First Congregational Church

First Congregational Church

The First Congregational Church existing built-in gutter was extensively rotted and required rebuilding and re-lining (w/ EPDM). We provided lcc cap-flashing to allow for future replacement of gutter lining without need for removal of slates.

Insulation was replaced on top of exposed T&G sheathing to enhance energy efficiency, and installed plywood to provide nailing surface for new slates. Chose lcc ridge-roll to make maintenance easier.
