Jemstone Properties Ready For Sale


The Kentucky Office Team of Turnkey Engineering, Construction & Roofing has replaced the roofing system for Louisville-based Jemstone Properties at 4812 Pinewood Road, Louisville. The work was part of a project to get the building ready for sale, and it is now on the market.

“My two brothers and I own three buildings near one another and last spring, and all three ended up with major hail damage and some structural damage as well,” said Ed Jewell, owner, Jemstone Properties. “Turnkey actually replaced the roof and roofing systems on my brother’s buildings and he recommended that I use Turnkey as well.”

“This was a challenging project,” said David Lewgood, vice president, Turnkey. “Our team was able to get the full estimate approved by Gemstone’s insurance company on our first submission with no issues and move forward immediately,” he added. “This helped because we had some obstacles to overcome,” Lewgood explained. “For one, we were working with a building with four different roofing styles and materials across a 24,000-square-foot roof.”

“We also made a number of suggestions to improve the building’s efficiency,” Lewgood explained. “For example, we added a number of skylights to improve the interior lighting in the building during the day and save on the building’s energy bill.”

Work on this commercial roofing project recently wrapped up. “We are especially proud to have completed this project on schedule considering the fact that we found some areas that had to be re-worked due to quality issues with one of our subcontractors,” Lewgood stated. “We identified the problem, brought it to the owner’s attention and corrected it immediately,” he added.

“We were really impressed with David and his team,” offered Jewell. “They were extremely efficient and the quality of their work was great,” he added. “And even though the issue toward the end of the project cost us a bit of time getting the building on the market, we were more than happy that the team had the integrity to bring it to our attention and fix it immediately. Ultimately, it made for a higher quality building that we are proud to have on the market. I would highly recommend David and the team at Turnkey,” Jewell added.
