How do you reroof asphalt shingles?
Regarding this, can you put asphalt shingles over asphalt shingles?
The answer is yes, you can lay new roof shingles over old ones. But before we get started, one thing must be clear: adding new roofing over old (sometimes called a "re-roof") is possible only with asphalt shingles (also called "composition shingles").
Additionally, can I reroof my own house? If you absolutely need a new roof to lower your energy bills and keep water and wind out of your house, but you cannot afford it, talk to a professional roofer. Installing a new roof yourself is not encouraged. If you are handy and have some roofing knowledge, then most likely you don't even need to read this article.
Similarly, it is asked, how many layers of shingles can you put on a roof?
What materials do I need to reroof my house?
