Job Stories From Middlesex County, MA
Solving Ice Dam Issues in West Newton, MA

A prospect called us last year telling us their ice dams were getting worse every year and they did not know why.  When our certified expert sat down with the homeowners, we found out the house was built in 1941 and they inherited it from their parents.  The owners did not remember any ice dams when they were younger.  As we interviewed the homeowners, it was discovered that over the past 80 years 2 additions were put on the house, the windows were updated, another bathroom was installed, and a new heating system was installed.  In reality this was no longer an 80 year old house but an updated house with old bones.

The challenge for G.F. Sprague was to keep the ice dams to a minimum and out of the house, while keeping the character of the house.  After our evaluation we recommended venting the attic to allow cold air into the attic to lower the ice dams. The homeowner said we have never had that before why do we need it now.  We responded be telling them that with all of the new windows and additions the dynamics of the house has changed.  The final factor that created the ice dams was installing the heater in the attic.  Over the last 15 years contractors have been installing new heaters in the attic, which is great for the house because it does not take up living space and you can put the air ducts in the ceiling.  The downside there is a new heat source in the attic causing newer and larger ice dams.  This was part of the situation with this house.  

Custom Window & Screen Installation in Newton, MA

For this project we needed to create some custom screens to fit the elaborate windows of these homeowners. In order to do that, our crew starts by drawing out the window on plywood then cutting the design to use as a stencil for the new screens. This type of preparation ensures that our crew will have the perfect sized screen for these new windows. It's the extra attention to detail like this that allows our crews to perform your project to the highest standard of excellence.

Custom Copper Pipe Cover in Belmont, MA

These Belmont homeowners called us needing to have their roof replaced. The shingle roof was over 20 years old, so the homeowners took the proactive approach to have the roof inspected before they started experiencing leaks. Our certified expert determined that the roof had less than a year left in it, so the best decision was to replace the roof before putting it through another winter.

We replaced the shingle roof, but simply replacing the shingles is just the obvious part of a project like this one. The other parts of the projects are the fine details, in this case, a vent pipe which protruded from the roof. Shingling around this was easy, but an added piece our crew installed was a custom copper pipe cover.

You can see the cover below, and it will do a great job of keeping water out of the pipe to prevent any water damage to the home. Brian was able to use his skills as a craftsman to shape and solder this cap to perfectly fir the home. You can see the copper he started with and the final product, all that's left is to install it!

Caulked Slates in Weston, MA

This home was in desperate need of an experienced craftsman. The homeowner originally contacted us to work on their gutters, but when we arrived it was apparent that there were much more pressing concerns. These pictures perfectly illustrate how improper maintenance and shoddy craftsmanship can jeopardize the longevity and security of your roof. The most obvious mistake the previous contractor had made was the use of caulking to “seal” the slates and secure them to the roof. This style of repair will fail quickly, damage the surrounding slates and make future repairs (which will absolutely be needed) more costly. The next problem is harder to spot for anybody other than an expert. Many slates in this photo are porous, causing them to become brittle and shale over time. A porous slate will allow water to get between the layers of stone and cause it to peel away from itself. It’s very important to have dense slates from a good mine. Pennsylvania slates are notorious for their poor quality, which is why GF Sprague sources our slate from Vermont. While the difference won’t be immediately apparent, an expert can tell the difference between them with the rap of a knuckle.

Two Flat Roofs in West Newton, MA
On a beautiful home in Newton, MA no one would have suspected that there was even a dent in their roof. It wasn't until a rainy day in February that the homeowners began to see drops of water falling from their ceiling into the mudroom. Above their mudroom was a rubber membrane roof that was recently patched up twice with no avail. Because of this, we determined that there was an issue with the entire roofing system rather than the mere rubber roof. So, after further inspection of the home, we found a ridge was blown off of the peak of their roof, missing slates, and in addition to the leak in their rubber roof, they had a leak in their copper roof AND shingle roof! If we didn't look any further, this poor family would have had to deal with the consequences of water damage from the other leaks. 
We proposed that the safest option would be to take care of all the issues present. This included work on their membrane roof, installation of a new copper flat roof, slate and carpentry repair, and shingle work. The various holes, dents, and cracks across their roofing system called for minor fixes that can protect their home from major damage for a long time.

Chimney Rebuild in Carlisle, MA

A homeowner called in after they noticed a leak coming from the wall next to the chimney in their home. Because of a chimney with an age of over 10 years and a shingle roof possibly older, we determined that the best solution to their leak would be to completely rebuild the chimney and add a chimney cap to prevent any debris or animals from entering their home. With another request by the customer to fix their asphalt roof, we happily went and replaced deteriorated asphalt shingles with brand new ones to prevent further leaking.
