​Can I just cover up my existing roof?

Roofing codes will allow one time of covering over a roof that has existing damage. However, it’s a bad idea. Putting a new product over old problems is a recipe for disaster. This would be like placing a newspaper over dog poop. It was a bad idea the first time it was thought of, it was a bad idea the second time, and it’s still a bad idea.
