[Greenbuilding] Roofers

Thanks Jason,

I'm hoping to insulate both between the rafters as well as on top of the sheathing. I can see an "insulation co." doing between the rafters from the attic but not sure about an insulation co getting ON the roof laying foam sheets on the exterior....it seems too intertwined with what a roofer does...harnesses, etc....please correct me if I am wrong because my search has turned up no one. 

I have the "plans" from Building Science Corps "Guide for Builders".  Many great illustrations in that document that lay out the exact details of every part/junction/penetration, etc.

I have one lead from Genero but schedules are tricky. Would still appreciate any additional thoughts on my plans or leads for roofers in the NY area.

Your region doesn't have a monopoly on the problem. You're probably best off
having a roofer do the roof and a good insulation guy or GC/energy retrofit
contractor insulate. Depending on the nature of the job, it may benefit to
draw up some plans specific to the house for all contractors to work from
and (gasp) collaborate.
