roofing help

I have an older shed that has a leaky roof. I am not sure where to start. Should I be removing the old shingles or lay new shingles on top of the old? Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Take the shingles all off so you can check on all the wood there . Fix any that need be . Then put new felt and shingles down.

roof

Ed,

So I shouldn't have to redo the whole roof? Just tear the shingles off the part where there is a water leak?

Thanks,

Scott

No do the whole roof at this time and be done with it. Not just a part

If your roof is old, a complete reroof sounds like a good idea. But have someone diagnose the leak or you might end up with a new roof which has the same leak. It happens thousands of times.
