James City County Recreation Center Roof Replacement

October 2015

Scope of Work

This project consists of replacing approximately 12,000 square feet of the existing flat roof system over the James City County Recreation Center expansion. The flat roof system over the original building was replaced in 2008. The existing EPDM roof system and insulation will be removed and replaced with PVC roof system and insulation. As part of this project, the roof system will be brought up to current code requirements for overflow systems and insulation. Additional work has been added under separate contract to repair leaky window flashing in a curved window over the lobby.

Status of Project

Hudson and Associates Architects prepared the design of the demolition and replacement of the existing roofing system. Starburst Roofing company was awarded the contract to replace the roof and mobilized to the site in March following the snow and rain. Membrane roofing has been installed over the all areas of the roof in the contract. A punch list walk through was performed on June 30. Punch list items should be complete mid-July. The curved skylight flashing repair was awarded as a separate project and was awarded to Roof Services company. The skylight flashing repair was completed in January 2015. Subsequent rain storms have revealed that some minor leaks remain but, are associated with the windows themselves. Quotes have been solicited to reseal the windows.  No leaks have been present during smaller rainfall events but, during heavy rains it appears cracks in the vertical Exterior Insulated Finishing System (EIFS).  Repair and sealing of the EIFS has been added to the roofing contract with Starburst Construction.
