    You have a great crew. Your crew chief, Tony, is as professional and competent as any employee in any profession that I have had to deal with. The rest of his crew were courteous and responsive, and appeared to really care for the work. You can't pay these guys enough!

    I want to congratulate you on the fabulous staff you have assembled. I could not have asked for better workmen (craftsmen is a better word) for the job. Tony Pedro and his team were everything a customer could want and then some. They were kind, courteous, clean, professional, and did beautiful work promptly. They were especially helpful in advising us on things such as an interior water leak and our raccoon and carpenter bee problem. Tony prepared an impressive presentation for my town's Board of Historic Preservation so that we could use copper gutters instead of wood. He went before the board on a Wednesday night in August while we were on vacation and made our case -- which we won easily due to his excellent letter and visuals. I will certainly recommend GF Sprague to all of my friends in need of roof repairs and I will be calling again as we get closer to Stage Two in our renovations. Thank you for a job well done.

    it was a pleasure to work with Sprague. Hal was very helpful with the insurance company, resulting in significant reimbursement of the costs. Tony is an exceptional person and a highly skilled foreman and hands on leader of a team of workmen.

              Tony is a fabulous foreman-knowledgeable, helpful, courteous, kind, and clean. All of the crew were good to be around and persistently hard workers. The work is beautiful. They made a great presentation to the historic commission on night (while we were on vacation) so that we could use copper gutters. Above and beyond the call.

    Customer Testimonial

              "We had Tony do two projects for us, two major projects, very complicated involving copper roofing, regular roofing, and rubber roofing. We also did copper gutters, and Tony was just wonderful. I would highly recommend Tony, highly recommend Sprague as a contractor. We have a complicated roof, it's an old 1917 Dutch colonial which has had a series of leaks and Sprague has finally resolved it after we have had many roofers try to figure out where the leaks are coming from. We are very pleased, very happy with all the work and we would definitely recommend Sprague and will call them back again for any further roofing repair."

    This customer had been experiencing issues with their gutters not working properly for years before they decided to call us. Not only do the new copper gutters give the property a great new look, but they also ensure water flows off the roof properly.

  • Tile Roof Valley Repair in Newton Center, MA
    Before
    Tile Roof Valley Repair in Newton Center, MA
    After

    This part of this project was all about repairing damage along the valley of this tile roof. There were several spots where the tiles were damaged, so our crew stripped the valley back to the wood on either side to start this project. This allowed them to make sure the roof was watertight before replacing the broken tiles, bringing this project to a close! 

  • Inset Dormer Installation in Belmont, MA
    Before
    Inset Dormer Installation in Belmont, MA
    After

    For this customer in Belmont, we provided some repair work on an inset dormer around one of the windows. We used copper to give the house a newer look, and the new work will prevent any leaking or future damage. Check out our photo gallery for more pictures of this job.

  • Copper Roof Replacement in Belmont, MA
    Before
    Copper Roof Replacement in Belmont, MA
    After

    The existing copper roof at this home was starting to leak so we replaced the panels. Not only does the shiny new copper look fantastic, but the precise seals created by our expert craftsmen when soldering the panels will let water run right off the roof rather than into it. The first photo also shows the ice and water shield which goes underneath the copper panels.

  • Slate Roof Repair in WInchester, MA
    Before
    Slate Roof Repair in WInchester, MA
