Dayus Roofing – Then & Now

After 50 years, Dayus Roofing is moving from Howard Avenue, expropriated for the new crossing. This Windsor business has been around since 1950, and luckily they aren’t packing it in. According to the sign on the Howard facade, they are moving to Halford Road in Oldcastle.

Interesting to see what’s under all the crap…

Personally I think the before looked better, I always found the complex to look kind of odd architecturally. I’m not quite sure what changing the roofline accomplished, other than giving it a “modern” (at the time) 1970’s look.
