You will be able to change the color, shape and even the material of your manufactured home’s roof when you are doing a home roof over. Below is some of the most common roof over for cheap manufactured homes.
Flat to Pitched Mobile Home Roof Over
The popularity of manufactured homes with flat roofs has seen a significant decrease in the last few years. This is because this type of roof requires extra maintenance, and need regular re-coatings. In addition to that, flat roofs without a gutter system or overhang may cause damage to the exterior walls of your manufactured home.
However, you can considerably reduce the damage by turning your flat roof into a peaked or pitched roof and by offering overhang.

If you are planning to add an extra layer of shingles, then make sure to get an expert’s opinion before you proceed with the decision.
