The much needed and sought after roofing contractor came on site to install the shingled roof and the PVC roof on the curved roof over the conference room. It was a hectic few days as there were a few issues and questions but we got through that. Phase 1 was to roof over the classroom wing, 1/2 of the roof over the Narthex and roof the fellowship hall.
The entire roof was covered 1st with ice and water shield and then a layer of felt paper over that. Wood had to be cut like a wedge to be installed at the ridge in order for the ridge vents not to leak as the roof pitch is not very steep. Plywood had to be put down on the top rows of the fellowship roof as the existing insulation was insufficient to nail into. That was a change order but we had to do it or the roof would fail.
Roofers worked long days and completed phase 1 in 3 days which was really impressive. Take note of the roofer carrying a sheet of plywood up the ladder with the plywood on his back!
Based on product availability (color and style) we insisted that all materials be purchased at one time and be delivered on-site. So there will be no product issues when phase 2 takes place. Plus we locked in the current rate for the materials.
The HVAC contractor was on-site for the first time and started installing duct work in the attic. We expect more work in the upcoming weeks.
BGE was on-site and installed all new power wires from the pole to the building. Made all of the connections inside the building and installed a new meter. Power was restored to the building.
