roofing help


My posts are all over these forums these days...just a bought a house( if you didnt already know that!)...roof has some structural problems..so I hired a carpenter who will fix the roof framing issues and also pu, it a new roof.... After I signed the contract, I felt like the carpenter is not comfortable with roofing.. he told me that he might sub-contract the roofing part or if he didnt find one, he will do it himself.

Can you guys suggest me some guidelines ..so that I know he is following proper procedure. House is in New England.

Appreciate your help

Im guessing its a shingle roof, but either way a good roof installation is not something that you can just give a few quick guidelines for. I would recommend picking up certain teeds shingle applicators manual, its a pretty complete guide to installing shingles and should help you determine if your contractor is doing a good job or not. Either way, roofing should be left to a roofing contractor IMO.

does $775 sound reasonable for VSE electric (contractor Price)......this is what the contractor told me the price + 20% additional charges that he will add as per the contract.
