Storm Damage Response Options:

Massachusetts Roofing Services

Your roof is the single most critical structural system for protecting your home against wind, weather and wildlife. Therefore, it must be built to withstand sun burnout, wind lift up, torrential driving rain, snow loads, ice back ups, pounding hail, animals clawing, knawing, pecking to get in, rotting, falling leaves and branches cutting through— whatever Mother Nature can throw at it!

With over 40 years of experience evaluating, restoring and replacing thousands of roofs in the Boston area, G.F. Sprague has the knowledge and expertise necessary to properly protect your home and your family.

Roofing Repair or Replacement?

If you are unsure whether you need a full roof replacement or just a simple repair, CONTACT US for a free on-roof inspection and analysis. Once the inspection is complete we will write you a recommendation for repair, maintenance or replacement.

More than half of the roofs we inspect do not even need to be replaced! We find that, with professional roof repairs, we can extend the useful life of most roofs without the expense of total replacement. Speak with a G.F. Sprague professional today to explore your roofing options.

 gf sprague  massachusetts contractor certificationMassachusetts DCAM Certification – G.F. Sprague DCAM License # #08-0165

The Division of Capital Asset Management (DCAM) is the state agency responsible for major public construction and real estate services for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. The agency promotes quality and integrity in the Commonwealth’s building construction and real estate operations. A DCAM certificate is the only one that qualifies a contractor for a specific trade, and a contractor must be recertified by DCAM every year. This makes it a good measure of the quality of a contractor.

Mass State Building Code LogoManufacturers’ Certifications

The best manufacturers want to ensure that their products are being properly installed, and put contractors through training, testing and (in some cases) retesting before granting certification. In many cases, manufacturer certification of the contractor is required in order for the product warranty to be valid. Many manufacturers also require contractors to receive refresher training and to update their certifications annually. Ask to see the manufacturers’ certifications before hiring a roofing contractor, and make sure your proposal includes everything required to prevent voiding the manufacturer’s warranty.

national roofing assocationMassachusetts Construction License

– G.F. Sprague Construction License # cs20976, with no restrictions
Unfortunately this license requires little knowledge and no prior experience specific to a certain trade (like roofing). The one-time test is based on general building code — solely new construction not reroofing — with few questions related specifically to roofing. Although your city or town may only require a Mass. Construction License for a roofer to purchase a permit, it doesn’t make the company qualified.

Home Improvement Contractor Registration (HIC) – G.F. Sprague HIC Registration #104531

The only requirement for this is that the contractor submit a registration form and pay into a fund. There is no qualifying or testing of the contractor’s knowledge or experience. Almost anybody can get this registration certificate.

Insurance Coverage Certificates

A certificate of insurance clearly defines the types of insurance carried by a contractor, including the coverage limits and expiration dates. Insist on seeing all certificates of insurance (workman’s compensation, liability, vehicle) before hiring any contractor. At GF Sprague, all of our insurance certificates are available upon request.

Gutters

gutter repair - cleaning  maMost of us would eliminate gutters altogether if we could. So why are they necessary on most homes? Because of home design, construction and the surrounding terrain, the water landing on your roof must be conducted away from the structure. Without gutters, water and ice would wear away your siding, windows, lower roofs, foundation, landscaping — anything in the path of cascading water in all forms. Click Here to Learn More

Chimneys

chimney repairYour chimney is exposed to the same weather and elements as your roof, and will (can) also suffer harmful damage and deterioration. Your chimney should be inspected regularly, preferably in spring or early summer when heating season is over. That way, you’ll minimize any damage and have enough time to schedule any repairs you may need before a new heating season begins in the fall. Click Here to Learn More

Replacement Windows

replacement windowsNew windows can be one of your homes most attractive features. New windows can provide you with convenient ventilation, ease of use, superior natural light, and cleaning convenience not found in older windows. If you have a older home, or inefficient windows you could be throwing up 30% of your heating and cooling dollars out the window, literally. On average for the year 2001 the owner could expect to recoup approximately 69% upon the sale of the home when replacing their older windows. Today there are so many manufacturers of windows, it can be difficult to choose a quality product. Of course every manufacturer or window salesperson claims to have the best product.

Radiant Barrier

home insulation contractorThe insulation in your home’s attic is designed to slow down the transfer of heat from inside to space beneath your roof. But even the thickest, most effective insulation needs help. That’s where Radiant Barrier™ comes in. Radiant Barrier is a layer of high-tech material that covers your existing insulation and reflects escaping heat back into your home to keep you toasty warm all winter. In summer, Radiant Barrier serves to reflect attic heat away from your home’s interior to keep you cool and comfortable. Click Here to Learn More

Ice Dam Removal

GF Sprague is the ice dam removal specialist for MassachusettsThe freezing temperatures and snowfall that occur across New England in Winter (and into the early Spring) can result in a dangerous threat known as “ice dams.” An ice dam occurs when the temperature of the interior of your home’s attic is warmer than temperature of your roof. Snow and ice on the heated surface of the roof melt from the bottom up, and the resulting water flows down toward your gutters. Click Here to Learn More
