Replacing the aging Pleasant Township Fire Department roof was discussed at the July 14 board of trustees meeting.
According to Jamy Leonetti, with Damschroder Roofing, the roof is currently experiencing corrosion. The joints are loose and the fasteners are coming out.
Leonetti said his company could retrofit the roof with a Duro-Last membrane roof. The roof would be well insulated and would have the potential of cutting both heating and cooling costs and would be custom fitted to the current structure.
The Duro-Last membrane is known to be a strong material which can withstand high traffic. Replacing the current downspouts and gutters would also be completed within this project.
This project includes a 20-year warranty to cover both the work and the materials. The project would take between 5 to 7 days to complete and would cost approximately $36,000.
The trustees plan to review this project and discuss it further at the next board meeting, scheduled for July 28 at 7 p.m.
