The Ceres City Council last week approved spending up to $247,490 to reroof Ceres City Hall and the American Legion Hall buildings.
The city requested bids from local roofing contractors to include preparing the existing roofing system for re-roofing and providing and installing new roofing product with a minimum 20-year warranty. Only four local roofing contractors were contacted and only two responded. Tru-Tech Roofing of Modesto was the lowest responsive and responsible bid in the amount of $119,995 for the City Hall building and $104,995 for the American Legion Hall building, for a total of $224,990. A 10 percent contingency of $22,500 for unforeseen material replacement and repairs brings the project cost to $247,490.
The other bid came from King’s Roofing of Sacramento at $286,355.
