Edmonton Residential Leak Repair, November 2010

This client reported a leak around their chimney and contracted GRS to carry out the necessary repairs. The service was done quickly, and the leak issue resolved. Inspection: October 21, 2010 The technician carrying out the investigation on-site found that there is a leak coming in on an inside wall up near the vaulted ceiling. They took photos of the roof and possible fault sites to help give the repair crew a better idea of where to make the necessary repairs.

Our inspection of the gutter system and eaves-trough revealed crumpled metal and improperly fastened components throughout the assembly.

Next, we moved onto the shingle roof. Our technicians looked for signs of weather damage, missing or broken shingles, and any holes or tears in the roof surface.

Next, we moved onto the ventilation units. Signs to look out for include holes or dents on the unit itself, crumpling around the base, and unsealed seams.
Picture4
We found that some of the step flashing at the wall connections was not sealed properly, or the caulking was wearing out.
Picture6
The downspout only extended a quarter way to the gutters. Although some water was draining, there was a significant amount of moisture that had seeped through the shingles and into the building on the way down.
