Replacing asphalt shingles using roofer strippers is the easiest way to renovate a roof. Asphalt shingles are one of the most popular materials used for roofing covers because they are relatively inexpensive and quite easy to install. A shingle stripper is needed to replace asphalt shingles when they start showing signs of deterioration such as curling, splitting, and loss of surface granules. Usually, shingle removers are used when nails start to pop out and a significant number of shingles become broken or go missing.
Roofing tools used to remove asphalt shingles can make the tear-off job effortless. But how do you know when to re-shingle your roof on top of existing shingles and when to rip the old ones out? Generally, a second asphalt roof over an original layer is acceptable especially if the new shingles can be set evenly on top of the old ones. If the original coating still shows a smooth nailing surface, you don't need to remove the old shingles with a shingle remover. As long as there are no bulges as a result of installing the new shingles, you can re-shingle your roof on top of existing shingles.
Before considering a re-shingle on top of an existing layer, make sure that there is no decay under the first roof. If there are signs of deterioration, it is best to remove the old shingles using a shovel with teeth. When re-roofing over existing asphalt shingles, contractors usually replace any broken or missing shingles by removing the old ones using roof tear off tools. Otherwise, broken shingles can cause an uneven installation of the new shingles, making your roof very unsightly.
Another issue to consider before adding the extra weight of a second layer of shingles is whether the structure can withstand the added load or not. Roofing contractors can usually see whether the foundations of a house or building can hold another covering of asphalt shingles. Individually, these shingles may seem small enough to be relatively light. But collectively, they amount to a considerable weight that can increase the stresses handled by the structure. If contractors see that a house's posts can give way, they use a roofing shovel to remove the original layer first.
