Problem Medford Property Being Revitalized with the Help of State Attorney General and A&E’s “Flipping Boston”

Share Article

O’LYN Roofing solves key issue and replaces roof on eyesore property, bringing relief to neighbors and schoolkids.

The association of the two brands have done great things for the roofing company and the TV show.

Wednesday August 21 saw filming of O’LYN Roofing’s sixth episode of A&E’s “Flipping Boston” and a visit from State Attorney General Martha Coakley and Medford Mayor Michael J. McGlynn. The property became vacant and fell into disrepair, and turned into a problem for neighbors on a quiet and well-kept block in the Town of Medford. It’s proximity directly across the street from a school gave it all the more a sense of urgency to act, and that was about the time the producers of the A&E Television Network’s top-rated show “Flipping Boston” got involved.

The property is being completely renovated from top to bottom and featured on “Flipping Boston”, with hosts Dave Seymour and Peter Souhleris of CityLight Homes handling the project in typical capable fashion with the usual comic relief. The episode features O’LYN production manager Todd Mellor working with Dave to resolve a serious roofing issue while doing a full strip and reshingle on the house in the company’s usual timely fashion. The two days on set culminate in a tour of the property by the State Attorney General and Mayor discussing the project with Dave and Pete.

O’LYN and “Flipping Boston” have enjoyed a great working relationship that has grown with each episode. The producers and the hosts have come to rely on O’LYN’s expertise with the most challenging projects as well as their impressively quick and well-choreographed work. Their ability to handle the TV production process and form half of such a fantastic partnership with Flipping Boston is an added bonus. “The association of the two brands have done great things for the roofing company and the TV show.”, says Mark Negron, Marketing Director at O’LYN Contractors, Inc.
