Roofing W/ HVAC On The Roof

I am a general contractor and we are remodeling a house. The house has two roof mounted HVAC units on shingles. Do you reroof around the unit/base or do you remove the unit first and then reinstall? I guess it didn't occur until after the agreement was signed. I've read mixed reviews on how to proceed. Also, they have a wood fence around the HVAC unit on the roof to make it less noticeable. Thanks!

Re: Roofing W/ HVAC On The Roof

We have done both when doing re-roofs. The majority of the time, we lift the units and put them back, but that's a lot more work. As long as inspection passes, and customer doesn't mind, either way should work.
