What would you choose- layering or stripping off the old roofing system?
Another important question that now rises is should you tear off your old roofing system or consider a second layering? Whatever you choose, we make sure to sit with you to weigh the pros and cons carefully before getting on with the work. Interestingly, due to safety reasons son e regions in America has banned the practice of second layering. If you ask us, we will say that complete tear-off of the previous roofing system poses as a safer option.
