The Roof

Our main church building was built in 1992. That makes the roof twenty-six years old.  Due to age there are some areas with dry rot due to failures in the eaves on the south side of the building and the entrance.   In addition the gutter system will need to be replaced. 

One of the main questions that we will have to decide shortly is whether to go with a metal  or composition roof for the church building. See below:

Here you can see the difference between the composition roof on the left (from 1992) and the metal roof on the right for the education building (2006).  The composition roof will be less expensive and  easier to attach solar units if we stay on our solar pursuit.  The metal roof will be more architectually pleasing, more durable, more expensive and may allow for some additional insulation.  Matching the buildings roofing materials will give a more coordinated look.   Additional areas of repair may be revealed when the original roof is removed.
