New roof for Spring Lake Park City Hall

Spring Lake Park City Hall and its north garage are getting new roofs.

The council in a 4-0 vote approved the hiring of low-bidder Mint Roofing of Long Lake to replace the rubber roof.

“These roofs have been on for over 20 years,” said Terry Randall, public works director, at the June 17 city council meeting. “I’ve had these roofs patched and prodded and everything else in order to keep them from leaking.”

Three companies the city has worked with previously submitted bids. Rosenquist Construction came in at $98,100 and Roof Tech at $78,750.

Mint Roofing will replace the roof with a 60-mil rubber membrane for $71,490.

The work will come with a 10-year warranty on new roofing materials and labor.

Randall said he looked into an asphalt and rock roof, but costs came in 50 percent higher than a rubber one.

Costs for the roof will be paid from the city’s building renewal and replacement fund. The fund balance as of the June 17 meeting was at $145,204.09, Randall said.

Councilmember Larry Raymond asked if the city had followed up on possible damage to the roof from the November 2012 hail storm.

“Well, this has been leaking for numerous years,” Randall said.

Work on the roofs is slated to begin within the next 30 days and should take about one week, according to Randall.

Councilmember Bill Nash was not in attendance at the meeting.
