National Park Service, Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial:
Visitor Center EPDM Roof Replacement

Lincoln City, IN

About this Project

AACON was awarded a contract to replace the EPDM roof at Visitors Center for the Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial. The roof had reached the end of its useful service life and the project specified a new 20-year Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer (EPDM) roof system. Site mobilization included pedestrian safety barricades, warning signs, a guardrail fall protection system, and landscape protection to accommodate the equipment lay down.

The Center is comprised of two main sections, The Abraham Lincoln Hall and The Nancy Lincoln Hall. AACON chose to repair each hall consecutively to manage weather conditions and insure a weather-tight, waterproof roof system. After removing the existing EPDM membrane and insulation board, the decking and insulation were inspected for potential damage and several areas were removed and replaced due to water damage. New insulation board was then installed in preparation of the new EPDM membrane. Due to the time of year, any area of the exposed roof required a weather-tight condition at the end of each workday. The importance of keeping the structure weather-tight was of the upmost importance to the NPS due to the historic furnishings located within the interior of the visitor center. After the new EPDM membrane was installed to specification, the final step to completing the new roofs was to install new copper flashing and re-install the copper panel fasteners and solder new caps over the heads of the fasteners.
