This winter was one of heavy snow for the DC Metro area. Our friends at St. Dominic's Church found that the snow on their roof had pulled off a large portion of the slates and snow guards on their roof as well as a large portion of the gutters that were there. They called Maggio Roofing in to help.
"After the snow storm damage occurred, we contacted our insurance company and Maggio Roofing. The Maggio staff quickly developed the cost to complete the repairs, negotiated the cost with the insurance company and came to agreement on the final price while keeping in constant contact with the church staff."
Our project estimator, Steve Zisserman, was sent out to assess the damage that the storm did to the building. As you can see from the statement above, Steve promptly developed a solution to the situation and proposed it. Our proposal included replacing the eight rows of slates and putting in new snow guards along the edge of the roof. Additionally, new ice and water shield was installed along with copper gutters.
"Whenever it rained, we were catching 20 gallons or more of water in the attic so it was important that the repairs be accomplished quickly. Once the contract was signed, within days, the scaffolding was erected, the damaged slate removed, and the roof was made rain tight. Shortly thereafter, the slate and gutters were replaced and the site was cleaned/restored. All the work was accomplished quickly and professionally."
Once the proposal was submitted and signed, our foreman Luis Agustin, quickly completed the job to avoid any further damage that the elements might cause. The complexity of the church roof included multiple surfaces that were not walkable and required us to set up scaffolding, which was also quickly acquired and setup. In the included pictures you can see the damage to the roof before the work and the completed job by our skilled craftsman under the guidance of Luis.
