Affordable Roofing by John Cadwell, Inc. offers a cost effective option to roof replacement. A Roof Over is the application of new metal or new shingles over the existing roof system.
So, roof replacement may not be the only option to your roofing problem after all. Hence, putting a roof on top of a roof; adding another layer of shingles or metal over an existing roof could be your best solution.
Types of Roofs that may Qualify
> Only has one shingle roof already on top
> No curling of roof shingles
> Doesn’t have extensive flashing deterioration
> Doesn’t have extensive roof damage
> The deck must not be soft or spongy
Roof Over Information
The roof may require a few minor repairs but overall it must have smooth shingles, a sound roof deck and intact roof flashing.
When done correctly and the conditions are right, new shingles or metal installed over an existing roof can look as good and be as durable as a “new” roof installed directly on the sheathing and done for less than a roof replacement.
Roof Over Importance
Not all roofing company’s perform a roof over. Selecting the appropriate type of materials and proper installation of materials to minimize the roughness; all takes a skill set most roofing companies, just can’t perform with their inexperienced staff.
Some roofing companies that offer Roof Over’s, may only offer a “Bridging” for their shingle over shingle roofs. “Bridging” is only recommend for metal over shingles. “Nesting” is the preferred method for a shingle over shingle application.
Another reason you should consider us is that most roofing companies do not have the skilled staff to perform this method. Therefore, they would rather offer roof replacements which also happens to be the more expensive option.
