Best Answer

Almost always. Once it establishes a pathway, it will use it over again. Be sure to check with your physician if an outbreak occurs. Permanent damage can occur.

When you install shingles over an old layer of shingles do you have to put down felt or do you put the new layer of shingles directly over the old layer?

With composition shingles, no felt is necessary between shingle layers.

This ability to place the shingles would be lost if covered with felt.
