Washington Roofing Supports the United School Administrators of Kansas for Over 20 Years

Yesterday started the 2013 United School Administrators of Kansas conference in Wichita which is being held January 23-25 at the Hyatt and Century II Convention Centers.  Washington Roofing & Insulation (WRI) has set up a display during the convention with Chuck Carpenter, Owner and John Williams, Sales and Service, attending.

"Chuck has been a valued exhibitor for over 20 years now," said Moriah Carpenter, estimator for the company. "We use this experience as a chance to reconnect with old clients and friends and are able to provide them with updated information on spray polyurethane foam (SPF) roofing and roof coatings."

WRI has worked with 82 school districts in the state of Kansas to provide them with quality roofing for their buildings. There are 293 districts in the state.

"We do a lot of work for schools in Kansas, Missouri and Oklahoma," Moriah said. "They use us because we continue to service them through proper maintenance which allows the roof to last the life of the building."

Several hundred exhibitors are supporting the annual conference this year. If you are in the area today and tomorrow, stop by and get your picture taken with Chuck or John and ask them about commercial roofing solutions for the future.

Exciting Times for Washington Roofing & Insulation

There is so much going on this year and we want to continue to share exciting updates with everyone. Washington Roofing & Insulation was awarded the job to work with almost a dozen Casey's General Stores in the state of Missouri and will be working with them for several months. We also recently finished a Digester Lid Dome in Lubbock, Texas with SPF and elastomeric roof coating.

We are in the process of working with a 30,000 square foot building in Lenexa, Kansas which will entail using GacoFlex S-20 Silicone Coatings from GACO Western over an existing EPDM roof. Exciting times in the roofing industry.

In addition, we ran across this case study from the Honeywell Report which shows how well closed cell polyurethane foam saves on utilities. Yes, we work in commercial construction and the report is based on residential case studies, but it is a great example of how SPF can be a major player in energy efficiency.
