HIT receives new roof


May 14, 2018


Ironwood — The Historic Ironwood Theatre needed a new roof. The theatre sought grants and donations, with the Downtown Ironwood Development Authority providing one $2,500 donation and another $2,500 in matching funds to encourage others to match, dollar for dollar up to $2,500.

All winter the theatre raised funds to replace the roof and over the last five days, the old roof was removed and the new roof installed, with completion actually expected today.

Bruce Greenhill, theatre operations manager said, “When the old roof was removed we were able to confirm that there was just one quarter of an inch of insulation under the roof membrane. The new roof includes the installation of four inches of insulation under the Durolast vinyl. We should realize significant savings in our energy costs next winter.”

Greenhill added the Nasi roofing crew did, “a great job. They worked safely, diligently, and put in some long days to get the job done as quickly as possible with minimum interruption to theatre operations.”
