LOMPOC, Calif. - Lompoc Senior Civil Engineer Craig Dierling was one of the few that had a look inside the Lompoc Theater on November 14th to see how the building looked structurally. As he walked through the inside, Dierling says he was concerned over water damage on the walls. When he accessed the roof from the second floor, he saw portions of roofing cracked and peeling off.
Dierling presented the pictures of the damage and recommended the roof be replaced to the Lompoc city council earlier this week. The presentation that Dierling gave showed pictures of 5 separate roofs on the building. The different roofs could add complexity to the situation.
"The cost of re-roofing this building will largely depend on how many of the 5 different roofs are addressed," said Dierling.
At the city council meeting, Lompoc decided to hire structural engineer Fred Schott for $8,000 to do a structural investigation and provide a report explaining his recommendation for how the city proceed with fixing the damaged building.
"We won't have all the answers, but we will have substantially more information than we do right now," said Dierling.
Dierling couldn't give an estimate on how much a new roof would cost but did offer this comparison: the Lompoc library will be getting a new roof soon and according to Dierling the library is twice the square footage of the theater. The budget for the new library roof is $650,000.
