G.F. Sprague Chosen for Copper & Shingled Roof Work on Famous Architect Royal Barry Willis Home


Needham, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/10/2014 -- G.F. Sprague licensed and certified roofing contractors, are not new to taking on projects that are unique and require a bespoke roofing solution that seamlessly combines aesthetics with high functionality. The company has beheld many cases where the owners of the house had thought only in terms of aesthetics when they were selecting and installing a roof on the house, but were later faced with serious roof issues that compromised the structural integrity of the house.

Fortunately as one of the best roofing Wellesley MA and home improvement company in the area, G.F. Sprague has been able to deliver a comprehensive portfolio home improvement services for residential buildings which includes coming up with innovative roofing solutions that blend aesthetics with functionality using the latest roofing techniques and materials.

Recently, G.F. Sprague had been called upon to provide a roofing solution for a house designed by the well-known architect Royal Barry Willis. The house was facing a severe leakage problem. As a house designed by a famous architect, the structure had many unique qualities and features; therefore the aesthetics were an important element of the whole house including the roof.

The original roof had been chosen only for the aesthetical reasons and was not able to provide the performance that was required. After the G.F Sprague team had been called upon, the project manager Steve Herget was able to pinpoint the exact cause of the problem. Steve was able to identify that the original roof of the cape house had wooden shingles installed on slopes even though they were too low for the shingles which caused the roof to leak during the snow and rain seasons.

Under the leadership of Mr. Herget, the project manager, the team quickly started work on repairing the existing roof, removing the existing wooden shakes, installing new copper and tie them into wooden shakes therefore finding a nice blend of high performance and aesthetics. The highly satisfied copper roofing Wellesley MA homeowner expressed his gratitude by simply saying:

“I wish I had called you first.”
