When starting a re-roofing project, it’s always nice to begin with a fresh new slate. Re-roofing doesn’t just include putting down new materials, there is a stripping process required before the actual re-roofing begins. Stripping is the removal of one or more layers on your roof.
Some homeowners have tried to save money by re-roofing over existing materials. Unfortunately they have discovered too late that preventable roof damage had begun and that the manufacturers warranty had been voided. With heat and the weight of the extra layers, the new shingles assume the texture of the old layers beneath them and lose the crisp new look they would have had.
Peace of Mind Before Re-Roofing
If you intend on staying in your home and want peace of mind, it would be a good idea to consider stripping your roof of the old materials. Stripping off the old materials can allow you to see if there is any damage done to the underlying roof sheathing. Taking this step could prevent future problems from occurring. Discovering any potential roof damage early on can prevent you from costly repairs that could have been avoided in the first place. If you make the decision to move ahead with stripping, there is no need to worry about any messy clean-up, since Taves Roofing services include trailer garbage removal.
