Each member of our staff demonstrated the proper and correct way of wearing a harness; checked their safety ropes, and d-rings for damage.

While most people were on white sandy beaches enjoying their spring break week, our team was hard at work getting a jump start on Roswell North Elementary School. Our field crew completed a re-roof using Carlisle’s new APEEL TPO membrane on the highly sensitive Media Center. We are looking forward to working with Swofford Construction during the summer to complete the remaining portion of the re-roof  to give Fulton County School System a new watertight roof.
