the initial installation and ensuring debris is removed after storms. The layer of crushed rock functions to hold the roofing material down and minimize damage from the strong New Mexico sun.

Tar and gravel roofing is typically one of the most affordable options to explore. Tar and gravel can be very heavy and may not be suitable for all homes. Also, depending on climate, the gravel may clog your gutters and cause flooding on the roof. Key to maintaining a healthy tar and gravel roof is regular maintenance. If you do that, we’ve seen roofs last as long as 40 years. It’s also known for being an incredible fire retardant.
