About six weeks ago we had our roof in the back of the house torn down to the rafters (?) and a new roof put on by a supposedly reputable roofing company. This part of the roof is flat (although it has a very slight slope to it). They claimed the best roofing material for that kind of roof was rolled roofing with a blowtorch put to it. However, now there is a ton of loose "gravel" from the roofing material; it is getting into the gutters and also just lying around on the roof waiting to be washed into the gutters. I was on the roof this weekend sweeping up leaves and also swept up a ton of this loose gravel. Is this normal? Is there some kind of coating I can put on the roof to make the gravel stick? I don't want the roof to come apart after it's just been installed. I paid a ton of money for the roof. Thanks.

Completely normal as there is always loose granules with any applied new roof.

If the granules start to expose raw tar surface, you have something to be concerned about.

But what you see at this moment is perfectly normal.

Thank you so very much for your reply. It is a relief to hear that it is normal. We have had some rain lately, about every week, so maybe that has helped loosen the "gravel"; I don't know.
