So, how many layers of roof are on that house? If you happen to be looking at a house that is old enough for the fifteen year shingles to have worn out, and another layer of shingles was added, don’t panic. The North Carolina building code only allows two layers of roofing. But why does it look like there are four layers at the edge? That is because the starting course of shingles is two layers. That covers roughly the first ten inches of the roof, but the rest is only two layers.
If a new roof is needed after this, it will cost a little more to remove the extra layer, but shouldn’t take much longer than a single layer roof replacement.
