Halifax-Bedford Barge Roof Installation by Above the Rest Permanent Roofing Systems.

One of the most interesting metal roof installations complete by Above the Rest can be seen while crossing the either Bridges in Halifax or by driving down the Bedford highway. As many of us in Nova Scotia are aware, the ocean conditions in both the Halifax Harbour and Bedford basin can be severe. High winds funnel down through the basin creating extreme weather conditions. The Altantic Acoustic Calibriation Barge has seen severe storms and many a hurricane since Above the Rest installed its metal roof.
