Some NJ homeowners need to remove their old roof before installing a new one but there are times when it could make good sense to install a new roof over your existing one. Not only is this a great way to re-roof your house from a cost perspective but it’s also fast and requires minimal clean-up. Not all homes are good candidates for this type of re-roofing. It’s important to work with a skilled roofing contractor to determine whether or not this is a viable option for you.
Is your house a good candidate for a reroof overlay? If your house is less than 25 years old and the existing shingles are smooth and in fairly good condition, you could be a good candidate for a roof overlay. In New Jersey, you can add up to two total roof layers. It’s important to only do this type of roof installation if your contractor advises it. Another factor to consider is whether or not the home has adequate ventilation. Inadequate ventilation could result in damage to plywood.
A skilled roofing contractor can identify whether or not your roof makes a good candidate for this type of scenario. A good roof overlay will be smooth and the former layer of shingles should be virtually undetectable. Feel free to ask us for two separate quotes. Ask for one quote for a roof overlay and the other for a tear off of your old roof and installation of your new roof. This way, you can make an educated decision based on all of your options. We can also help with skylight installation and replacement of gutters and downspouts as well.
Not all roofing contractors are equal. Some will tell you what you want to hear, rather than the truth. Some will tell you that you need much more extensive repairs than is necessary.

A roof inspection refers to having professionals examine your roof. This process can help you determine whether your roof needs repairs or a replacement, what sorts of repairs are required, whether or not your roof has adequate ventilation, and what costs might be involved in repairs or re-roofing.
How do I obtain a roof inspection?
Some roofing contractors charge a fee for a roof inspection, which can help you determine whether or not work needs to be done as well as help you determine potential options and costs. The Fortified Roofing Company offers free roof inspections to potential customers. Whether you want work done now or in the future, Fortified Roofing will carefully examine your shingles, chimney, gutters, and other areas of the roof to determine if work needs to be done.

I had my roof replaced by Fortified Roofing and they did an amazing job. I’m really happy with the service and price.
John and his people done a wonderful work at my house. All the work completed is at very high standards with reasonable cost. They completed Facia, Soffits and roof at my house. I would definitely recommend Fortified Roofing Ewing for the services they offer.
