2022 Chimney Work / 2016 New Roof

2016 New Metal Roof

Aerial View of the new roof


You may have noticed the construction activity at Hampton church that took place back in October-November 2016.

The sanctuary received a much needed new roof.

The asbestos shingles and two chimneys were removed and a synthetic underlayment and a new metal roof was installed.

Quality Canadian Home Improvements were hired and they worked closely with an abatement team to properly remove the asbestos shingles and ensure the safety of the workers and the community.

If you are curious about the process we’ve included some pictures below taken during construction, as you can imagine, it was quite a feat considering the height and steepness of the roof.

The cost of the new roof was an expense of $96,000. In order to cover the cost Hampton U.C. received a loan of $72,000, along with a grant of 24,000, from the larger United Church organization.

We undertook this project to preserve our connection to the heritage of the community’s founders to ensure the church can be sustainable place for the community to come together for generations to come.

2022 Chimney Repairs

When the NEW Metal Roof was done in 2016, the Chimney’s were torn down to the first brick bump out, above the roof line, and capped as seen in above photos.

Due to the continuing deterioration of the remaining top bricks in both chimneys this was allowing rain water to enter the sanctuary.

It was decided they needed to be repaired and we had “Quality Canadian Home Improvements” do the work which required a 35 foot genie boom. The work was completed in April 2022 for a total costs of $19,492.50.

As you can see from picture below the deterioration of the bricks.

For chimney repair, they tore down both chimneys approximately 3 feet below roof-line (5 feet in total).


Gradually step in courses of relaid brick to land flush with existing brickwork, allowing roof flashing to cover. Replaced two pieces of steel on either side of the roof roughly 3‘ x 12‘ where the chimney used to be
Supplied and install new wall flashing in the area where the work was completed. We had left over capping, from when new roof had been installed, they were able to use that capping to continue it down on either side.
