Pegram Associates Inc. is the architect for two YMCA projects currently under construction in Myrtle Beach and Georgetown County, South Carolina. During the Construction documents phase, Spann Roofing was called in to our office to consult on the different details associated with the standing seam metal, concrete tile, and built-up roofing that were scheduled to be used on the design of the two facilities. The primary reason that were sought was that Spann Roofing has a long standing reputation in the Myrtle Beach area as being the premier company performing roofing work in this vicinity. Sammy and Tripp Spann came to our office and they both offered many suggestions on common materials and simple details that were thought to be good ideas and subsequently incorporated into the projects.
Both projects were competitively bid and the construction contract for both buildings was awarded to a local General Contractor. We were pleasantly surprised to find out that Spann Roofing was going to be the roofer on both projects. The GC had privately indicated to us after the bid that he has had experiences with other out-of-town roofers and that it was “better for the project with Spann.” Needless to say we were relieved as architects due to the fact that one of the main call-back issues with owners is with roof leaks. It is considered common knowledge in the local construction industry that, when Spann Roofing is involved, there is a comfort in knowing that they will “do it right” the first time and, if there is a problem, will be prompt in correcting it.
Based on our 30 plus years of experience with Spann Roofing, we would not be hesitant in recommending them to our clients.
