Church Renovation Continues, as Steeples are Repaired

SOMERSET, NY – The steeple roofs of the Somerset Union Methodist Episcopal Church have just completed renovation. 

The old roof was made up of two layers of roof coverings: asphalt roof shingles over old cedar shake shingles. The old roof layers were removed to reveal a plywood deck. Then new red laminated shingles cut to simulate the dimensional look of wood shakes were installed. The two church steeples are the areas where the most interior water damage has occurred.  Water leaked down the steeples and rotted the first floor entrance halls. The floor in these areas is completely rotted and will need to be replaced.
