Changing from a shingle roof to a tile roof might pose a few challenges, but it’s not typically that hard. In most cases, however, you will want to check and see if there are any regulations in your home area that might prevent your roofers from using such means – or at least require them to follow certain guidelines while making the change from shingle to tile – especially when you don’t want the old roof to be removed. While restrictions usually won’t apply, it’s better to be safe than to run into later complications once the project was already completed.
That being said, there are two ways to change from a shingle roof to a tile roof. One is to simply lay a new underlayment over the shingles and then proceed to install the tile roof on top. This is usually the quicker version, as it doesn’t involve actually tearing down the old roof. The more complicated version involves removing the old shingles and then adjusting, repairing or replacing the underlayment, so it can be suitable for the installation of the tiles. While this process is not too difficult, you will want an experienced Emhurst roofing team to handle it, since you definitely won’t want any unexpected surprises to come up and ruin your project.
