Local contractor wins roofing bid

Mainline Roofing of Williams Lake has been awarded the tender to replace the roof over both arenas at the Cariboo Memorial Complex.

The city received two bids that met specific requirements — $478,400 from Mainline and $526,150 from Top Line Roofing of Victoria.

“It’s good to see a bid come in from a local company,” Acting Mayor Sue Zacharias said.

Coun. Laurie Walters said the roof has to be replaced.

“We’re absolutely at our max in terms of having to get this roof replaced or we’ll have more trouble with it,” she said.

Overall the accepted bid is slightly over budget by $3,400.

Funding for the project is provided through the Cariboo Regional District.

The roof replacement will result in the removal and disposal of the existing drain rock roof ballast, IRMA roof insulation, CT insulation parapet panels, filter fabric and sheet metal flashing.

The new roof will consist of two layers of two inch polyisocyanurate insulation; one layer of two inch  polyisocyanurate insulation to parapet walls; one layer of asphaltic overlay board; a torch-welded two ply roof membrane; one quarter inch fiberglass reinforced gypsum roof overlay board and new perimeter sheet metal flashings.
