Our roofing company is insisting that before they'll apply a new roof coating that our air conditioners need to be raised off the roof.We have no proof of laws, statures or codes requiring this. Can you help?

Are you saying the roofing company wants the A/C units

-- temporarily removed from the roof?

-- put on permanent stands that elevate the A/C unit several inches higher than where the A/C units are now?

-- something else?

Consider asking your reserve study company its opinion.

Depending on how the HVAC units are mounted on the roof some roofers will require that it be removed. If there is flashing under the HVAC unit it also has to be replaced depending on the age. Also, roof mounted HVAC units can leak and cause damage under the unit. The only way to see if there is damage is to remove the unit.

So what is the exact problem? Is it going to be an extra expense? These things are to be expected whenever you do large projects. Always "surprises". It's always good rule of thumb to factor in a 10% + for overages.

It sounds like they want to have the units raised up to not be directly on the roof. This is probably a good idea overall. Direct contact can cause additional damage to the roof. It helps with maintenance. Plus it sounds like roof installation.
