Roofing work planned for Parker Town Hall | News

The Town of Parker will be having more repair work on the roofs of town buildings. At the April 19 Town Council meeting, the Public Works Department was authorized to hire Priority Roofing of Sun City West to replace the roof section over Town Hall and the Council Chambers at a cost of $63,350.

In a memo to the Council, Public Works Director Steve Ziegler said the section to be replaced leaks so badly, the water runs down the walls when it rains.

“This will be another step towards eliminating any potential mold issues with water intrusion into the building,” he said.

Ziegler said the work would involve removing the roof down to the plywood deck. Any damaged plywood would be removed, with the Town supplying the plywood. A poly insulation board will be used to cover the plywood deck. A new roofing membrane will be laid over the insulation board.

In addition to supplying the plywood, Ziegler said the town would remove the old antennas and remove any abandoned conduit and roof vents that are no longer used.

The new roof will have a 10-year installation warranty and a 20-year manufacturer’s warranty.

Three contractors visited the site and offered proposals. Of these, Priority Roofing had the lowest estimate. Prime Waterproofing and Roofing, Inc. of Parker offered an estimate of $78,000, while Classic Roofing of Phoenix made an offer of $92,760.

This is a continuation of the roof work that has been underway in recent years. The Town has replaced sections of roofing at the Parker Public Library and the Parker Community/Senior Center.

Ziegler said that, since 2016, the Town had been replacing the roof sections at the Library, the Community/Senior Center, and the Parker Police Department. He added the work was done according to priority, with the most serious sections being done first. The plan was to replace a section each year so they would not put a strain on the town’s finances.

Ziegler said $57,800 was budgeted for this project in the Capital Budget for fiscal year 2021-22. The $5,500 will come from a proposed project at Western Park that Ziegler said he had not been able to secure a grant for. This project would have replaced the basketball courts and made the sidewalks compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
