Last year G.F Sprague Roofing received a phone call from a couple in Brookline, Massachusetts about replacing the aging roof on their home. When G.F Sprague owner Jerry Sprague saw the address of the home, something clicked in his mind.

Jerry Sprague went back to G.F Sprague Roofing’s archive records of over 10,000 satisfied customers in the Massachusetts area – way back – To discover that the roof G.F Sprague were about to replace in Brookline was one that Jerry Sprague had installed himself, in 1969. That was Jerry Sprague’s very first year in business, and this home was one of G.F Sprague’s earliest roofing projects.

Though it now needed to be replaced, the 40-year-old roof was in remarkable condition considering that the original shingles were only designed as a “20 year” roof. Amazingly, this particular job had doubled its life expectancy.

The current owners had purchased this home shortly after G.F Sprague Roofing had installed the new roof back in 1969. Subsequently in the years to pass, G.F Sprague had worked on their church and many of their neighbors’ homes so they called G.F Sprague for the estimate. Boy, were they surprised to hear that their roof was a G.F Sprague roof!

G.F Sprague Roofing is happy to say that we installed a beautiful new roof on the home in Brookline and, in the fall of 2010 during a recent “one-year checkup” visit GF Sprague learned that the homeowners were delighted with the performance and look of their roof. G.F Sprague hopes this one lasts just as long as the original and that G.F Sprague gets the call again in 40 years.
