With 35 year veteran Rejean Bellanger, leading the team, Roof Star has explicit knowledge in asphalt and gravel roofing and multi-layer roofing.

This type of coating has been used for a long time and must be composed of several layers to ensure the effectiveness of the product. After several layers of asphalt applied on the roof, the gravel composes the last layer completely covering the bitumen (multilayer roofing).

The benefits of a gravel asphalt roof

  • Increased durability (approximately 15 years) with annual maintenance
  • Easily repairable
  • Low cost

Technical characteristics

This multilayer roofing process (asphalt and gravel roofing) is composed of 4 to 5 layers of black paper, assembled with hot bitumen. The next step is to cover it 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 the contraction of the asphalt when there are large temperature variations.

Using the services of a professional is highly recommended because asphalt thickness as well as its high temperature and atmospheric conditions are all criteria influencing the final quality of the roof. Here are the benefits of contacting one of our professionals at Roof Star for your asphalt and gravel roofing, we have state-of-the-art equipment that guarantees a service that reflects the highest quality standards in the industry. Remember that goosenecks, chimneys, walls and different gradients of the cover require particular vigilance, since it is necessary to ensure a good waterproofness of the roof asphalt and crushed stone. Proper ventilation will prevent you from deteriorating your coverage too fast. Trust us with your project.
