Harness the Wind. Build Superior Roofs.

Stanberry R-II High School and Elementary

The mission of the Stanberry R-II School District, serving as a unifying element of our community, is to develop students who strive for excellence with a healthy intellectual, physical and emotional balance that will enable them to become lifelong learners and productive citizens in a changing society.

In the spring of 2012, Dr. Bruce Johnson (Superintendent) was faced with a difficult challenge – how to replace a leaky high school roof without asking for additional tax payer funds or depleting district reserves. His successful solution combined pressure equalization technology with a short term low interest lease purchase arrangement. The project was so successful that in 2015 his replacement, Dr. Adam Willard, used the same proven method to replacing the larger elementary school roofs.

WindSmart assisted the district in the replacement of each roof assembly. Through a process of detailed analysis, a myriad of options were evaluated. Recommendations, options and budgets were provided to the Board of Education for consideration. The chosen assembly and options were competitively bid and then successfully implemented during summer break. WindSmart provided project oversight of the installation.

In both cases, the projects were developed to achieve cost-effective and long-lasting roof assemblies, including:

  • Code compliance with wind uplift resistance engineered to ASCE standards
  • High energy efficiency – R30 insulation in a tapered configuration
  • Continual moisture mitigation through a process of controlled air exchange
  • A high level of environmental stewardship which avoided roof “tear off”, thus allowing 100% recycling of existing air barrier and insulation materials
  • Fast-track construction (summer installation)
