For 2nd time in 7 years, PTC Library gets new roof
Contractors worked Thursday night on installing a new roof system for the Peachtree City Library, the second time in seven years the roof has been replaced. Cost to the city is $261,000, part of the bond proceeds from a $3 million facilities improvement bond issued last year. The city got a state grant of $100,000 to go toward the project. The council learned earlier this year about more than a dozen holes in the roof and multiple repair spots, including one spot that had developed a second hole. Tests showed that moisture has intruded through the roof into the top layer of insulation in seven areas. The company that installed the roof seven years ago is no longer in business, leaving the city no recourse but to eat the cost and replace the roof out of city funds. Photo/John Munford.
