A roof leak is a major nuisance for most homeowners in Englewood, Fl. Finding a roof leak can be frustrating or relatively simple, depending on location and weather conditions in Englewood, Fl. http://www.tprci.com/roofing.html (941) 270-2677
If your roof is older, it is possible that the leak is within the roof field. This means the expanse of shingles, slate, shakes, whatever. If your roof is asphalt, then you can walk around with ease. Other materials such as slate, concrete tile or clay tile may not be so forgiving. You can crack roofing if you walk on it, so be careful. With regular shingles, look at the tops of the vertical knockouts. Look for missing colored granules. Look for cracks. Possibly a nail has backed itself out of the roof sheathing. Simply take the time and call Timothy Parks Construction & Roofing in Englewood, Fl. (941) 270-2677 http://www.tprci.com/roofing.html

Like many common home improvement questions, the answer is you can, but you need to decide if layering shingles is the best course of action for your home. It isn’t uncommon to layer a second roof right over the first and then tear everything off before you put a third layer down. Building codes and most municipalities will usually allow you to overlay a second (though never a third) layer of asphalt shingles over an existing shingled roof. You will need to check with your building inspections department to be sure.
Common Problems with Layering Shingles
With (2) layers your not eligible for the greatest dollar reduction in your insurance premiums. Contact your insurance agent for details!
If there’s any curling of the old shingles, the new shingles will not lay flat.
Moisture can get trapped under the heavy layers and cause premature rotting of the wood.
You do add excess weight to the roof framing, which can cause the decking and/or roof joists to bow and cause a ripple effect in the roof.
Overlay will not work well at all with dimensional shingles, only three tab.
If you do overlay, you have to cut off the tab of the first course which will give you a "bump" about 6" up the roof all the way around the shingle roof.
You must pull off both layers before you roof the next time. Many times the cost for a double tear-off is more than doing it two separate times.
Layering shingles has a few drawbacks that you should take into consideration before you decide to lay new shingles over the old. Read more... (831 words, 5 images, estimated 3:19 mins reading time)

Designing and Remodeling a Home
Before you design a new home or remodel an existing one, you should consider investing in its energy efficiency. You’ll save energy and money in the long run. It’s also a good time to invest in a renewable energy system that will provide your home with electricity, water heating, or space heating and cooling.
If you’d like to design an energy-efficient home, no matter what type of design, you should use what’s called the whole-house systems approach.
If you’re remodeling a home, conduct an energy audit to help you determine what energy efficiency improvements should and can be made to your home.
Learn how to optimize energy efficiency with the following home designs and construction techniques:
Reduce lumber use and waste—improving energy efficiency—in the construction of a traditional wood-framed house.
Incorporate earth into their structure and design for durability and energy efficiency.
Use wooden logs to provide structure and insulation.
Feature energy-efficient options for new homes and improvements for older homes.
Take advantage of climatic conditions, especially the sun, for heating in the winter and cooling in the summer.
Use straw bales to provide all or part of their structure and insulation.
Produce more energy than they use.
You should also explore your options for financing an energy-efficient home or improvements.
