Woodward Middle School to get new roof

The Bainbridge Island School District has picked Meyer Brothers Roofing and Sheet Metal, Inc. as the contractor for the roof replacement project at Woodward Middle School.

The company, based in Kent, submitted a base bid of $1,010,941.

Other bidders included Wayne's Roofing, Inc. and COBRA Building Envelope Contractors.

Construction will begin June 30 and continue through Sept. 2.

School officials said the old roof will be replaced with durable composition shingles on the steep slope portions of the roof, and with a strong new membrane on the lower slope portions of the roof. All of the metal flashing, metal panels, gutters, downspouts and skylights will be replaced or refurbished, and other metal features will be repainted to extend their life.

The project will mean limited access to the school and grounds. Construction staging will be based in the north and south parking lots while the existing roof is demolished and a new one is installed. Both parking lots will be closed until August to all but essential personnel. The construction area will be fenced for safety and additional traffic will be managed to minimize impacts on the surrounding community.
