DuBois, PA – The DuBois Area Senior High School building and the CG Johnson Elementary building will both get new roofs.

The school board chose to install a Firestone EPDM rubber roofing instead of an asphalt layered roof. Both types of roofs are similar qualities and come with a 30-year-warranty, but the rubber roofing was a couple million dollars less expensive.

Strongland Roofing Systems will install the rubber roofing at the DuBois Senior High School building at a cost of $1,741,560. In comparison, an asphalt roof for the high school would have cost more than $4 million.

David Maines will install the rubber roofing at the CG Johnson Elementary for a cost of $660,294.
