Another Congregation Chooses ABC Seamless
When Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church in Dazey, North Dakota wanted to revitalize the building for their 125th Anniversary in September of 2009, the Board of Trustees requested bids from 3 companies. “The roof was in great need of repair. A large evergreen had fallen on it during a wind storm back in 2007,” said Philip Quick, Our Saviour’s Treasurer.
Dazey, North Dakota was established in 1883 by a group of hard-working Scandinavian settlers, mostly from Norway who farmed grains in the rich, fertile soil of Barnes County. Today, the community is home to around 100 poeple, primarily farmers and their families raising grains, beans and corn. Our Saviour’s congregation first organized in 1884 and the church that stands today was built in 1902. In the 107 years since it was built, the church’s wood siding had been repainted numerous times. The narthex addition at the entrance had 2 windows that needed replacement as well.
ABC Seamless has been trusted to protect houses of worship across the country for more than 35 years. Nationwide we have installed seamless steel siding and gutters, and replaced windows for more than 600 churches in 35 States. When the Board of Trustees at Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church asked us to present our services, we sent Steve Kelley to represent our products, and Jim Burgard to represent the installation process.
“The Dazey project was bigger than just a roofing project, the Church was looking at fixing the building to last a lifetime,” said Steve Kelley, the ABC Seamless sales consultant for this project. ABC Seamless addressed the Church’s primary problem by offering a high-performance steel shingle roof that provides protection from hail, fire, wind, snow and rain. Our steel roof is protected by a lifetime, non-prorated limited warranty with hail and fade protection. The color that the members chose also meets EnergyStar performance standards, ensuring that the building will be heated and cooled with maximum efficiency.
ABC Seamless proposed an all-steel exterior for the church for protection and longevity, bringing maintenance-free seamless steel siding and gutters into the discussion. Their EnergyStar siding underlayment insulates the Church from icy winter winds that chill interior walls.
Of the three companies that Philip and the remodeling committee started working with, ABC Seamless and another company put in comparable bids. One of the companies never replied to the bid request. Overall, ABC Seamless was best prepared to take care of all the project specifications for the Church in Dazey and was granted the work.
“It was important that the remodeling was completed before our 125th Anniversary celeration. The installers really put in some long days,” said Philip. The Church project was completed in plenty of time for the celebration. “Everyone is very happy with the final look.” It wasn’t long before word spread throughout the area and members of other Churches came to see the work.
