Roof Replacement Photo Album: Multi-layer Roof Replacement in Stillman Valley, IL
Laying shingles on top of an existing roof can have it's benefits: it's generally cheaper, not as messy, and the job gets done faster. However, any experienced roofer knows that cheap and easy is not the best way to get the job done. Multiple layer roofs have major issues, such as the inability to detect leaks, added weight on the framing, and increased temperatures. This is why when Tom F. of Stillman Valley gave My-Pros a call. Tom had multiple layers of shingles on his home and knew that in order to properly protect his home, he needed to get the shingles removed and new shingles installed properly.
Our crew got to work tearing off the existing layers of shingles. Once all the shingles were removed, they installed a synthetic ice and water shield to protect the plywood underneath the shingles. Tom choose CertainTeed Landmark shingles in the color Colonial Slate, which our crew quickly and expertly installed. This roof was completed in just one day and looks beautiful! Tom now has a protective single layer of shingles that will last for many years to come.
Tom's shingles are visibly damaged and in need of replacement.

Apart from the visible damage, since there are multiple layers, there may be undetected leaks.
Though it is quick and cheap to lay shingles on top of one another, it is not the proper way to replace a roof.
