Roof membrane replacement August 28 - September 15, 2017.
On July 31st, a wind gush from Tropical Storm Emily picked up a part of the roof cover of our beachfront building and it is time to replace this membrane roof cover. The work is scheduled to start on August 28th and expected to be finished no later than September 15th. Roofers will be on property weekdays-only from 8:00am to 5:00pm.
The scope of the work is to remove the leftover membrane and to replace it. Membrane roofing is a type of roofing system used on flat or nearly flat roofs to prevent leaks and move water off the roof. Membrane roofs are most commonly made from synthetic rubber. And…. while we are at it, we will also be replacing the gutters and down sprouts.
The resort will be open as usual, all facilities are operating normal.
Interior guest room renovations August 6 - October 12, 2017.
2017 is another big year at the Outrigger Beach Resort!
Interior Guest Room renovations will begin August 6th and the first phase is scheduled to be completed by October 12th. This renovation will include our much beloved Resort View West and half of our Standard Guest Rooms. The project will be done in stages and will affect only a few rooms at a time. The workers will be on property Monday – Friday, 9am – 5pm. Some work may be done on the weekend if the contractors fall behind schedule.
Because the renovations will involve bathroom updates, limited noise is to be expected during the tiling process. We will, however, do our very best to limit any kind of interruptions during your vacation. All resort facilities are open as usual. We realize that you have many vacation opportunities to choose from and we appreciate that you are choosing the Outrigger Beach Resort!
