Lorain, Ohio (August 16, 2019) – The Lorain Palace Theatre, built in 1928 and renovated in 1977, was having multiple leaks from an underperforming roofing system. To preserve the building, Dan Kelley reached out to local commercial roofing contractor, West Roofing Systems out of LaGrange, Ohio for help.

“We were having leaks behind some of the vertical walls, which was deteriorating our building” says Dan Kelley. “With your company’s reputation and longevity in our area, and the fact you’ve done other entities just like ours, like Playhouse Square, that gives us that vote of encouragement, and of course we want it done this year, so with our vetting process, the time narrowed and we’re ready to move forward, and of course Jack did a good job working with us too.”

West Roofing Systems will begin the project in the fall of 2019.

“We believe in building the best for our customers and more importantly our community,” said Jack Moore, President/CEO of West Roofing Systems. “We are honored to be able to help an iconic building continue its legendary and historic operations here in northern Ohio.”

The Spray Polyurethane Foam roofing system is projected to cost more than $200,000, the largest renovation in the history of the theatre.
