Should I have my old Charlotte roof removed before a new one is installed?

While building codes allow for two layers of roofing materials, the short term cost savings you may realize from a temporary “layover” roof is more than offset by the peace of mind you’ll feel by knowing for sure that the integrity of the roof decking and flashing has be checked which if left unaddressed can lead to a leaky roof as well as possible siding damage.

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.
