Sloped Tar and Gravel Convrsions

Residential Sloped Tar and Gravel Conversion

A residential tar and gravel roof can be converted to asphalt in two different ways.

The first is to use the existing gutter and curbing system by installing a flat roofing material on the eaves, with a peel and stuck underlay for the remainder of the roof. The shingles can then be installed above the eave system, allowing any pooling water access to drains.

The second would be to tear the curbing system off, using a peel and stick underlay on the entire roof, and shingling as would be typical. This will require a new continuous gutter to take the place of the old flat roofing system and drain.
