Greater Boston Roofing Contractor

Roof Repair and Roof Replacement in Newton, Needham, Wellesley, MA

Roofing contractor in Greater Boston

Whether your roof is worn out or has sustained weather damage, we can provide you with a quality roof repair or new roof installation.

Does your roof need some help? If you're at all concerned by the appearance or function of your roof, call GF Sprague. We have over 45 years of experience with roof inspection, repair, maintenance, and roof replacement in Greater Boston and are standing by ready to help you with all of your roofing needs 24 hours a day 7 days a week.

The roof is the single most important structural component of the house, protecting everything that is inside of the house from everything that is outside - wind, weather, animals, you name it. Often overlooked, we tend not to pay attention to our roofs unless there's an obvious problem like a leaking roof or missing shingles. The good news is with early detection, your roofing problem can often be repaired and your roof will go back to looking and functioning like new.

Too many homeowners wait to call roofing contractors until they have a roof concern. They don't want to be faced with the expense of roof replacement, so they put off the inevitable for as long as possible. Unfortunately, that's the worse possible thing you can do if you have a roofing problem. Many roofing issues can be fixed before they become major problems and the earlier you contact GF Sprague for an evaluation, the better. We offer free roofing cost estimates on all our roofing services in Newton, Needham, Wellesley and nearby.

    After

    The shingles over the ridges of these dormers has been severely damaged by wear and tear. If this damage continued to worsen, it could have eventually allowed water to leak into the tops of the dormers. Luckily we caught this in time, and our crew was easily able to replace these shingles, making sure the dormers will be leak free.

    This customer called us because their roof was leaking. Upon our inspection of the roof, our certified expert determined that the existing roof was too deteriorated to repair. Instead, we decided that replacing the roof would be the best option both in terms of functionality and appearance.

    After

    For this project we had to replace several broken slates on this dormer in Weston. Our crew replaced the slates and installed copper along the edge of the dormer too. While the new copper gives the slates a beautiful new accent, but it will also help keep the dormer watertight and have these homeowners leak free for years to come.

    By Herbert G.
    Wellesley Hills, MA

    Somewhat belatedly, I wanted to thank you and your crew for the outstanding job which you did at our home. Your initial survey and suggestions were, as they say, "spot on" and the work was completed without delay, without question, and all suggestions implemented expeditiously. The roof looks great, the vents fit in and flow within the overhangs well, and the cleanup and neatness were excellent. We've had a few rain storms since the new roof has been on and I haven't even found a leak!

    GF was recommended to us by a colleague who said the following: "you might find a cheaper provider but you won't find a better one!" This sums it up, GF is priced above market but the quality of their product and service is well worth it. Bob and Mark are a great team as they take their respective roles almost painfully serious and thus assure on time and on budget craftsmanship.

    Years ago our roof was ruined from the hurricane. My husband searched online and found good reviews about Sprague. We have had a great relationship ever since. You have done my house roof, you have repaired and re-roofed my garage, you have installed gutters on the garage, etc... You stand behind your work. Your sales staff is not pushy. Your crew work like maniacs - in a good way - hard workers who know what they are doing and work fast, yet efficiently, and clean up the job site. You are all honest. Your project manager is awesome - love Bob S!!!! Quality work. You get what you pay for, and then some!! I will continue to use Sprague and refer you to others!

    Customer Review

    By Homeowner
    Arlington Heights, MA

    G.F. Sprague that specializing in roofing, chimneys, gutters and windows did an excellent job when I was looking to replace my tea hut's cedar shingle roof.   In this case, I wanted top quality as I have been engaged with Japanese tea ceremony for years, regularly use my hut to share tea and am doing research on the benefits of this art form for modern life in graduate school. G.F. Sprague kept me informed about a weather delay and then took the time needed to do the job right. For example, they matched the hut paint color for an overhang that needed to be replaced due to water damage, and retouched other spots on the hut as well.  They installed a mesh layer to allow air circulation under the cedar singles and also added an elegant drip guard around all roof edges to avoid future water damage.  I had seen a recommendation for G. F. Sprague on the Arlington List and so had reason to believe the higher rates they charge were worth it.  As it turns out, they informed me I should not need to replace my tea hut roof again in my life time.  In Arlington, we are lucky to have access to such high caliber workmanship.  Thanks to all who make finding such resources easier by generously share their personal experience and recommendations on this List.
