In this video we show you how to tie in an existing roof with a new roof to avoid any future leaks or issues, putting you back where you started.
The roof I am working on in this project is a 4ply built up system with gravel on it. What you need to do is create a centerline, an area where the new roof is going to start. Chip away the existing gravel, exposing the stone underneath. If you don’t remove the stone, and you put new roof over it, the water will get underneath the gravel, so make sure you clear it away, but don’t damage the felt. Create a 5 or 6 inch gap, and then you are ready to tie in the new roof!
