What is an over roof?

An over-roof is normally chosen when there is an issue with the existing roof. An over roof is a new roof installed over the top of an existing one. A structural surveyor needs to be employed to calculate if the existing frame will take the loading of the new roof.

Can you roof over an existing roof?

Yes, you can roof over an existing roof. However, this is subject to structural survey. To over-roof will largely depend on the condition of the existing roof and its structural integrity. For instance, if a serious moisture issue is found, this will need to be addressed first. Likewise, your existing frame will need to be able to take the additional load of your over roof, which can only be calculated by a structural surveyor.

Can you put a new roof over an asbestos roof?

Asbestos roofs can be over-clad. This needs to be done by specialist asbestos roofing contractors though because if disrupted, asbestos releases harmful fibres.

What are the benefits of over roofing?

By going down the over roofing route, you have a new roof over the existing one without disrupting building occupants. Furthermore, additional insulation can be installed to the void to increase the U value of the unit. Finally, gutter capacity can be increased if desired during this process.

How much does over roofing cost?

This is completely dependent on the results of a full site survey, which is highly recommended as you will gain a complete picture of all the costs. Solutions can vary widely in cost and lifespan expectancy. So as part of your site survey, wider consideration needs to be given to the future for your building.
