When you are deciding on getting a new roof, you have a couple options. To avoid a mess and spend less, people often consider just having a Hillsborough roofer shingle over the old eroded roof. The other option is just to get a full replacement. Although the first option seems better off the bat, it isn’t the wisest choice to make. There could be leaks and wood damage that you don’t even know about. Once you just shingle over your roof and problems arrive, you’ll end up paying way more than you would have if you had just gotten a full roof replacement. Also, having two shingle layers on your roof make it more weight for your roof deck to hold up, make your roof absorb more heat which erodes it faster, allows a place for algae and bacteria to thrive between layers. Between short term and long term problems that can and will arise, any good Hillsborough roofing contractor would agree that it would be a much better choice to get your roof replaced rather than re-layered.
