torch down roofs
 
I want to take off an existing torch down roof and redo it . How do you remove existing roofing?. Its still pretty solid in alot of places , do I need to heat it again to take it off .do you tear off to the base layer and then it comes off easily at that point..

Slice it with a sharp utility knife, using a hook blade and then use a roofers tear-off shovel or pitch fork to get under it and roll it progressively back onto itself in manageable sized sections.

Most times, unless there is decking damage, you would not need to remove the material if it is one layer thick.

Unless it's a mobile home, only allowed one layer.

Polyurea is the way to go for mobile homes, if it is a mobile home.
