Perhaps the most overlooked benefit of a tar and gravel roofing is that it can continue to save you and your family hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars every year on energy bills. Once properly installed, as all J&J Northwoods Construction Inc.’s tar and gravel roofs are, this added benefit can end up reducing your heating and cooling costs dramatically. The simple fact of the matter is that two inches of spray foam under the tar roof can reduce the interior temperature of your home by as much as ten degrees in summer months.
Tar and Gravel Roof Maintenance
If you are looking for a tar and gravel roofing service that will stand the test of time it is necessary to guarantee that you undertake the proper maintenance work. A quick and easy way of strengthening the longevity and durability of your home’s roof is by applying a new acrylic ‘cool roof’ coating that can further weatherproof your tar and gravel roof. Similarly, if your tar and gravel roof is beginning to show signs of wear and tear then this can be easily fixed by patching the roofing membrane. However, while this is a relatively straight-forward task to complete, the fact of the matter is that if the repair work isn’t carried out correctly then it is likely that leaks may re-occur again and again. Unfortunately, the more repair works you need undertaken on your home, the less structural integrity the roof possesses. As a general rule of thumb, we suggest that if over 25% of your home’s roof has been repaired or needs repairs, then it is probably time for a replacement to take place. If you are uncertain of the standard of your roof then a quick walk along its surface to see how it feels under your feet should help in this respect. Sings for depressions, cracking, discoloration and deteriorated surfaces can provide a clearer idea on this issue.
