Roofing with merit

Ruff Roofers restores multiple roof systems at Towson University

Founded in 1866 as Maryland's first training school for teachers, Towson University is recognized as a leading regional public university, offering more than 100 bachelor's, master's and doctoral degree programs in the liberal arts and sciences and applied professional fields. In 2010, U.S. News & World Report ranked Towson University No. 8 in the Public Universities—Master's category.

Located in the suburban town of Towson, 8 miles north of Baltimore, the school's 329 acres are beautifully landscaped, providing a pleasant study environment. With nearly 22,000 students, Towson University is among the largest public universities in Maryland. The college combines research-based learning with practical applications, and its many interdisciplinary partnerships with public and private organizations throughout Maryland provide opportunities for research, internships and jobs.

During the summer of 2011, two of the school's residence halls, Newell Hall and Richmond Hall, were renovated. As part of the renovations, replacement of vintage copper roofing, slate and decorative copper flashings were specified. Chosen for its reputation in the area for restoring historic roof systems, Ruff Roofers Inc., Baltimore, was selected to perform the roof system renovations.
