The largest roofing company in Northern California, Old Country Roofing installed a 50-year Owens Corning composition shingle roof on the 3,500-square-foot home. With a team of 25 installers, the company installed the roof-including three gables and a dangerous steep slope-in just six hours. OCR's team was led by Wade Woodward, general manager of the Fairfield branch and estimating manager.
The home construction began at 10 a.m. on Friday, Dec. 10, and was complete by late afternoon on Wednesday, Dec. 15. Nearly 50 subcontractors and hundreds of construction personnel collaborated on a tightly managed schedule to complete the job. Old Country Roofing was invited to participate in the project by lead contractor DeNova Homes.
