The Apartments ROOF REPAIR Project

When we started planning The Gardens on Tenth, we had an engineering firm assess the condition of The Apartments (formerly Ebenezer). They reported that structurally the building had many years of life left, however ongoing maintenance would be required.

Among other issues we have been repairing a leaking roof for many years. This being costly and inconvenient for both residents and staff, the decision was made to replace the roof.

After a lot of research and getting quotes, the contract was awarded to Urecoat Roofing a roofing contractor out of Winnipeg. The new roof will consist of 2” spray-on foam insulation (R12) covered with a 75mil spray-on aluminium polyurea. This company and their product have been used locally by Golden West as well as the Town of Altona on some of their buildings. They all highly recommend this system even after several years and hail going through the area.

If there are no unforeseen surprises cost should be slightly less then $100,000 for which fund-raising is ongoing. We welcome your financial support in this project. To donate, please click on the donate button below and designate your gift to The Apartments Roof Repair. Pledges over a period of two or three years would also be gratefully accepted. To arrange this, please contact us at (204)324-8945 or email email hidden; JavaScript is required. Tax deductible receipt available.
