Tar and Gravel Roof Conversion
Elastoflex roofing is a 2-ply roll-on roof system that we can install to replace your old tar and gravel roof. South Peak Roofing & Exteriors can convert your old tar and gravel roof with ease. We can apply the Elastoflex to low-slope roofs after the removal of the tar and gravel. It comes with a 20-year warranty and stands up long term to Calgary’s finicky fast-changing weather conditions. We can provide you with the following Elastoflex colours.

Elastoflex is often comparable with 2-ply granulated torch roofing. However, it does have its differences. When heating the seams on Elastoflex, they are heat welded rather than torched. This creates a more effective seal than that of torch roofing. It is also a safer method for the home and provides a cleaner application.
LOW SLOPE SHINGLES
Low slope roofs with a pitch of 2/12 can also be warrantied with the installation of high wind shingles. We don’t recommend using singles on a low slope if the pitch is lower than 2/12. Typically, on a low slope roof with a pitch of 2/12 or less, you use tar and gravel. Though, shingles with a high wind rating can be a very economical option for their durability, price and ease of application. For any roof with a slope less than 3/12, it requires 2 layers of synthetic paper or a full ice/water membrane underneath the shingles to ensure no leaks occur.
