Roofing Size: 14,300 SF

Additional Trades: Steep Slope Roofing, Custom Parapet CAP, Custom 6” Gutteringy

Project Valuation: $113,000

Swedes Clinic in Belvidere provides healthcare services to Belvidere and Boone, Western McHenry, and Northern DeKalb Counties. As healthcare facilities do, the constant flow of patients entering an exiting multiple exits posed a logistics challenge. In order to properly prepare the project, we notified management, situated site managers and worked as much after-hours / weekend as possible.

We began by tearing off the existing roofing system to the decking. We removed and replaced all flashings and edge metals. We laid ice shield in the valleys and around the perimeter per local ordinance and installed the GAF roofing system. The re-roofing process was begun Friday after closing and completed Sunday evening.

Next we installed custom parapet capping around the nearly 800 feet of parapet walls on the property. We built a cleated parapet cap with expansion cleats and riveted corner systems. Once the parapet was complete, our metal technicians installed 1300LF of custom commercial grade 6” Box Gutters and Downspouts.
