Couvreur Sipa 2002 has over 30 years of experience and explicit knowledge of asphalt and gravel roofing and multi-layer roofing.
This type of roofing has been around for a long time. To be effective, it needs to be made of several layers. After several layers of asphalt have been applied to the roof, gravel is spread out over the top layer, completely covering the asphalt (multilayer roofing).
The Benefits of an Asphalt Gravel Roof
This multilayer roofing process (asphalt and gravel roofing) is composed of 4 to 5 layers of black paper, assembled with hot asphalt. The final step is to cover the top layer with about 4 pounds per square foot of crushed stone. This process consists mainly of reducing the wear caused by the sun's rays and reducing contraction and expansion of the asphalt when there are temperature variations.
Professional service is recommended because the thickness of the asphalt, its temperature (which needs to be very high), and weather conditions all influence the final quality of the roof. Among the benefits of contacting one of our professionals at Couvreur Sipa 2002 for your asphalt and gravel roofing is that we have state-of-the-art equipment that guarantees a service that reflects the highest quality standards in the industry. Keep in mind that particular attention is needed for the area around goosenecks and chimneys, wherever the roof meets a wall and any changes in level, to ensure proper watertightness. Sufficient ventilation will prevent your roof from deteriorating too fast. You can rely on us to look after every aspect of installation!
