South Wall Repairs (continued):

The South Wall Project began Friday, September 15, 2017 under the watchful eye of the YMCA of Pierce and Kitsap Counties and contracting partner, J.C. Richard Construction Company. The need to reinforce and replace the South 13th street wall came about due to severely under-inforced structuring and sagging paneling. Overall, the wall presented serious mold and bubbling issues to the interior of our building and was a safety concern for the YMCA. The extensive renovation was scheduled to be completed by November 24, 2017 and was complete in total on Friday, November 17, 2017. One week ahead of schedule, all inspections passed and work was complete. The 10-week renvoation included: demolition of the old wall covering, removal of any mold that was found due to water damange, and installation of protective measures to prevent future mold from growing and spreading. J.C. Richards also identified and removed any damaged wood from the framing that is part of the south wall construct. Once old materials were removed and replaced, the new wall covering, EFIS (Exterior Insulation and Finish Systems) was applied. The application included: an optional water-resistive barrier adhesive (in some cases mechanical fasteners may be used), foam insulation board, base coat, reinforcement mesh, and finish, a textured finish coat that is decorative and protective. Thank you to the diligence of our Maintenace Staff and J.C. Richards Construction for not only completing an extremely difficult job, but doing so a week ahead of schedule!
