needs immediate attention when the gravel begins to separate from the asphalt. You can tell this is occurring when you see a sandy residue on the surface and it appears muddy or dirt like when scraped under your shoe.If you have a tar and gravel roof and are considering adding a new layer, make sure you find out first how many layers are already in place. Each layer weighs about 750 lbs. per 100 square feet. In downtown areas or older city neighborhoods, it is not uncommon to find five layers on a roof or about two tons of material per square (10×10 area)  and the roof may not be able to take on the weight of another layer. Sooner or later, the old roofing has to be removed, usually by hand because access issues or the size of the roof preclude the use of machinery.
