Tar Roofing in Los Angeles

In the past, a tar roofing system, also known as built-up roofing, typically consisted of tar paper. Today’s systems are made up of alternating layers of bitumen reinforced advanced materials that include fiberglass roof membranes. Licensed A1 American Roofing roofing specialists utilize updated roofing technology for residential or commercial roof installation and also provide skilled tar roof maintenance and repair.

Tar Roof Installation

A1 American Roofing installs tar built-up roofing systems using advanced roofing technology that consists of layering high quality tar-saturated paper and liquid with asphalt, rolled asphalt, or modified bitumen. Layers are “built-up” to reinforce the roofing system and provide exceptional durability. The final layer of the completed roof installation is coated with bitumen (tar) to secure the entire system and to provide maximum protection from the sun’s UV rays and impact resistance.
