Default Roofing on Bear Island

I am looking for someone to potentially replace three roofs on Bear Island - two cottages and an outbuilding. All are currently shingled. Interested in pricing out both metal and shingles. I have a long relationship with ISC and like them; for this I'm thinking a roofing contractor might be the best way to go.

I want the existing roofs removed. If the work is scheduled for next season, i can plan to transport as needed, but would be easier if the company can get themselves, their equipment, and disposal on and off the island.

Not a rush job, but want to get on someone's schedule as i know many are booking way out.

Depending on the overall condition of the roof- no sags, number of layers existing, etc, you can install metal roofing right over what you have.

We did this last fall on our place on Bear and it looks great. We used Forever Metal Roofing. We provided transportation (pontoon barge only, which you can rent from Sheps if needed). Their crew moves the material, installs and takes any waste with them, which was basically nothing as it is pre-measured and manufactured to fit. In and out in a day. If you truly need removal/disposal of your existing roof you'd have to get someone to handle that part separately.

For asphalt, reach out to Cody at Lake Life. He does them all the time. He is an island contractor and can handle it all. Also Ben at Island Construction.

Thanks - good ideas and a great starting point.
