The replacement of the asphalt shingles (the main church building, the administrative wing) has begun. The work is expected to take a week and a half to two weeks. Consistent weather will be the wildcard. Delivery of the materials, dumpster, etc. and set up of the safety roof scaffolding was the first step and then as you can see in the above picture, removal of the old roofing was next. The roofer, Bannister Custom Exteriors has been working hard and they have been extremely easy to work with and tuned into the safety of the project. The slate roof work is expected to begin in either the first or second week of August. There may be a bit of over lap but the roofer replacing the shingles did not reel that there would be any interference.
