bermuda sod over dormant bermuda grass?

Im thinking about installing TifGrand bermuda sod in my lawn that was seeded with bermuda last year. The seeded lawn is thin in some shadow areas of my house and i want to install the TifGrand in those areas.

my question is do i have to till up the areas and then lay the sod................. or can I just mow the current dormant grass real low and then lay the new sod on top of it.....?

Do those areas still get a little bit of sun throughout the day? From my understanding, Tifgrand still requires some sun.

the areas closest to the house get about 5-6 hours of sunlight a day - either morning sun or afternoon depending on the time of the day -- the shadowing from the house moves with the sun. but each area get around 5-6 hours...
