If you see ice buildup on the roof of your home, do not try to remove it with something that has a sharp edge as it will puncture and damage the shingles and remove the granules on the shingles themselves. Contact a qualified roofing contractor like Home Evolution to ensure that the ice damming is properly removed and that the problem is fixed so that it does not return in the future.
First, it is good to get down to the roof deck to see how sound the previous installation is. If you place a new layer of shingles on top of a decaying or problematic roof deck, this significantly reduces the lifespan of your new roof and does not necessarily get rid of potential roof leaks.
Second, most manufacturer warranties are made void when the new layer of shingles is installed on top of the old layer and not stripped down to the roof deck.
