  • Roofing ground rules and code provisions reroofing projects must comply with
  • How reroofing projects are different and more challenging compared to roof systems installed during original building construction
  • Suggestions for working with roofing contractors and what to consider when selecting and working with roofing contractors and roof system designers
  • How reroofing projects can be designed and planned to minimize problems and ensure an end product that will perform well for the long-term.
