Roof Renewal for Sporting Complex

Published on 16 February 2024


Improved energy efficiency and repair of existing roof condition issues for the Mansfield Sporting Complex are among the benefits of a recent roof renewal completed by Council in January.

The project focussed on the oldest part of the building, where the flat roof profile increases the likelihood of water-related issues. This section includes the Complex’s changerooms, drama room and gym, and had long been affected by leaks during wet weather.

Council’s renewal works included pressure-cleaning, repairing holes and gaps, replacing skylight covers and repainting with a heat-reflective waterproofing membrane.

The works were included in Council’s 2023-24 Budget for capital works as repairs had been undertaken over many years, and recent unprecedented rain events have only highlighted the need for more comprehensive roof renewal.

The works completed will protect the roof from rust and prevent water penetration into building services such as air-conditioning, leading to lower maintenance costs in the future. The new heat-reflective membrane installed will reduce the building’s cooling costs and environmental impact.

“It’s important to us that clubs and community members can be proud of their sporting facilities,” said Mayor Cr Steve Rabie.

“This renewal project will result in a better experience for users of the Sporting Complex, and was a very cost effective solution, saving money for ratepayers.”

“We look forward to seeing our community members and kids making the most of this facility,” he said.

Council engaged TopCoat Home Improvements to undertake the $35,000 project, funded from Council’s Capital Works budget.
