Great Slate Roofing Contractor

I live in Lincoln Mass and I had GF Sprague replace my slate roof last year. I chose them after spending way too much time interviewing and listening to all the sales pitches and presentations (a bit mind numbing!). But, when you are looking at a $50k price tag, I had to do it! After a bunch of back and forth, and late night conversations with my husband, we ended up choosing GF Sprague. They weren't the cheapest, but they were the most prepared, detailed, and had a bunch of video testimonials on their website which won the day for them. They showed up on time, didn't kill my Azelas with their ladders and scaffolding, and left our home looking great. We didn't have much of a winter at all this year, but I have to say there were no leaks, and now that's its spring the new slate just glistens in the sun. My husband and I highly recommend GF Sprague.

Great Roofer

I have a very old house (almost nothing is square) with old copper gutters and a slate roof. After interviewing 3 roofers, I chose GF Sprague. I was impressed with their thoroughness and professionalism. The job went well and they cleaned up well after themselves. I highly recommend GF Sprague.

GF Sprague Roofing: I am Very Pleased

Everything went fine…all changes went smoothly…showed up when GF Sprague said they were going to show up…GF Sprague did what they said they were going to do…and I am very pleased with GF Sprague and recommend them highly.



I would recommend them to anyo...

I would recommend them to anyone.(already have to my brother) They were very professional and were one of the 2 roofers of the 7 we called to call us back and the only one to show up for the estimate.(which i think is crazy) We thought we had to replace our roof but all we needed to do was get the proper vents installed.

Very Professional Roofer

They were very thorough and professioanl from the first phone call to the follow up meeting we had with the manager. Everything looks great and they are already doing my neighbors roof because she was jealous of my new Copper Gutters and Valleys on my home. ;)

The contract we signed was NOT ITEMIZED BY COST, and the total cost, in view of the actual number of hours of work done, was outrageous. Hal Davis, the salesman, grossly inflated the number of workers, the number of hours, and the equipment required to repair our roof, then, after we had signed, failed to return our phone calls and took 3 weeks to even deliver a copy of the work plan, as promised. Production Manager Bob Scribner behaved in a thuggish and unprofessional manner during every phone call subsequent to our signing, calling us at 8 a.m. the day after the last workman left, to demand immediate payment (like a loan shark dealing with a delinquent client) and then breaking his promise to wait 5 days before charging our account. The work seems satisfactory, but Sprague's dealings with customers are so disturbing as to outweigh whatever good work they may do, and their charges are fraudulent. Jerry Sprague, president of the company, whom we wrote to, failed to address our complaints, and by his indifference left the distinct impression that all of the above is standard company practice. Don't believe a word of this company's hype.

Excellent Roofing Contractor

My experience with GF Sprague was excellent. At first I was a little taken back with all the paperwork and process. However, as the project unfolded and came to understand why they do what they do...I asked project manager about this and he replied; ""well, you got to learn something after doing this roofing gig for 40+ years!"".



These guys are professional. I...

These guys are professional. I was impressed with the thoroughness of the roofing company and their attention to detail for the repairs they did on my roof. They also did a good job of cleaning up after the work. They weren't the cheapest, but came recommended, and I would recommend them too.



Quality job

I needed a leak in my roof checked out. The men came out in no time and fixed the problem with precision and did some work on my chimney. Quality work and a solid company. Thanks.



#1 Roofers
