What is a roof recover?
Tuesday, May 4, 2021
A “roof recover” is when an existing roof remains in place and a new roof is applied on top of it. This is also called a “roof-over." Although it is usually done with an asphalt shingle roof, the new roof can be any roofing material. To learn more, see our blog posts Does a roof with multiple layers of shingles last longer? and How can I tell if a roof has more than one layer of shingles? and How many layers of roofing are allowed on a home? and Can I put a new asphalt shingle roof over an existing shingle roof on a manufactured/mobile home?
