Minor tasks such as sealing leaks and replacing damaged shingles will preserve the life of your roof and maintain its quality.

    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.

    Paul is a gem. He's a talented carpenter as well as a great contractor supervising everyone and paying attention to every detail. The house looks beautiful and the entire huge job was surprisingly stress free for us. The office staff were responsive when I needed to get in touch or to find out about something. The workers were enthusiastic and showed so much pride in their work! Thanks so much!

When an emergency happens, we're here to help

Even excellent maintenance work can't prevent roof damage that occurs because of severe weather and freak accidents. Emergency roof repairs are often necessary when a building is exposed to high winds and impacts from falling trees.

Of course, some emergency roof repairs, including roof leak repair, can be avoided by preventative work such as roof snow removal to prevent ice damming and roof collapse due to snow loading. When emergency roof repairs are necessary, call GF Sprague for a fast, effective solution.

Benefits of regular roof maintenance

The type of roofing material creates different challenges for roof repair work. For example, asphalt shingles, wood shingles, concrete tiles, and clay tiles often have damage to individual shingles or tiles, meaning those pieces need replacement. Metal roofing generally comes in much larger panels, so those are only replaced when spot repairs aren't effective. Finally, flat roof repair is an entirely different process due to the rolled material and liquid waterproofing compounds.

Lifting shingles on Needham roof

Lifting shingles. Shingle lifting is a typical roof problem that should be repaired to prevent roof leaks and water damage.

No matter what type of roof you have, regular maintenance is very beneficial. There are several key reasons to perform consistent maintenance:

  • Prevent leaks, drafts, and other exterior problems
  • Stay aware of potential issues and fix them before they become major
  • Prevent expensive repairs in the future
