Re-roof over tar/gravel

Posted by Philip Riley on July 14th, 1997 07:28 PM

I am planning on reroofing with architectural style fiberglass shingles on a 3/12 pitch. The existing roofing is tar/gravel. I tried to remove a section of
this, unfortunately it was installed with the first layer of felt adhered to the sheathing with tar. Needless to say, it is very difficult to remove. I would
like to know if I can install shingles over this, with any special precautions I should take, or for any advice on how to remove the existing roof.
Thank you.
