Bethlehem Wood shingle roof 
In order for your roof to achieve it's maximum intended life span it must be properly ventilated and  protected from mold formation.  That is why we attempt not only to make your home weather tight, but also to make sure it has a complete ventilation and mold protection system.
We also always inspect each potential roof job to make sure the structure is capable of supporting the proposed new roofing load.  In most cases the roof will only be capable of carrying one layer of shingles.  In rare cases of a very well built house, it may be able to support the addition of another layer of shingles. We never add additional layers of shingles to a home without calculating whether the roof can hold the additional weight.
