A roof is always an important structure. A roofer is a specialty sub contractor. Each type of roof has it’s pros and cons. The important point for the GC is to ensure that the roof is completed according to plan and at the right time. Rain and the elements can do significant damage to interior structures and work if the roof is not completed at the right time. In new construction the roof is installed after the initial framing and before any water sensitive materials are installed. During a renovation project the roof should be inspected at the outset. Any repairs and replacement should be done at the start of the project. A good roofing sub contractor can be trusted to complete a job in a few days. Once again the biggest issue is coordinating the roof will all the other work which needs to be done. If the new plans and renovation requires changing the roof deck, this needs to be done by the framer and coordinated with the roofer.
