Slideshow: Atlanta First United Methodist Church
The synthetic slate roofing system on the Atlanta First United Methodist Church was not watertight — water was leaking through the walls inside the church. The roof had been installed five years ago and while the slate tiles were hung properly and were still in good condition, a lot of details (especially flashing details) were left unfinished. This allowed for water to penetrate the system in many places. Unfortunately, repeat service calls from the installers hadn’t solved the problems.
Sentry Roof technicians cleaned the roof of all debris then methodically located and corrected all of the areas that were leaking. While doing the work we noticed other issues that needed attention. The church had us back to resolve those issues as well. Now the roof is in up to warranty standards and we will be maintaining it regularly through our Sentry Roof Care program.
