When ground broke for the construction of the new Guilford Middle School in Greensboro, North Carolina, students were only dreaming of a new building to call their “home away from home”. The existing building, which has stood since 1987, had grown tired and in need of repairs. Now graduated student Santiago Garcia-Rico recalled that in the sixth grade building, “there were leaks…and cracks everywhere.”

Through Mecklenburg Restoration and Kenseal Construction Products, future students (whom Garcia-Rico reminds are lucky to enjoy this new building) won’t have to worry about this. Kenseal worked closely with Mecklenburg Restoration to offer exceptional service and supply them with some of the best materials in the industry to ensure moisture protection for the entire building, including:

BASF Enershield HP: “a one component fluid-applied vapor permeable air/ water-resistive barrier based on Silica Fortified Rubber chemistry”
BASF Enershield Fil: “A one-component, water-based block filler based on Silica Fortified Rubber TM chemistry”

BASF Enershield Sheathing 6” x 180’ rolls: “Reinforced non-woven polyester fabric designed for use with Enershield-HP or Enershield-I air/water-resistive barriers by BASF Corporation – Construction Systems”


Thanks to our products and services, the students of Guilford Middle will be able to focus on their education and success. We agree with principal Patrice Brown when she says that this new building will “give students a sense of pride…and what they deserve.” Go Tigers!
