Replacement vs. Repair
Many homeowners are often unsure whether they need to replace their current roof, or repair it. Our expert team will come out and do a free inspection that will provide you with our recommendations for which option may best suit your needs.
We often get the question, “can we lay a new shingle roof over a pre-existing shingle roof?” In the past, this practice was fairly commonplace. However, this practice no longer meets building codes in some areas and an entire removal of the first roof is required. In situations where a second layer of roofing is allowed, there are several things to consider before making that decision.
Of course, layering the roofing systems costs less, can be completed more quickly, and produces less waste that needs to be disposed of. However, there are several serious arguments against layering roofing systems.
The most serious issue with layering the shingles is that the roofing materials can become too heavy for the roof framing to support. This can cause structural problems and is especially concerning for older homes. Another reason laying shingles over an existing roof can be problematic is that it perpetuates problems that already exist with surface irregularities. The result can be a less attractive and effective roofing system. It is important to discuss the pros and cons of tearing off the existing roofing system and replacing it with a new one and layering a new roofing system over the old one with qualified and skilled roofers.
