Take suggestion for shingle type – from Our Roofers, Edison
It is your house and you can install whatever you want. But, you have to make sure that those installations last long, if not forever. Our roofers have been working with different structures and they know better so I suggest, take their advice.
Take the old roof layer down if you are installing new
Not to tear down the older one may be an easy option. You will spend less time in adding new layer without taking it out. Think again. Your foundation walls were not built for supporting multiple layer or roofs.
Ensure your Roofers Edison install the moisture barriers
Sometimes, the moisture barriers are not properly installed which causes the leakage problems. During heavy rain or snow, the moisture gets past the shingles and your attic gets affected. Make sure that old barriers are not used for your new installation.
Nailing standard compliance with the shingle manufacturer:
Have you seen or faced the problem of shingles falling off? This is caused by improper nailing of shingles. Loose or shifted shingles are also caused by inadequate or improper nailing. You can talk about the nails or fasteners and their standards with our roofing experts.
