Roof Projects Upgrade District Facilities

Recently, the district completed several significant roof upgrades, including:

Preston Elementary:

A thermal scan was completed, discovering that roof Sections A and B were saturated with water. The existing roof had two roofs that had to be completely removed to the concrete deck. New insulation, perimeter metal and a 2-ply roof system in hot asphalt were installed. The district received a 30-year no-dollar limit warranty on this roof.

Richardson Elementary:

A thermal scan of section A was completed and found that minimal moisture was present in the roof system (allowing it to be a candidate for restoration and not have to be completely removed). The gravel was vacuumed off the roof, and wet insulation was removed. New insulation was installed to match the existing roof, and all perimeter flashing were reinforced. Finally, the roof was primed, with a restoration coating applied and new gravel blown in place.

Price Elementary:

A scan showed that a small section (4,300 square feet) of the roof was 80% wet and needed to be torn off and replaced. New insulation and 2-ply roof system was installed in hot asphalt. All new edge metal was installed and a 30-year no-dollar warranty was issued. 

Schnee Learning Center:

Three feet of wet insulation on each side of each sawtooth valley was removed down to the concrete deck and replaced with new insulation. Then, a new membrane was installed over the insulation. Also, new drain inserts were installed in the area. The old cap and flashing from the old expansion joint were removed and replaced with new. Finally, a 20x15 wet section of the roof was removed, replaced and resealed.
