New Roof for Old Mall

In Tupelo Mississippi the Gloster Creek Village mall is getting a revamp. The new owners bought the facility in June and are already making big changes.

Due to high summer temperatures followed by a hail storm the roof leaked in nearly every room of the mall. The entire 240,000 square foot roof needs to be replaced.

Chris Mills, one of the new owners said Nationwide Insurance is covering the project. Mid-Western Commercial Roofers applied a temporary roof coating to prevent further damage.

Tearing off the Roof

The crews have been on the job for about two weeks removing the old roof tar and asphalt along with any air conditioning units and vent pipes that are no longer being used. They are hoping for another 4 weeks of cooperative weather to complete the roof job.

When the damaged roof is removed the crew will install the insulation and then cover it with a 40-mil single ply Duro-Last roofing material. The Dura-Last white roof reflects 88 percent of the sun’s heat and will make the building more energy efficient.

With other newer malls to compete with in the area, Mills said the goal is to convert Gloster Creek into more of a medical and professional center.
