Council to spend $33,800 on roof repair to ES building

Monday, August 25, 2014

By KEN BRADLEY - Staff Writer

Rocky Mount Town Council will spend $33,800 to make roof repairs to the emergency services (ES) building on North Main Street that houses the town's volunteer fire and police departments.

Since 2001 when the building was completed, it has experienced repeated leaks, damaging drywall and ceilings, as well as other issues from water infiltration, according to Assistant Town Manager Matt Hankins.

Most of the leaks on the police department side of the building have been resolved, Hankins said, but the fire department continues to have serious roof leaks and drywall damage.

Town council has hired McNeil Roofing Inc. to make the necessary repairs to the fire department roof and walls.

The scope of work will include repairs to the walls of the kitchen and meeting room area, work on the truck bay roof that includes installing rubber wall flashings and metal flashings, and needed caulking on the metal roof and flashings.

Work in the main roof area will include removing existing gutters on both sides to expose the soffit, installing flashings on the soffit, reflashing all pipes in the metal roof, reinstalling gutters, flashing the back left corner of roof between panel and wall, and checking all seams in metal roof and flashings and caulking as needed.

The work will have a two-year warranty on all repairs.

The approximate start date on the project is Sept. 8.

Repairs to the building are included in the town's current capital budget.
