Local Roofing Co., Inc. was proud to be part of Cary Metra Station project the fall of 2019 by installing a Owens Corning Supreme Single System for them! Congratulations for winning a Project of the Year by the American Public Works Association’s Fox Valley Branch. See the article below feature in the NWHearld.

Cary’s new Metra station, wastewater treatment plant, win awards

Wastewater treatment plant also wins

Cary’s new Metra station recently was named one of the Projects of the Year by the American Public Works Association’s Fox Valley Branch.

Also given this award was the removal of biological phosphorus and the ultraviolet disinfection system at the village’s wastewater treatment plant.

According to the APWA’s website, the Project of the Year award was created to “promote excellence in the management and administration of public works projects” by recognizing the alliance between the managing agency, the consultant/architect/engineer, and the contractor who, working together, complete public works projects.

These awards are given in four divisions: projects less than $5 million; projects more than $5 million, but less than $25 million; projects between $25 million and $75 million; and projects more than $75 million. They also are given in five categories: structures, transportation, environment, historical restoration/preservation and disaster or emergency construction/repair.

Both Cary projects were in the award’s less than $5 million category. The wastewater treatment plant project and Metra station project won in the environment and structures categories, respectively.

According to a news release issued by village officials, the removal of the biological phosphorus and ultraviolet disinfection system at the wastewater treatment plant reduced energy use, increased automation, met or exceeded Environmental Protection Agency discharge limits for phosphorus, improved the environmental sustainability of wastewater treatment options and enhanced employee safety.

Work on the Cary wastewater treatment plant project began in September 2017 and was completed in April 2019, Director of Public Works Eric Morimoto said.

It cost $2.55 million, coming in $150,000 under budget, he said.

Morimoto said the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency recently analyzed the Fox River and determined it would be best to require all wastewater treatment plants discharging into the river to meet new regulatory phosphorus requirements. These new phosphorus limits were added to Cary’s most recent renewal of its National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System permit.

Construction on the new Metra station started in 2018, but the planning process began in 2016. It cost about $3.3 million and includes a new 1,400-square-foot station building, as well as a new 300-square-foot warming shelter on the station’s inbound platform. Boarding platforms also were replaced as part of the project.

The new station was funded with $2 million in federal capital dollars obtained by Metra and $400,000 in commuter parking lot funds from Cary. Metra paid for the new platforms, while the village paid for the relocation of utilities and fiber optic lines.

About 900 passengers board at the Cary station every weekday, according to Metra. The Union Pacific Northwest Line, which Cary is on, is Metra’s second-busiest line.

We recently contacted Craig for a quote on our 20 year old roof. He came over the same day. Craig used a high tech method of estimating our roof’s square footage giving us an instant measurement. Meanwhile, my wife and I checked two other roofing companies and Local Roofing was the most competively priced. Our biggest conundrum was choosing the correct shingle color. Craig was extremely with helpful shingle color choice. He brought dozens of full-sized shingles over to our house. Finally, we scheduled the job and about two weeks later the work began. It took a day and a half to complete the job and clean up. The workers were very diligent cleaning up the roof debris. We are very satisfied with the outcome.

Dear Kevin,

Just a note to let you know how pleased Don and I are with our new shingle roof. We were shocked that you tore down our old roof and replaced it with the new roof all in one day! Also, your suggestion of roof tile colors was so correct. We have had numerous compliments concerning the all over appearance of our house after you replaced our old roof.
Please feel free to have anyone contact us for a reference. We also were amazed at the immaculate cleanup once you were finished.
Thank you again for a job well done.

Kevin was very informative and responsive and kept a close eye on the job.  Joe kept me informed every step of the way, was nice about answering my questions, and used lots of protection which we really appreciate.  The entire crew had tremendous attention to detail and took pride in their work.  Great Job.

“Local Roofing does high quality professional work.  They showed up when they said they would, with a double crew because of threat of rain on that day.  They worked carefully but steadily and finished just as slight rain began to fall.  They replaced rotted decking, all flashing around chimneys and the kitchen vent, and added a solar-powered vent as well as Ice and water shield 6 ft. up and the new shingles.  They also added 4 roof vents at no extra charge just “because your roof needs it.”
The price was a fair one.  Previously I have had them out to fix leaks and they have been very prompt and thorough – even one winter day when the temperature was in single digits.  They have always been courteous and helpful.  They are a high quality service organization and a pleasure to deal with.”

“Jake Adams did a great job at scheduling the roofing work to fit within the week that we preferred.  He described what was to be performed, how it would work, and how many days would be required to finish the job.  Very professional.  Jake was at the site performing his functions and had me tour the repair work during and after completion.  Also, I was impressed with the techs that were doing the work.  Very neat.  Great Job!”

Ken, Jacob, Gino and Ed — the employees I had contact with –were all very professional and helpful.  I hesitate dealing with companies, preferring to deal with individuals who don’t have a corporate “attitude,” but in this case everyone I dealt with as a “person” and couldn’t have been more friendly or courteous.  I called Local Roofing because a neighbor of mine had his roof replaced and I was impressed with the quality and the speed of the work.  I will have no problems recommending you to anyone who need roofing services.”

“We had some leaking in our garage and my husband talked to Tom at Local Roofing Co., Inc..  Tom took the time to do some trouble shooting over the phone before sending out a crew (at $300.00).  Tom saved the day!  Snow had gotten into our attic during the blizzard and with the warm weather it began to melt.  We really appreciate the honesty of this company and the time Tom took with us.”

“Just a note of Thanks.  All the people that were involved in my small repair job were very competent, professional and courteous from the person who I talked with on the phone, the person who came to my house for the estimate, to the people who patched my roof, all of them were excellent.  Your company will be recommended to everyone I know.
Thank you very much

Dear Frank,
I just wanted to send a short note along with my payment for the roofing job your crew just completed. Both my wife and I are very pleased with the outcome and the way the crew actually did the work. They were quick and very neat the two days they were here and really knew how to do their jobs well as we can see from the end result. We would recommend your company to any of our friends.
Thanks again for the great job and the easy process.

Dear Local Roofing, A little later than I planned, but still sincere… On July 15th and 16th, in the midst of 90-degree heat, LRC caused a new roof to be put on our house, porch and garage. This work was done with great efficiency and diligence. The cleanup afterward was perfect.

THE PAYOFF: on July 18th, our house, garage and porch was subject to over 5” of rain in a very short period of time. More than we had in recent memory!
THE GOOD NEWS: there was not one leak!!!  You guys are good!

Dear local roofing staff,
We wanted to say thank you for putting on a new roof on our house. It is our second time using your company, and again, it was a pleasure doing business with you. All the staff who we came in contact with-Frank, Ken and Julianne were strangely helpful and professional. The roofing crew did a great job keeping our yard tidy and clean. The new roof looks great!

I just wanted to take a minute to thank you and Kevin for helping me with my roof.
I have been dealing with a few different contractors over the past several months, and you were by far the easiest to work with. You were very responsive, helpful, professional, timely, honest and accommodating.
I will definitely recommend you and your business to anyone who is inquiring about a new roof.
Thanks again!

Dear Mr Thompson

I am writing to thank you for such good service. I had a new roof placed 7/8/16 and a new skylight. It began to leak. I spoke to Michael when I called 9/6/19. He was very courteous. I also told him about a panel of the soffit had blown off. Even though this was not part of the job in 7/8/16 he told me your company could fix it. I talked with Krystie 9/17  to inform her I would be gone for a week. She was most polite and said a work order is in. Nikke called 10/11 to tell me workers would come 10/15 at 7:30am. Eddie and his helper were here right on time at 7:30am. They fixed the skylight and repaired the piece of soffit that had blown off (this was not part of the roof job). It looks perfect.

Please thank all you your. A+ job by all.I would highly recommend your company. It was so nice that I received no bill again. Thanks!

Sincerely yours,

Jean Joseph
