Aldrich School

Slate Roof Replacement
Whitinsville, Massachusetts

The Aldrich School was experiencing problems with its slate roof, including cracked and missing slate shingles. There was extensive interior water infiltration at sheet metal flashing and gutter locations, deteriorated brick masonry above the roof line, and severe snow creep as a result of insufficient snow guards at main entrances. Gale removed and replaced the existing slate shingles, sheet metal flashings, and underlayments. We rebuilt the deteriorated brick masonry components and fully repointed the masonry chimneys. Gale also installed new copper gutters and downspouts.
