When it came to installing the flat roof for the Grimes Strip Mall, Eagle Construction Group faced several specific challenges:

  1. Precise Drainage: Grimes, Iowa experiences varying weather conditions, including heavy rain and snow. Eagle had to meticulously plan the roof’s slope and drainage system to ensure efficient water runoff and prevent potential leaks.
  2. Material Selection: Choosing the right roofing material was critical, considering the region’s climate. Eagle carefully selected materials that would provide insulation and durability while staying within the project’s budget.
  3. Sealing Vulnerabilities: Flat roofs are prone to leaks, particularly at seams and roof penetrations. Eagle paid special attention to sealing these areas to guarantee a watertight roof.
  4. Local Maintenance Requirements: Grimes’ specific weather patterns and conditions meant that the roof needed to be equipped to handle any scenario. Eagle provided guidance to the mall’s management on tailored maintenance practices.
  5. Weight Distribution: The mall’s roof was designed to house HVAC units and other equipment, potentially adding substantial weight. Eagle ensured that the roof structure was engineered to handle these loads without compromise.
