Low-Risk Reroof

Protect the outside and the inside of the house, and tear off only what you can reroof in a day

Replacing the roof on an occupied home can be a scary prospect. Exposing the roof sheathing to the elements is risky, especially if all the shingles are off the roof and a summer storm brews up suddenly. Roofing contractor Stephen Hazlett has a better way to manage reroofing jobs. By tearing off only what can be reroofed in a day, Hazlett doesn't have to rely on the thin promise of a tarp to keep a home safe overnight in the event of inclement weather. Hazlett's methodical system involves checking weather reports and managing the workflow with an efficient crew. This article includes a sidebar about the proper way to repair and replace chimney flashing.
