In reply to Roofing shingles over shingles ? by Paul on February 18th, 2002 04:29 AM [Go to top of thread]

But if this were my house I would strip off the old shingles. If your house requires say, 30 square, you would be adding approximately 9000 pounds to the weight of your roof. This could be enough to cause additional settling and possibly cause cracking on interior walls.
$2000 sounds high for stripping off the old. 3 men with stripping shovels should easilly strip the entire roof in 4 hours. Their labor plus the cost of a dumpster and dumping fees should be less than $1000. Way less.
So much for my 2 cents..
Good Luck!
