I am wondering what the cons are for laying shinlges right over my existing roof.

I mean what is the worst that could happen?

1. Simply laying new shingles over old is not good.
2. Inspect and repair the existing.
3. Then decide if you want to do an lay-over or re-roof.

How do you sleep at night?
You appear to be a real pro, how many of those 10.00 an hour dudes have legal green cards?

I don't work with anyone except me and 2 guys who have been working with me for years. I said YOU must have picked them up at the convenient store since you seem to have all day to be online. How can you be online and be on a roof too? Don't know about you but I can't be 2 places at once. If you worked for us, you may need a little more ins. cause my guys don't take too kindly to the slothful, a few more slothers falling off roofs could certainly happen.

I set down at the computer a few times today because the 7" of snow with a fair layer of ice under it put a halt to roofing until Monday.
It's been a pretty crappy three days now, weather wise.

I'm a self employed roofer, not a business man, I work full time when the weather allows.
I don't hide who I am either, I advertise in numerous places because I carry proper insurances and use legal labor.

I would definitely like to meet a few of the posters in person on this site.In Springfield we have an awesome steakhouse.I can almost guarantee that it would be the BEST steak you have eaten.,Hands down.I fear no steer.

As far as the original OP's question.In some situations and depending where you are in the U.S you can select that option.It is always a good idea before you have any repairs performed on your property no matter what contact your building department and find out what installation procedures are required/allowed/recommended.

I will agree to fight.,.,hahahaha.,fight my way to the front of the buffet line.,hahahaha

You will have no manufactures warranty and if you have wood rot then if will never get changed, not to mention the mold issues that can be possible with leaks
