Grandstand improved with Schweitzer Spray Coatings
Rain and ice were starting to wear on the main grandstands. Several leaks developed allowing rain water to enter the building and if not addressed could have caused damage to the structure. President, Doug Ninmann worked with Schweitzer Spray Coatings of West Bend, WI to patch leaks and apply a synthetic rubber spray to improve durability.
The grandstands get a lot of traffic, the original rubber roof was installed around 1994 and lasted till 2016, almost 22 years till a replacement was needed. The longevity was likely cut in half due to the amount of foot traffic, roofs are not meant to be walked on. The area under the grandstands is valuable space and used for a variety of functions like; concessions, exhibitor displays, maintenance and restrooms.
Schweitzer Spray Coatings uses RC 2000 Rubber Roof Coating that resists cracking and peeling caused by hot and cold weather extremes.
Sponsorships and donations to the non-profit Fair Association are important to maintaining the buildings and grounds.
