Double roofing is an advanced technique in which a new roof is installed atop an existing one without needing to dismantle the old one. This innovative approach has several advantages and can be used for residential and commercial buildings. Below, you’ll learn more about double roofing, its main benefits, and when it should be used instead of traditional roof replacement methods. 

What Is Double Roofing?

DOUBLE ROOFING involves installing a new roof over an existing one. This helps preserve the integrity of both roofs while avoiding many of the associated costs and inconveniences of standard roof replacement. Since no demolition or disposal services are needed, this method is far less invasive and time-consuming than other solutions. Furthermore, since double roofing also provides extra insulation to buildings, it can help reduce energy costs by reducing thermal loss. 

The Benefits of Double Roofing

Double roofing offers several key advantages over conventional methods:

  • Reduced Cost – Double roofing requires fewer materials and labor than traditional solutions, resulting in substantial savings on the cost of installation. Additionally, because it does not require tearing down your current roof or disposing of existing materials, additional expenses associated with these activities are avoided as well. 
  • Increased Durability – By providing an extra layer of protection for your existing structure, double-roofed structures tend to last longer than those using traditional solutions alone. The additional layers also offer better insulation from temperature extremes and extreme weather conditions such as hail storms or high winds.  
  • Improved Sustainability – By reducing energy consumption through improved insulation efficiency, double-roofed structures are much more sustainable than traditional ones in the short and long term. Since there is no need to dispose of old materials when opting for this solution, significantly less waste is generated during installation, contributing to a greener environment overall.  
  • Time Saving – Double-roofed structures require fewer materials and labor hours during installation. As a result, those using traditional methods alone do not have to wait as long before their new construction project can be completed. This makes it ideal for times when time constraints are present but still allows for top-quality results in terms of durability and sustainability without having to wait too long for them to materialize fully into finished projects after construction wraps up.  
  • Increased Property Value – Due to their increased durability compared with single-layer constructions as well as their improved sustainability credentials (which often translate into lower operational costs), double-roofed structures tend to increase property values wherever they are installed across all types of real estate markets (residential or commercial).  

This makes them an attractive investment option not just from a monetary perspective but also from a longer-term investment point of view since they will likely retain their value better while increasing the market value of properties where they are installed over time due to their improved characteristics compared with standard single-layer constructions.
