Ladysmith Community Health Centre getting new roof

The Ladysmith Community Health Centre could be ushering in the new year with a new roof.

The Ladysmith Community Health Centre could be ushering in the new year with a new roof.

Work to replace the centre’s roof began in September, and it is nearing completion.

Facilities manager John Vassallo hopes the work will be done by the end of this year.

“It’s a project that was long overdue,” he said. “It is almost done. It should be done by the end of this year or into January — I’m certainly hoping it will be done by the end of this year.”

The old tar and gravel roof is being replaced with a torch on roof, which Vassallo says is much better.

“I think it’s good we were able to come up with the funding for a new roof to give an old building that’s serving the community a much longer life,” he said. “We’re good for many years to come now.”

The ventilation ducting on the roof is also being replaced.

“When we found we were doing the roof, we started looking at the ventilation and found it was in such bad condition, we thought we’d better replace it,” said Vassallo. “The new ventilation is more efficient. It’s insulated better, so it should be a greener installation.”
