In today’s Project Spotlight, we’re taking a look at a church roof replacement our team completed here in San Antonio in 2022, in the height of supply chain shortages. See how our team came through!
Background and Client: San Antonio LDS Church
Our client for this project was an LDS church located here in San Antonio. Church leadership was looking for a roof contractor to replace their roofing system, and because the roof was self-insured, there were specialized requirements we needed to follow.
During the bidding process, roofers had to be invited in order to submit bids, and Dolan Roofing was among the candidates. We were able to provide a very competitive bid for this project thanks to our relationships within the roofing industry, and as a result, we were the chosen roof contractor for this church roofing project.
The Project: Full Church Roof Replacement
For this project, our team was to fully replace the roof of the church according to very rigid specifications. After consulting with an architect prior to the project and our team during the planning phase, church leadership chose impact-resistant shingles due to the unpredictable weather we face here in San Antonio.
The roof would use an entirely impact-resistant Owens Corning roofing system, along with Owens Corning WeatherLock® Flex Flexible Self-Sealing Ice & Water Barrier for the eaves and rakes of the roof. This product is highly effective at waterproofing, which was a big upgrade for this roofing system.
In addition to the unique bidding process and the precise planning required to meet the needs of their unique insurance situation, this project was also completed during the height of materials shortages. Because the church self insures, rather than depending on traditional coverage, there was a wide variety of specifications provided by the church leadership team to ensure the new roof would be completed to an extremely high standard and last for many years to come. Ultimately they needed to be confident that they were getting the best value for their investment. Additionally, they were eager to complete the project on a fairly tight timeline, which would be difficult given the availability of materials at the time.
Access was also a challenge due to the design of this roofing system. The Dolan team would need to think creatively in order to stage materials and get them up onto the roof for installation.
In the end, the Dolan Roofing team came together beautifully to complete this project. We designated a staging area and rented specialized forklifts to transport and load materials onto the roof.
As for acquiring those materials in the first place, this is where our industry experience came in! Being in the roofing industry for a long time grants several unique benefits, including close working relationships with manufacturers and distributors. Our relationship with both Lowe’s and Owens Corning enabled us to get the materials we needed when we needed, in spite of ongoing delays and materials shortages. This helped us to stay very close to the original timeline and avoid major delays to the project.
The end result was a beautiful new roof for this church and clients who were very satisfied with their choice of roof contractor.
