A report compiled by engineers hired by borough council to inspect the Coaldale Complex includes the following findings:
Roof: The 10-year-old roof is a concrete deck under rubber roofing. The engineers observed that there was significant cracking that would allow water to enter, but there were numerous soft spots on the rubber membrane. The chimney has missing bricks and cracked mortar joints, and the rubber roof membrane is improperly flashed to the brick on all sides. Caulk is being used as the main deterrent to allowing water into the chimney.
