Edmonton Tar and Gravel Roof Recovery, October 2012

This client in Edmonton sought a quote from GRS for the services available to their failing tar and gravel roof system. We returned the quote to them, helped make the best selection for their situation, and followed through with the service. We first heard from this client in mid-September and assessed their property for viable solutions to their problem. We returned our usual quotation to them, which included pricing for temporary repairs, roof recovery, or roof replacement systems. The client was hoping for a single recommendation in terms of viability, as they weren't sure what each solution entailed. We recommended roof recovery via liquid rubber or EPDM system to give the same longevity of a total replacement, but at a lesser cost. The client elected for an EPDM system installation, and we got to scheduling the job. For mid-October, we began clearing space for a waste bin and prepared the site for the technicians to come in for the installation. IMG_8042 IMG_5470 Field Report, October 11 2012: Our crew arrived to the location for 8:30am and worked through to 6:30pm. The bulk of the day was spent removing the on-roof gravel in preparation for the EPDM. Due to the accumulation of ice on the roof, we had to spud it instead to remove the gravel and ice at the same time. The roof is now cleared off and ready to move on to the next phase of the project. 0ct 11 2012 007-Optimized 0ct 11 2012 004-Optimized         0ct 11 2012 005-Optimized0ct 11 2012 006-Optimized 0ct 11 2012 008-Optimized 0ct 11 2012 009-Optimized 0ct 11 2012 010-Optimized 0ct 11 2012 011-Optimized 0ct 11 2012 012 Field Report, October 17 2012: The crew began the EPDM installation for the roof recovery, and had it finished quickly.
