Homeowner were struggling with ice damns. While the ice damns had not caused damage to the house yet, the homeowners decided to nip the problem in the bud and prevent any damage in the future by installing copper panels.
This house was originally built with ornamental wooden gutters, and as they aged they began to rot out. By lining them with copper we improve the performance of the roof while still retaining the house's original style!
The original Shingle roof had begun to deteriorate and the homeowner was in search of a more long lasting solution. We installed copper panels because of their longevity and the added curb appeal.
As part of a comprehensive exterior restoration on a historical house in Chestnut Hill we installed custom made copper gutters and a new rubber roof.
Homeowner wished to replace the lead flashing with copper. We removed the old flashing and hip metal and replaced it with custom copper work.
Old chimney flashing can lead to some serious problems with you roof. Here we replaced some degraded flashing with new custom copper flashing.
Another classic example of GF Sprague's custom copper gutters.
We were called out to inspect a rubber roof after a tree had fallen on it, creating multiple punctures. We removed the old rubber and installed a brand new roof.
The original copper cap had started to leak so we removed it and replaced it with a custom fabricated copper cap fastened with stainless steel screws and brass washers.
