In early January the roofing team was able to install the roof on the new sanctuary and music wing. They also removed and installed new roofing material on the existing office wing, chapel and kitchen. This now means Redeemer’s oldest shingled roof area only dates to phase I of Sacred Space (2010).
A team of 15 roofers installed waterproof membrane and ice-and-water shield over the non-combustible plywood that had been installed earlier. Shingles were raised by mechanical lift onto the roof where power nailers allowed the team to quickly install shingles. The aluminum fascia boards and gutter/downspout systems have yet to be installed.
On Friday, January 7, a sunny day with morning tempertures in the low single digits and afternoon highs in the teens, the roofing team began the installation of shingles on the new sanctuary roof. Using long-lapse footage from the chapel construction cam, you can watch the entire east side of the sanctuary be shingled in around 40 seconds! On the following Monday, January 10, another equally cold day, long-lapse photography captures the roofers removing the shingles on the south side of the office wing and beginning the new shingling.
