Hot Tar Roofing

Hot Tar Roofing Contractors

LoveRain Roofing Company is Austin’s premier hot tar roofing repair experts in Central Texas.  Hot tar roofs also referred to as “tar and gravel” or as we say in the industry “built-up roofs”, are some of the best roofs built in the past. They are very redundant and in many cases can be repaired if leaking or we can do a full restoration to extend their usable life.

Hot tar roofing or built-up roofing, is designed by layering rolled out fiberglass based materials and hot tar asphalt. The layering process of asphalt-impregnated rolls of fiberglass and hot tar will bond together into one cohesive roof that is effective, affordable and durable under the heat of the Texas Hill Country.

Hot Tar Roofing Systems

Hot Tar roofing is a layering effect that involves the combination of materials to create a long-lasting, water-resistant roof. This type of roofing is regarded by some commercial and industrial building owners as one of the most durable flat roofing solutions. When a professional roofing contractor installs a built-up roof correctly and performs regular maintenance, it can last 15 to 25 years. When it comes to industrial and commercial buildings in Austin, TX, 2-ply, 3-ply, and 4-ply are common applications. This roofing system can be installed in a variety of depths to meet a variety of roofing requirements and budgets.

Advantages of a Hot Tar Roof

Bitumen roofs are also very long-lasting. Because of their high tensile strength, they are less likely to develop the types of cracks that other flat and membrane roofs are known for. They are also fire, wind, and hail resistant, so they are unlikely to be damaged in the event of a storm.

Long Lasting Durability

Each fiberglass reinforced layer offers reinforcement due to the multiple layers combined and sandwiched between the layers of water-resistant asphalt creating a longer lasting hot tar roof.

Limited Roof Movement

All roofing materials expand and contract during intense heat and cooling conditions that can effect a roof. With a hot tar roof, movement is limited due to that high tensile strength of the 200 lbs./sq inch. Fracturing of a hot tar roof/built up roof are reduce due to the layering procedures, therefore increasing the overall life of roof.

Superior Water Resistance

A single ply roof offers limited prevention of potential leaking. A multiple-layered hot tar roof of fiberglass and hot tar offers up to five times greater water resisting barriers.

Easier installation

Hot tar roofing layer fusing are easier to install than single ply roofing materials. Single ply roofing offers ballast and fasteners since they are laid loosely.
