HLWW School Board considering roof maintenance plan


Howard Lake-Waverly-Winsted School Board viewed a presentation about a preventative roof maintenance package from Shane Burns of Schwikerts.

Burns stressed the importance of roof maintenance and the amount of money it can save in the future.

Schwikerts provides an analysis schedule for the roof and other areas, such as windows, that may begin to leak over time.

As part of the contract, they will repair areas that have the potential to leak or have experienced weathering, according to Burns.

“Our existing roofs are a minimum of five years old,” Superintendent Brad Sellner said.

The cost of the preventative maintenance package would be about $9,000 for the first year, and $5,000 to $6,000 for the remaining years of service, according to Sellner.

Previously, one-third of the roof at the middle school had to be replaced and cost the school about $200,000, according to Sellner.

A small section of the Winsted Elementary roof cost about $75,000 to replace, he said also.

“Flat roofs in Minnesota take on a lot of damage due to the weight of the snow and the constant freeze and thaw cycles in the winter months,” Sellner commented.
