Arena Roof Surface Replacement in Wellesley
Wellesley Arena in the Township of Wellesley is a busy community facility, home to an ice rink, fitness centre, skate park, meeting rooms and more.
The arena is more than 40 years old and has had ongoing problems with its roof. Federal Gas Tax funding was invested in replacing the roof, including coating and removal of the interior ceiling and insulation.
If this work had not been done, the municipality would have had to close the facility due to structural concerns identified by two independent engineering firms. The roof was leaking and the weight of the insulation, which was by now absorbing large amounts of water, was deemed a hazard.
The federal Gas Tax-funded work has extended the life of this busy community asset.
