FROM THE FILES OF THE BRANDON SUN
The Daly House will be getting renovations to its roof after the city released a tender for renovations on the historic property.
Project documents state that various areas of the roof need to be repaired, including a section on the front porch roof, the northwest annex roof and the front upper southeast area of the roof. The document also lays out the need to inspect different sections, clean drains and to “re-fill and seal existing pitch pocket locations.”
Coun. Shaun Cameron (University) sits on the city’s Municipal Heritage Advisory Committee and said in an email he is happy to see the building preserved.
“I think a project such as this where we are able to preserve the longevity of our historic buildings is extremely beneficial … We only have one chance with historical structures, so we must be cognizant to pursue proactive measures to actively preserve it.”
Eileen Trott, the curator of the museum, said she didn’t have any additional details on the renovations when reached on Thursday.
The tender closes on May 3 and a company has not been selected yet.
The preferred completion date is by June 30.
