Project: East Lake High School Project Site: Tarpon Springs, FL


East Lake High School is one of 17 schools in Pinellas County, FL, serving the communities of Tarpon Springs, East Lake, Palm Harbor, and Oldsmar. It ranked in the top ten percent of all high schools in the state of Florida in 2011 and was one of only two schools in the district to be recognized for academic excellence.


New Drexel Metals Roof Puts An End To Problems Plaguing Florida High School.


Restoring a building to its former glory is a rewarding part of retrofit projects. Drexel Metals Inc. had an opportunity to be part of such an undertaking as the manufacturer of the metal roof system chosen to replace a failed one at East Lake High School in Tarpon Springs, FL.


Drexel Metals was excited to be part of the project to give this deserving school a new roof. For this project Drexel Metals used its DMC 175S roof panel in Slate Blue. The color proved an ideal complement to the bright blue Florida sky.


The DMC 175S is Drexel Metals’ most popular roof system. It features a 1-3/4" Snap Lock seam. The continuous interlocking system offers designers a concealed fastener and clip application that provides for expansion and contraction.


While the DMC 175’s panels and attachment clips are easy to install – offering labor savings when compared to many other types of metal roof systems – the completed roof is engineered to resist hurricane force winds. The system is offered in both steel and aluminum, and is approved for use on Weather Tightness Warranty projects. The forensic architect, Robert Whitcomb of C.B. Goldsmith and Associates Inc., who won an award for the reroof of East Lake High School, chose the DMC 175S roof system because it eliminated the cost of seaming the roof panels. This allowed the contractor, Hennessy Construction Services, to remove or replace individual panels without having to disassemble a standing seam. This allowed greater flexibility when installing and saved time since they did not have to seam the panels.
