Dallas, Texas (Press Release – March 20, 2012) – Alpine Roofing Construction has recommended ideas for existing residential roofs.
Having a fresh roof installed on home is supposed to be an expensive project. It is normal for a homeowner to want to save money on roof replacement projects. However, adding another layer of shingles over an existing one is never a good idea. It will only save a small amount, and could cost a lot more in the near future.
The highest expense in a roof replacement is the materials that are being used. Labor is the next largest expense. Most of the labor expense comes from the installation process, so it is impossible to save money. One problem with leaving the current roofing system in place is the additional weight that will be added when installing a new roofing system on top of it. Asphalt shingles are heavy, walls and roof structure may have a hard time handling the additional weight of a second layer.
Asphalt shingles are designed to lay flat over a felt underlayment. Shingles are designed to take shape of the surface beneath them. When installed on a smooth surface, the roof will look smooth with even lines. When installing a new layer of shingles over an existing one, roof will look lumpy and uneven. If one decides to install shingles over a bumpy surface, like the existing shingles, they will not properly adhere. They will be more likely to sustain wind damage, which will lead to high roof repair costs in the future! The decking under the shingles should be properly evaluated when one have your roof replaced.
