I’m trying to plan the logistics of reroofing my house. Based on the time and help available to me, I won’t be able to do the whole job at once. I think the easiest method would be to strip the entire roof and install new sheeting on one weekend, and then install the new shingles on the next weekend. (I’m planning to install new sheeting because I have an old home with felt and shingles over the original planks. The planks appear to be in good shape, so I’m planning to install the sheeting over the planks.)
I have two questions:
If I use ice & water shield as the underlayment for the entire roof, will that be sufficient to protect the house during the week between work?
I’d like to have the shingles delivered directly to the roof during the week. Is there some way I can do that without ruining the ice & water shield? I’ve used Owens Corning and IKO products in the past, and I know you can’t even walk on them if they’re in the sun. Is there another product I can use that won’t get ruined?
Thanks very much for your advice!
