Dormitory — Crater Lake National Park

Crater Lake National Park has long been a busy tourist destination. Just south of the park is Mazama Village and Campground, a popular location for visitors. From June through September, the Village is bustling and a sizable workforce calls the Mazama Dormitories home. Due to the area’s extreme winter weather, the existing standing seam roofs on the dormitory had deteriorated beyond repair. Ice damming and heavy snow began pushing the metal panels apart and allowed for leaks to develop throughout the structure. 

Pressure Point Roofing, Inc. assessed the project and provided a solution. Not only were they given a tight timeline due to unpredictable weather, they also had to be mindful of the staff living in the dorms. They selected 24-gauge panels for this 18,500-square-foot reroofing. Designed to withstand rigorous weather and provide enhanced uplift resistance, the concealed fastener panels were installed over an ice/water shield underlayment to provide protection from extreme temperatures and precipitation. At the request of park management, approximately 8,000 square feet of adhered Duro-Fleece 60 mil membrane from Duro-Last was used on select areas to maintain the aesthetics of the flat surfaces.
