The owners of The Villages at Quail Run could not catch a break. During the winter of 2011, severe ice dams caused a million dollars worth of damages at the over-55 townhouse community in Hudson, Mass. That spring, engineers advised the association to replace the roofs on all of its 23 buildings. And finally, the entire roofing job — a massive project requiring 3,200 squares of shingles — needed to be done by November, or the association would lose its insurance coverage.
“This was a multi-million dollar roofing project which would normally require about six months of construction,” says senior property manager Cathy Birnbrich of Alpine Property Management. “Quail Run needed a contractor with the experience and resources to get the job done in half that time.”
