“We take pride in every job we do, but big projects like this give us a chance to really show the quality work we’re capable of."
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (PRWEB) January 07, 2022
Boak & Sons, Inc. is a residential and commercial exterior contracting company based in Youngstown, Ohio. Specializing in roofing, siding, insulation, gutters, and sheet metal, the company has completed several high-profile roofing, insulation and architectural sheet metal jobs, such as the Youngstown Amphitheater, The Youngstown State University football stadium, the Historic Saint Mary’s Church in the central district of Warren, Ohio and many others. Recently, Boak & Sons completed an impressive new roof on the Tippecanoe Country Club (TCC) in Canfield, Ohio.
At the start of 2020, Boak & Sons received a request from TCC to take a look at some loose shingles. Upon inspection, Boak discovered that the existing shingles, installed in 1984, had reached the end of their life expectancy. There were many missing shingles, and the ones still present had significant storm, wind, and hail damage. Boak & Sons worked hand-in-hand with TCC to develop a plan to replace the entire roof.
“When we get a job like the Tippecanoe Country Club, we get excited” said Chris White, vice president, operations of Boak & Sons, Inc. “We take pride in every job we do, but big projects like this give us a chance to really show the quality work we’re capable of. The Tippecanoe Country Club is a beautiful building, and we were honored to be chosen for a local project that helps us stay involved in our community here in Youngstown.”
To maintain the authentic style of roof on the country club, TCC and Boak & Sons chose a synthetic slate shingle called EcoStar, which closely resembles slate shingles. The club’s board members were instrumental in the process, selecting colors and styles that would best represent the club’s prestigious reputation. Due to the extremely steep slope of the roof, heavy duty and durable ice guards were also installed to help protect the roof in the cold Ohio months.
The actual roofing work began in August of 2021, with demolition and removal of the existing shingles. As the project started, the Boak & Sons crew noticed that the gutters were also deteriorating beyond repair. The club then selected a 6-inch, K-style gutter to replace the old gutter system. Inclement weather caused a two-week rain delay on the project, but otherwise installation was done in just an impressive 9 weeks.
“I want to sincerely thank the board members at Tippecanoe Country Club for trusting Boak & Sons with this project,” said Sam Boak, president and founder of Boak & Sons, Inc. “Everyone communicated in a timely matter and worked together to make this job as smooth as possible. I also want to thank my own employees for their continued dedication to superior quality service and safety. Their beautiful craftsmanship on this project is a prime example of their hard work and I couldn’t be more proud.”
