As the owner, we are actively involved in every job. We offer a free initial consultation to property owners. We will meet with you to evaluate your roofing project, ask you what you would like to do and what your needs are.

We will bring a ladder to take a close look at your roof and check for any rotted wood and other damage. We will check the roof ventilation and evaluate the soffits and vents. Proper ventilation prolongs the life of your roof.

We will answer all of your questions and make recommendations on the best solutions. Ideally, if a new roof is to be installed, we recommend that the old roof be removed for a longer lasting result.

We are very flexible in designing a solution that meet your needs and fits within your budget. We will write a written estimate of the work.

Protecting landscaping during a roofing projectWhile we work, we cover your bushes and other plantings to protect them. At the end of each day, we take the time to clean up your property and any debris and cover all building materials. We consider this to be one of the most important parts of our job.

We replace all rotted wood on the outside. We install water proofing underlayment, if needed.

We custom fabricate all our own flashing and gutters, copper work and architectural sheet metal.

Roof Warranties

If properly installed, your new roof will last for many years. We offer a 1 year labor and materials guarantee on new work. After the first year, manufacturers offer extended warrantees.

Slate RoofSlate and Copper Restoration, Brookline, MA

We offer slate roofing and maintenance service. Slate roofs can last over 100 years. The metal flashing requires maintenance every 30-50 years. The slates need periodic maintenance due to winter snows.

Flat Roof Maintenance and Replacement

We have been maintaining a school system's flat roofs for 13 years. We have also maintained roofs for nursing homes, hotels and homes.

Building Additions and Dormers

We have a builder's license, workman's compensation and liability insurance.

We offer framing and construction of second floor additions and dormers, replacement of fascia wood, gutter and soffit boards, trim work, siding, decks, etc.

New Doors and Windows and Replacement Windows

We take the time to properly align and install replacement windows. We install all new windows carefully, and properly caulk and paint them to insure a neat and professional finished look.

Roof Gutters and Drain Maintenance

We recommend that you have your roof gutters and drains maintained at least once a year, ideally twice a year, by someone you trust such as your roofer. We remove all debris from your roof and make sure the drains are clear and working properly. This work is important for maintaining your roof and extends it's life substantially.
