Gillis Gilkerson Completes New Roof Installation for Allen Memorial Baptist Church
SALISBURY, MD – SEPTEMBER 10, 2014 – Gillis Gilkerson, one of the most stable and trusted general contracting and construction management firms on Delmarva, announced the completion of a new roof installation on Allen Memorial Baptist Church at 1303 Snow Hill Road in Salisbury, Maryland.
The project included a 12,000 square foot roof replacement to correct an already existing leaky roof. Work included the demolition of existing roof materials down to the deck and the installation of new insulated panels and roof shingles. The team also replaced interior drywall and painted where damage was caused by numerous leaks.
“The original roof was only seven years old so finding out that we needed a whole new roof – the hard way – was disappointing,” said Bruce Glisson, executive pastor, Allen Memorial Baptist Church. “The team from Gillis Gilkerson addressed every single concern we had from the very beginning. They even called me on July 4th when we had bad storms in the area and asked if they could get inside the church to make sure everything was safe and secure. Now that’s commitment.”
“We wanted to make sure the installation of the new roof would not interfere with the regular weekly activities at the church,” said Dwight Miller, president, Gillis Gilkerson. “It is our hope that the church leaders and parishioners feel a sense of comfort because they have a safe and secure roof over their heads that they won’t have to replace again anytime soon.”
“We have a lot of property and if we ever decide to build again, Gillis Gilkerson is at the top of the list for the job.”
