Since tar and gravel was first discovered as a method of roofing, it has been the go-to flat roof  for decades. A tar and gravel roof consists of multiple layers of bitumen and tar.  May 7, 2014: Crew Arrives On-Site for Repairs.  The crew arrives on-site get set up and do a walk around with the homeowner. The homeowner had told me that his roof was leaking and he had tried to fix it himself.  The roof was still leaking. Also, around the back side edge, the metal was starting to lift. I fixed three spots total - one was quite large - 10 ft. x 3 ft. The other leak location was where the metal was lifting, measured at 1 ft. x 8 ft. I refastened the metal and put a gum patch over top.

To address the first leak location, roofing paper was applied over the membrane. We applied new tar over each layer, building up the roof over each new piece of paper.
