During the early morning hours of Thursday, August 25, 2011, Northeast Ohio endured a storm with heavy rain and wind that resulted in a tornado touching down in Chesterland, Ohio. The town suffered damage to many of its buildings and homes, including the Giant Eagle grocery store at the West Geauga Plaza that had its roof caved in, aluminum siding on the right side destroyed and a 5-foot clock tower blown off into another business' parking lot.
The Giant Eagle needed the rooftop cupola and siding repaired as soon as possible to enable the store to regain power and open again. Precision ProCut received an emergency response call that day from general contracting company, FMS Construction, and traveled to the site immediately to assess the damage.
ProCut's Project Manager, Matt Marcum, led the disaster recovery team to remove the 35-foot by 35-foot roof in one piece. ProCut was able to safely remove the damaged roof for the construction to begin on Giant Eagle's new roof.
The Chesterland town and the safety first-responders, including the fire marshal, police and other local officials, all actively responded to the scene and observed ProCut remove the roof. They thanked the ProCut team for completing the tough job within a short time. The structural removal job was a unique challenge, but also a rewarding and noteworthy accomplishment for our ProCut team.
