Contract awarded to replace Kitsap Lake Elementary roof

BREMERTON — The Bremerton School District awarded Waynes Roofing a contract to replace Kitsap Lake Elementary School’s roof with a new asphalt shingle roof.

The estimated cost of replacing the roof is $395,125; major roof repairs is an item that was included in BSD’s newly passed levy package.

“The current asphalt roof shingles have deteriorated to the point where they are no longer functioning like they need to and require replacement,” said Patty Glaser, communications director for BSD.

The district received quotes from a number of contractors to replace the roof, both for an asphalt shingle roof and a metal roof.

“The metal roof is twice as expensive as the asphalt shingle roof,” Glaser said. “We could have two roofs replaced for the cost of a metal one.

Waynes Roofing’s asphalt shingle bid was the cheapest quoted price.

Glaser added that construction on roof replacement is expected to start June 19, “as soon as school is out.” The plan is to have the construction complete by the time the 2017-18 school year starts in September.

Crownhill Elementary is the next school scheduled to have its roof replaced, during the summer of 2018, but Glaser said that plan “can change if another building has more immediate roof issues when the time comes.”
