High school middle school roofing project bids approved

The Prior Lake-Savage Area School Board approved bid results for roof improvement projects at both Twin Oaks Middle School and Prior Lake High School. McPhillips Brothers Roofing and Schwickerts/Tecta America were identified as the lowest responsible bidders for the projects. Director of Operations Transportation Health and Safety Jim Dellwo presented the results of the bidding process recommending McPhillips Brothers Roofing's $1.8 million cold process roofing project for the high school which might reduce any strong odors during the roofing process. With the size of the project we thought we would use that alternate as our base because if we extend into the school year which is a possibility depending on the weather the low odor would be great for the building Dellwo said. The board also approved a $138000 bid from Schwickerts/Tecta America to work on the Twin Oaks Middle School penthouse panels.

What Roofing Material Is Best for Santa to Land His Sleigh?

Anecdotal evidence suggests that ole Saint Nick is the Chesley Sullenberger of sleigh pilots. He can put that baby down safely on just about anything. Some say it's magic. We're more inclined to chalk it up to his three tours as a medevac pilot in 'Nam. Either way, few roofs make for an ideal LZ.

First off, the whole shebang—sleigh, flying ungulates, sacks of toys, Santa himself—weighs a ton. Actually, more like north of 60,000 tons, which is the estimated weight of the gifts alone, according to NORAD, which famously tracks Santa as he makes his Christmas Eve rounds. Moreover, says NORAD's Preston Schlachter, Father Christmas packs on an additional 1,000 pounds of body weight over the course of the evening—"Just on cookies and milk and yummy snacks."

Suffice it to say that the perfect roof would require some very particular engineering. Mark Graham, vice president of technical services for the National Roofing Contractors Association, says brittle materials like slate or clay tiles are obvious no-nos. Even asphalt shingles will break when frozen. Then you have the load-bearing problem. Santa wants to slide nice and easy down your chimney, not crash through your home and wind up in your basement. "A conventional roof system on a house is designed for 20 pounds per square foot of what we refer to as snow load," says Graham. "That's a far cry underneath the 60,000 tons." There's also the slip-and-fall factor. Take all this together and you're looking at a commercial-style flat or "low slope" roof, consisting of a concrete structural deck with a waterproof membrane, topped with concrete pavers, polyurethane foam, or even poured concrete, suggests Graham. Unfortunately, this could get expensive and still might not bear the weight. "I don't mean to be glib about it but the only thing we could really do is suggest Santa land in the driveway or the yard. The roof, although we'd like to have him stop by, is probably not the best place for him to be," Graham says. "I hope I don't get on the naughty list for saying that."

Lon Smith Roofings New Years Resolution to Help Veterans

FORT WORTH Texas Dec. 20 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- More than 1.6 million veterans call Texas home. And this holiday season there are 1.6 million Texans who are all searching for something. Many are searching for a job; others searching for better medical care; some searching for a place to live. But all are searching for ways to improve their lives. As we head into the Christmas season and a new year now is the time to think about what our veterans have done for us and how much we can do for them. At Lon Smith Roofing we are committed to honoring those who have honored us with their service. Earlier this year we began a partnership with the George W. Bush Institute to do our part to help veterans. The Bush Institute is one of the leading organizations in the country when it comes to not only helping veterans but also researching and understanding them. The Bush Institute believes that one of the best ways to help veterans is to understand who they are and what they are dealing with. As the Institute notes "Research shows a civilian-military divide: 71% of Americans say they have little understanding of the issues facing post-9/11 veterans. And veterans agree: 84% say that the public has 'little awareness' of the issues facing them and their families." So for 2017 our New Year's Resolution at Lon Smith will be to try even harder to understand our heroes and the challenges they face. And part of that is our continued commitment to our Roof for Vets program. This is a program we began where we take nominations from the public for worthy veterans and then select one veteran each quarter. The winner receives a free roof installation. As we head into 2017 we are again asking for nominations. If you know a veteran in need give us a call. We believe that any and everything we can do to honor our vets helps make a difference. Touching 1.6 million veterans may seem impossible; but every journey begins with a first step. And at Lon Smith Roofing we believe the first step is using our expertise to help veterans. We know roofing; and so we are going to continue to offer the Roof for Vets program. And we challenge others to think about their expertise and how it can be used to help veterans. Just think of all the ways that various Texans could help out: lawyers could offer free legal advice; doctors could offer discounted medical services; and business owners could offer jobs. This is the way we reach 1.6 million veterans in 2017by working together. So as we celebrate the Holidays think about the veterans who have helped secure our freedom. Say a prayer for them. Then look for ways to help them in 2017. And if you can't find a way to help then think of a veteran you know who may be in need and call us at Lon Smith Roofing. We can take it from there.
