Lowcountry Roofing: Quality Mount Pleasant SC Roofer
Does your home need a new roof? If so, you may have a list of questions about the installation process, materials and maintenance. Write your questions down in a notebook as you think of them, so you will remember to ask your Mount Pleasant roofing professional everything you want to know before the installation begins.
One inquiry that many homeowners make before hiring a contractor to install a new roof is whether or not a new layer of shingles can be installed over the existing layer. This can be done in some situations, but you will first need to check with your municipality to make sure this practice complies with local building codes. The major advantage in doing this is the fact that you eliminate the need for removing and disposing of your current shingles. Before your roofing professional agrees to install the new roof over your old roof, he will want to assess the situation to determine if your home’s frame can support the weight of an extra layer of roofing shingles.
Many homeowners wonder if their flat roof is more prone to leaks than a sloping roof. Although a flat or low-sloping roof does not shed water as quickly as a pitched roof, there are plenty of high-quality roofing materials on the market to protect your home from unnecessary leaks.
