Commissioners to fix leaky roofs

TIFTON — Tift County Commissioners voted Monday night to have the roofs at the Tift County Sheriff's Office, the jail complex, the Administration Building and the Board of Elections building repaired or replaced.

According to Jim Carter, county manager, the roofs on each of these buildings are 25 years old or older.

"We have included monies in SPLOST V to replace said roofs," Carter wrote in an e-mail to The Gazette Wednesday. "As leaks have occurred, we have utilized our maintenance staff and roofing contractors in an effort to make repairs as needed."

Carter went on to say that the leakages have reached the point where spot repairs will no longer suffice.

The total cost of repairs and/or replacement is $418,509. The work will be done by Hall Contractors out of Norman Park.

The contractors will install Duro-Last membrane, a proprietary thermoplastic formulation that provides "exceptional flexibility, reflectivity, resistance to UV radiation and flame retardance," according to printed materials provided by Hall Contractors. The materials are energy-efficient, installed with minimum disruption, code compliant and will deliver long-term value.
