Remote Island Roof Replacement By Versico Roofing Systems
Mission Point Resort ’ s roof was 50 years old , at the end of its usable life , and needed to be replaced . The new roof needed to withstand Michigan ’ s harsh winter weather and be able to handle a large volume of foot and bicycle traffic and horsedrawn wagons since motor vehicles are not allowed on the island . These restrictions and harsh weather conditions would also make the installation of the new roof quite a challenge .
Once the roofing system was removed , it required 16 round trip ferry crossing to St . Ignace where it was transported another 18 miles to the designated disposal spot across the Mackinac Bridge . The delivery of the new materials required 32 round trips on the ferry . Two hundred wagons were also needed to transport the materials from Mission Point Resort ’ s loading dock to the installation site .
Most of the project was finished by December 2019 , leaving just a few details to be finalized in the spring . Once the project was complete , a 20-year , 55-mph wind speed Total System Warranty was issued , in addition to a Paver Overburden Warranty . These warranties ensured that Mission Point Resort ’ s roofing system would keep their guests dry and protected for many years to come .
