Flat Roof Drain Repair Edmonton, January 23, 2015

Below you will find a report from the flat roof repair crew in Edmonton Alberta conducting their report and repairs. A material list is also made available, as specified in the crew's report. When I got to the site, I confirmed what the crew had thought: the drain had a hole punched through it and was leaking back into the system. The site supervisor went to pick up the required supplies and we worked on removing water in the area. Once he got back, we installed the retro-drain with a proper U-Flow® Mechanical Seal and tied it back into the torch on the roof.

Flat Roof Leak Repair Edmonton, January 22 2015.

Below you will find a report from the Edmonton roof repair crew for a commercial car wash roof located in Sherwood Park. There had been a flat roof leak. I met the crew on-site and went up to the car wash roof, where I found water was pouring through a curb on the concrete deck. I checked the curbs in the area leaking and found nothing. Then, I expanded the search and found an anchor installed through the roof membrane that was improperly sealed off. I installed a lick of gum over the problem area and asked the client to call me back if the problem persisted. Please note that this is only a temporary repair and we should return to check if the improper sealing was actually the cause of the leak. < End Report > Code: 2000 Contact Us Call our 24 hour emergency roof repair at 1.780.424.7663.

Edmonton Roof Vent Repair, January 2015

This client required repairs a vent on their roof. They contacted GRS in early January to have the repairs scheduled and showed us the problem areas upon our arrival.
Table of Contents
Roof Report: January 18, 2015 The crew arrived on site for 9:00am, and went up onto the roof to examine the area needing repairs. There was some two inches worth of ice surrounding the problem spot, and the client requested that we return sometime later when the spot is dry. Roof Report: January 20, 2015 At the first time of contact, the client only had one leak to report (on a gooseneck vent), but it appears that a second leak has appeared in a dryer vent. The team fixed both of the leaks with sopramastic and meshing, taking just over an hour to carry out the work. The client examined the area afterwards and was content with services tendered. 20150120_160502_resized 20150120_160513_resized 20150120_163708_resized 20150120_164842_resized 20150120_164851_resized < End Report > CODE: 12006 Contact Us Call our 24 hour emergency roof repair at 1.780.424.7663.

Roof Report, January 21, 2015:
We arrived on site at 2:10 pm and I got set up to continue with the cap stripping. At the same time we were waiting to see what was going to happen with the weather since it was still drizzling. I went through the safety paperwork and then we helped with removing the garbage from the roof and brought it to the bin. 20141212_14051920141212_195820 20141212_195807 20141212_140503 Roof Report, January 23, 2015: After our toolbox meeting we proceeded to install FR board on the upper mechanical roof and did so until the point of satellites in all directions.

Cleaned up and left site at 4:30pm.

Roof Report, February 12, 2015:
This morning after we were done with the safety reports, we went to the upper roof and continued with the base seal tie in. I had two other crew members remove snow from the entire upper roof while I started to install peel and stick on the curbs. After I was done with the curbs on the north side of the roof, I installed patches over the plates and installed gussets were there were none. I also found several spots that needed patches in the field and repaired as required.
Roof Report, February 14, 2015:
Started to lay in FR board where they moved the satellite towers. Once we got the base done on one I had a crew member start capping it in while myself and another crew member started to base in the next section. Both sections were capped by the end of the day which made the client happy. Then I stayed on site to complete fire watch.

Roof Report, February 18, 2015:
This morning we started on completing the NE corner of the roof by installing the last of the FR board. We also started sealing around the curbs and perimeter.
We then moved to the SW corner and completed the base tie in around the satellite and patched plate holes in the area. Fire watch from 3:30pm to 5:30pm.
IMGP2516 IMGP2517 IMGP2518 IMGP2519 IMGP2523 IMGP2527 IMGP2532
Roof Report, February 19, 2013: Once we got to the site we continued with the base tie in around the large curb and the parapet on the SW corner of the upper roof.
Roof Report, March 7, 2015: Today we completed the field cap and most of the DE granulating around the details. Roof Report, March 9, 2015:
Bill and me completed the cap stripping on the upper roof today and need to touch up the gum boxes and granules to finish the SBS on the upper roof. We then completed the curbs on the main roof and started to install the plumbing vents when it started to rain at 3 pm. I am not happy with the large ponding area on the east side of the main roof and would like permission to extend the sump on the east side with a trough through the high spot so that more water drains.  I would have to cut out the FR board from the sump about 1 ft. wide west about 10 ft. to where the water ponds 3 inches at the deepest point. Then tie in the old roof to new torch on roof through the trough. This would require 10 man hours and another roll of cap which would add another 2 years to the life of the cap in that area. Roof Report, March 10, 2015:
Today we installed 8 plumbing vents and touched up the existing plumbing vents with smag and granules. We completed the west drop drain install and reset the air units on the SW corner of the main roof. We then cleaned the entire main roof and downloaded all the garbage. Roof Report, March 11, 2015:
This morning we completed the touch ups on the gum boxes of the upper roof and then started installing the metal around the perimeter of the upper roof and found that we were short one length. On the far east side of the roof there looks to be another piece missing that would cover the electrical lines and 2-18 inch storm collars are gone as well. We installed all the metal that was there and added extra screws and smack pins to make them very solid.
Roof Report, March 12, 2015: After the weekly meeting in the morning we met up at Home Depot for caulking and then went to the site. We spent extra time on resetting all the wire tracks on the upper roof and finished off the storm collars with caulking as well. 2 of the 18 inch stacks still have no storm collars but we filled them with caulking anyway. With no metal flashing on the wall detail on the upper roof, we made sure that water would not pond there by completely filling the riglet with caulking. We downloaded the rest of the tools, rolls of base, and propane into the small trailer and parked it in the very NE corner of the parking lot.  The bin is still on site and will need to be removed.
Follow-up Inspection, August 19, 2015: Upon visual inspection of the roof. I noticed 6 different blisters had developed. Attached is a copy of a roof map that shows the approximate locations of the blisters. Continuing on we walked the entire roof, testing the membrane to make sure the insulation was properly adhered to the roof underneath. I would say that there is no issues with the adhesion. The following is a list of the repairs that should be made to said deficiencies:
  • A lack of chipping away at the existing roof that was re-roofed led to a ridge. We can either build it up around it, leveling it off, or cut it and patch it.
  • Run a patch to meet lapping requirements.
  • Pipes need to be patched.
  • Anchor fasten the flashing correctly to the wall. Ms detail to seal the flashing.
  • Replace with concrete paving stones and roof mate underneath, and have a drainage mat under the roof mate.
  • Run a drainage mat or roof mate.
  • Install storm collars and caulk them.
  • Have a flashing made up and installed.
  • Have a sheet metal cap fabricated and installed.
  • Install cap sheet, roof mate, drainage mat and paving stones.
  • Box it in with cap and quick prime.
