Leaky Roof Vents Discovered at New Municipal Center

The heavy rains last week brought minor leaks in three locations inside the recently opened municipal center, but officials said the problem has been identified and will be properly addressed.

Heavy rains brought an unexpected and not very pleasant surprise to those at the new Southington Municipal Center last week - a leaky roof.

The issue was minor, however, and town officials said the problem has already been brought to the attention of contractors who immediately identified the problem as the roof vents and replaced the faulty vents before it could cause any damage to the building.

"The issue is not a rampant problem," said Southington Town Manager Garry Brumback. "When they replaced the roof, they did not change the vents. The old vents began to leak, but the checklist was not complete and repairs have been made at no cost to the town."

Borghesi Building and Engineering and was extremely responsive to the concerns, Brumback said, and did not hesitate to look into the problem when it first occurred.

He said problems like this are not uncommon with construction and the town is more than satisfied with the response.

"Anytime you are doing a renovation project, there are going to be things you find that haven't gone as well as you hoped. The key to a successful project is being able to address them when you do and that's exactly what has been done," Brumback said.
