Roofing started! Stopped! and started again!
Our roofers from Schreiber & Associates made a start last week on our 2 ply modified bitumous membrane roof! Then stopped 'cause the temperature was -20. Then started again at some point! We have about 1/4 of the roof done. I won't start insulating until it is totally done. We have a few layers of rigid insulation on top of the roof sheathing- there will be more insulation stuffed inbetween the i-joists as well! The roof will be approximately R80. The roof deck will be a little less, as there will not be enough space to put down as much rigid insulation as I would have liked, due to the need for a roof deck door.
