Construction Vendor: KJN Restoration
KJN Restoration, LLC received the Gold Award for their work on the 7th Day Adventist Church. The 7th Day Adventist Church is a one-hundred-plusy-ear-old church with varying high-pitched roof sections culminating in a 150-foot-tall steeple. The multifaceted roof has every condition imaginable, ranging in scale from small pinnacle caps to large expanses of shingles. KJN Restoration, LLC selected GAF® Slateline® Asphalt Shingles for the roof replacement. The availability of slate-shaped asphalt shingles was a significant factor in the material decision. The shape and scale of asphalt shingles are similar to slate at a fraction of the cost. Another benefit is that asphalt shingles can accommodate different rooflines, angles, and pitches.
What KJN Restoration Performed
The project was challenging due to the extraordinary number of unique conditions that required a one of-a-kind solution. In one case, vast tributary areas converged on a three-foot conductor head, a condition that leaked for years. KJN Restoration, LLC tackled this complex job with superior technique and roofing expertise. The slate-like asphalt shingles combined with the brick structure are a nod to the heritage of the building. The completed project enhances the skyline and is noticeable from several blocks away, rising well above the neighboring two- and three-story homes.
