Roofing Get Together

Ok I was wondering you fellow Michiganders. How many would be willing to help me redo my roof. It is in pretty bad shape and most likely will need to be done before winter.

So how many are willing to help me out. By the way I have no clue how to roof. So I hope one of you do.

If I had my way it would be diamond plate aluminum. But it will shingled.

It has two layers now. So it will have to be stripped to the wood and then felt paper then shingled. I will also have to install ice damn protection as well.
Along with some new flashing.




I will provide steaks and beer for dinner each evening.

Man that's a hell of a deal! Times like this I wish I lived closer.. Just some advice, don't try to 'patch' anything up, if there is some wood that needs to be redone, replace it and look around for other damage if there is any. Good luck with the recruiting

I think a full weekend would be needed to get this done. Start on Saturday Morning bright and early. I can have it stripped off already that is not to hard to do.

It is the repairing any bad wood, laying the tar paper, and ice damn protection, and shingles that I need help with.

To strip it all I need is a shovel from what I seen with roofing companies. Park my trailer along the side of the house. Place a tarp over it and start taking off the old roof.

If my measurements are correct I am looking at about 500 dollars for materials. Not including any wood that may need to be replaced.

The area circled in yellow is the roof in question. This is the are that needs to be redone before this winter. Now this does include the back side as well.

One on the backside for the hot water heater and the boiler. No vents at all from the attic which maybe changed when the roof is done. I was thinking about soffit vents and a ridge vent.
