Portico Addition and Roofing

I plan to have a portico added to the front of the house over an existing 8' w x 5 ' d stoop. This will involve cutting in to the house roof to frame and then weave the old with the new roofing shingle where is creates a valley on one side. Since a new roof is needed on the existing house the contractors said it is best to replace the house roof and install the portico roof at the same time.

This is probably true, but if we replace all the roof in one shot we won't have our known choice of roofing contractor for the house and will instead use the unknown general/remodeling contractors employees or subs. I am trying to avoid roof install problems in our area were some GCs and roofing contractors hire poorly skilled day laborers. What is the downside of doing the house roofing after the the portico roof is installed and use our roofing contractor?
