Although a skylight might look nice and add some natural light to your space, it is typically advised to install these additions WHILE the roof is being installed or replaced not after that fact. Once a roof is installed, anything that required penetrating the roof, removing parts of it, etc. typically voids the warranty as it opens the roof up to damage due to the modifications.
Layering Over Old Roof
When people want to save money they often opt to layer over an existing roof, and while this may seem like a good idea, it often isn’t. Layering over an older roof can actually shorten the lifespan of the new one and lead to additional problems. It is always best to remove the old roof first.
When it comes to the warranty of roofing materials used to install and replace roofs, they can be quite picky about certain things. Such as who installs it, how many nails go in each shingle, the length of the nail, etc. If you are interested in installing your own roof, we highly recommend asking the manufacturer about the warranty and anything you may need to know.
