If tearing off the old roof, clean and prepare deck to meet local building codes. Panels may be installed over existing asphalt shingles or applied over existing spaced sheathing provided the space between the boards is filled as necessary to provide a base for fastening. If installed over existing asphalt shingles, cut shingles back from the eaves and rake/gable edges approximately 8” or enough to allow for the Shingle Starter Clip w/Drip Edge and Shingle Rake/Gable Channel to be installed properly. Remove existing hip and ridge material. In situations where code allows re-roofing over 2 layers of asphalt shingles, follow the local code.
