Penfold's team of roofers has completed the main part of the project: replacing the roofs of the rectory, church and hall. The rectory has been reroofed in traditional asphalt shingles, while the church and hall are covered in handsome EcoRoof rubber shingles made of recycled tires guaranteed to last for decades longer.
On Wed June 3, Stuart Hallam gathered with Penfold's hard-working six-man crew to bless, honour and thank them for their fine work, long hours, and dedicated spirit. Afterwards, we shared pizza, beer and sodas in celebration of this large project coming to a successful completion. Jonathan Manca of Penfold's reports that this recognition was "much appreciated" and that "Rey and his crew were very appreciative and said we should do this more often on our other big projects".
Approximate Timing: The end of June and early July will see final roofing details completed: stucco repair, flashings, fascia wood, gutter replacement, and a final inspection. Mid-July onwards: painting the new stucco once it has cured. Wet days delay the progress, of course.
Walk by St Philip's to admire this investment by generous donors to the Capital Campaign "Under Our Roof and Beyond Our Walls".
