That’s one of the reasons why our customers continue to recommend us again and again.

Most roofing experts believe that the life of your new roof will be reduced by as much as 20% if it is installed on top of an existing roof. In addition, tearing off the existing materials gives us the most assurance that the underlying surface has the best integrity possible to prevent leaks well into the future.
