G F Sprague's in-house training will provide you hands-on experience with state-of-the-art equipment. our training center, "The GF Sprague School of Design & Craftsmanship." Our new designers and apprentices train and practice on this roof mock-up and not your home. We believe that the training of our craftsmen and designers translates into simply better projects with zero defects. In turn, high skill leads to happy customers.

For decades GF Sprague has done what other roofing companies don't; we invest our employees through training. We transform an individual from "green" (unskilled) to "gold" (master skilled) and unlock their true potential. It's gratifying to witness someone who knew virtually nothing about our trades become a professional apprentice, master craftsmen, and project manager through our training.

This Roof mock-up is where our talented Craftsmen(Gold) pass their knowledge and skills to the next (Green) generation of Craftsmen. The roof mock-up and classroom are located in our heated facility at 45 Kearney Rd, Needham. We teach our craftsmen and designers proper design, material selection, and installation skills to build each job right the 1st time. Under the same roof is our sheet metal shop affectionately known as the "Fab Lab." This is where we fabricate virtually all roof panels, flashings, gutters, and downspouts designed to protect against New England's brutal storms. Here is where we teach the refined skill and art of "Coppersmithing ." Our apprentices practice how to custom fit and solder the copperwork to look great, protect the roof, and last for a long time. We designed our rooftop mock-up to replicate most of the elements found on homes, condos, and institutions.
In addition, G F Sprague's scheduling ensures you will always have sufficient time to evaluate and fix the problem entirely. You are never alone. G F Sprague's team of nearly 100 experienced technicians creates an in-the-field network you can always rely on towards your development.
