Can't a roofer get a day off?

I use I&WS in valleys when I re-roof regardless of whether there will be metal or not as temporary protection.

If the valley is to be shingled through (California or woven valley), I don't use metal. If there is to be an exposed metal valley, I lay it over the I&WS. I prefer to use metal, but if done correctly, the I&WS is all that's necessary in my climate and satisfies local code.

This answer may be wrong for other locales.

If by liner you mean tarp then better to have that then nothing.

Personally I never tear off more than I can get covered up in a day.

At least new felt and if there’s a chance of rain I’ll tarp that too.

ya by liner i mean the felt. the roofers told me they would only tear off what they could replace. But when i got home from work they had left and part of the roof only has felt on it. ive left messages but not had a call back yet. i wasnt sure if i should go into panic mode yet.

“If” they did the felt correctly you should have no leaks if it rains.

My concern is the wind tearing the felt and raining, then you would have some issues.

I see there are some pretty decent storms brewing in your area now that may last through the night.

so after 5 calls to my contractor and getting on the roof myself trying to cover it in plastic while it was storming no less . the contractor finally called and told me he left the old felt down and put new felt over it like a tarp. He is going to replace the felt tomorrow.

Thatís kind a hokey explanation.

While heís tearing off his new felt tarp make sure he tears off the old felt too and do a proper sheathing inspection before covering.
