NOTICE TO ACCEPT BIDS The Heritage Museum's Board of Directors is re-advertising to accept bids through October 17, 2021, to replace the 15,620 square foot metal roof and roof framework on the 12-sided federally listed historical log building located at 34067 U.S. Highway 2. Bidders should note that there are significant changes from the first advertisement and General Requirements Package. Bids must be emailed to heritagemuseum@frontier.com or be postmarked by October 17, 2021, and mailed to The Heritage Museum, Attn: Bid, P.O. Box 628, Libby, MT 59923. Bids will be opened at The Heritage Museum at 10 a.m. on October 18, 2021. The roof replacement project is state funded, in part, through a Montana Historic Preservation Grant (MHPG) and the winning bid contractor will be required to pay Montana State prevailing wages and be Davis-Bacon wage compliant. Bidders must be licensed general or roofing contractors in the State of Montana, bonded, and insured. The contract term will be from award date until November 30, 2022. The roof consists of 12 pie-shaped sections 50 feet in length (lower roof) and 12 pie-shaped sections 15-feet in length (tower roof). The project should be completed in 6-8 consecutive weeks beginning to end of project (dependent upon weather). The new roof will rest on the original tongue and groove boards which form the ceiling inside the building and rest on the building's whole log roof rafters. The bidder will be responsible for removal of the existing metal roof, framing, and fascia. The Museum will retain ownership of and will decide disposition of removed roofing materials. The new roof must consist of 30-year titanium underlayment; 2" x 4" framing laid flat for foam insulation gap; 2" X 6" rafter wood framing on top; 5/8" sheets of OSB or comparable sub sheathing; another layer of 30-year titanium underlayment with ice shield underlayment on eaves; roof venting consisting of 3" round vents every 2' under soffit, color brown; 5" of 2 lb. spray foam including 3" in eaves (inside framing - not visible on exterior - just for added protection); topped with new brown 24-26 standard gauge metal sheeting including eave, ridge (includes breathable foam under ridge gap trim on upper part of each roof section), and all applicable trim in Standard Classic Style, new construction industry standard screws and screw spacing, and installation of cedar board fascia (provided by the Museum) beneath the roof all around the building on both levels. Bidders must provide a list of any proposed subcontractors to be used under the roof replacement contract.
