If you’re considering installing new roofs on your house, you probably already know that you need to have at least one type of roof in place before you install anything else. So, how does the installation of a new roof differ from the installation of the old roof? And what types of roofs are best for your house? That’s the question that we’ll address in this article.
To answer the first question, installing a new roof is usually different than the installation of an old one. The reason is that new roofs must include a waterproof layer on top of asphalt or rubber roofing material, while old roofs were often made with tiles and other types of roofing material. The second thing that must be understood before you begin is this: installing new roof over existing (or sometimes referred to as “re-roofs”) is possible with either asphalt or composition shingle (also referred to as “paver shingled” roofing). You cannot do this with slate or wood, for instance, so you should never mix these materials with other materials.
When it comes to new roofs, the biggest difference between the two kinds of roofing materials is that asphalt requires very little maintenance, whereas composition shingle requires regular cleaning. Asphalt shingle comes in a variety of colors, which allow it to blend with any color scheme. Composition shingle is also used for both residential and commercial use, though commercial use can usually only be purchased through manufacturers or roofing companies that are licensed to sell this type of roofing material.
Asphalt roofing is more expensive than composition shingle because it requires more preparation before you install it, but it can last longer, especially if you choose an asphalt-based product. Also, the installation and maintenance of asphalt roofing are relatively easy. Asphalt roofing products such as asphalt tar or asphalt shingle do not require any special tools or equipment for installation and are relatively easy to remove or dispose of.
There are a few considerations when choosing between the two types of roofs. First of all, you must decide if your new roof will fit on top of the existing roof, if not, then you have two options: either add a shingle overlay to the existing roof or move the existing roof to the side to create a new slant, or build a new slanting roof that will fit over the existing roof. Depending on where you put the new roof, make sure that the area around the perimeter of the new roof is smooth so that you don’t dig into the shingle during installation.
While the installation of new roofs is quite similar to the installation of old ones, there are a few differences that you should understand before starting your project. First off, keep in mind that the new roof is going to be placed against a surface that is different from the surface underneath. So, in addition to having to be very careful to keep the edges smooth, make sure that the surface is smooth as well. Also, you should make sure that the entire area around the perimeter of the new roof is smooth because if it is rough, it could damage the new asphalt roofing material. It is also important to prepare the surface before beginning the project, for it will be exposed to moisture and rain.
