Q: Do you use staples or nails?

A: We never use staples. Building codes and manufacturers’ recommend using nails when installing shingle roofs. Additionally, we use nails for the base sheet on flat roof installations.

Q: My roof has only 1 layer on it. Can I lay over the existing shingles?

A: Yes, but it depends on the condition of your existing roof and whether it was properly  installed. If the existing layer was not laid straight or the shingles have begun to cup over time, then your new layer may be bumpy or uneven. In addition, not tearing off the existing layer makes it impossible to check the roof deck for heat damage, rot or loose decking. Damaged decking can prevent the wood from laying flat, which can shorten the life of your new roof. Therefore, adding another layer might not be the most cost effective decision in the long run.
