God has done amazing things at Faith Baptist over these past 32 years. Our current main building was completed in 2000 and has been such an incredible campus for our church. With an eye to the future, we are beginning some renovations and updates particularly on our roof. We are asking those who call Faith home to join us in this project.

Metal roofs have a life expectancy of between 40-60 years and the oldest section of the church’s roof was installed over 30 years ago. Thousands of dollars have been spent in the past ten years to make temporary repairs. The aging of the roof sections, the types of repairs that were needed, and the fading and cracking of the paint were all major determining factors on the scope of the project.
Baker is a reliable company that has been in business for over 100 years. They have clients all over the country and have the experience needed to complete an extensive project the correct way. Baker has spent months working with us to provide accurate project proposals by making many visits to our campus and inspecting all areas of our roof, internally and externally. Baker uses Aldo Coatings, a company that is also located in North Carolina and has been in business for over 40 years.
We will receive a 10-year warranty (materials and workmanship) from the roof coating manufacturer in addition to a 2-year workmanship warranty from Baker Roofing. The manufacturer will also extend the warranty for an additional 10 years after inspecting the roof 90 days prior to the original warranty expiring.
Based on conversations with tenured church members, we’ve discovered that some leaks have existed for at least 15 years.
No, the coating will reseal all areas of the metal roof sections where caulk is now deteriorating and causing water to leak in. Baker’s team will also be replacing any rusted fasteners and repairing the leaking flat metal roof section on the front of the building by removing the metal, replacing all rotten wood decking underneath, and adding a TPO membrane roof that will be tied into the rest of the existing roof correctly.
A total metal roof replacement has been estimated to cost nearly a million dollars and comes with a 20-year warranty. A total shingle roof replacement has been estimated to cost at least $465,000 and comes with a 10-year warranty. Both estimates are base prices and would likely increase significantly due to the amount of labor needed for such large projects and with the need to add plywood decking for a shingle roof replacement.
Our roof has not completely reached the point where a replacement roof is essential, but we are still dealing with many leaks and aging. By coating and making needed repairs now, the roof’s life will be extended to the appropriate time for a replacement. This plan also allows us to save and prepare for a replacement roof at the right time.
This project provides us the opportunity to invest in the mission for the present, and for the next generation.
