St. Albert Commercial Roof Warranty Repair, May 2015

This report details a warranty dispatch for a liquid rubber installation which had been done the previous year. There was some leaking from the penetrations which needed to be addressed. Also included is the quotation for the original liquid rubber install. This project began in 2014 with a liquid rubber install on a commercial unit. The following are notes from our project manager concerning the initial state of the building pre-install:
This roof structure is a candidate for either a repair-maintenance program or a restorative engineered coating and may not have to be replaced. I would not recommend a standard reflective elastomeric coating or the SPF Spray Foam specifically with a standard reflective coating as the industry wide standard reflective coatings do not last well over time in our Western Canadian climate. This recommendation would possibly change if your objective is to reflect the sun, in this instance a reflective coating may be best, but in Western Canada the issue tends to be during winter months with metal roofs. Liquid rubber performs well in our climate as it has up to 1200% expansion and contraction. If considering Spray Foam for R Value we strongly suggest covering the spray foam with liquid rubber or preferably EPDM and not a reflective coating or white coating. Generally speaking, metal roof systems are constant aggravating roof structures. Industrial metal roof systems have a deficient design - they are water-shedding and not water-proofing coverings. Metal expands and contracts more than any other roofing material. Metal roofs tend to leak from expansion and contraction and ice / snow loads. Leaks are intermittent at seams (vertically where sheets are seamed together and horizontally where seams between sheets meet), penetrations (stacks, roof-top unit curbs, etc.), fasteners (fastener holes get larger with expansion and contraction), around the perimeter as ice back-ups at gutters and then under eave (hidden and external gutters have the same ice back up melt issue causing leaks), and at joints between roof and wall connections. Metal rust / corrosion may start at places, the seams and fasteners are vulnerable from expansion / contraction and snow loads, and any traditional caulking or reflective coating won’t last more than a few seasons at best. Remedies to the issue are; 1. Complete replacement of the metal roof which is most expensive and may leak anyway, 2. Spray-Foam (SPF) applied to metal with a top applied membrane - reflective coating, liquid rubber, or EPDM, which can be problematic as the metal, foam, and top coat expand and contract at different rates and reflective top coats tend to fail easily in our cold climate, 3. A roof board mechanically fastened on top of metal panels with SBS Torch-on or EPDM membrane which was a typical solution in the industry prior to liquid rubber coming to market – it is comparatively expensive and expansion and contraction again can be an issue, 4. Spot repairs-maintenance with caulking per scope in quote above, and 5. More extensive restoration which involves engineered coatings. Our recommendation is option 5 - a high end engineered liquid rubber polymer coating that carries a 10 Year Manufacturer Warranty and has option to a twenty year GRS maintenance contract for extended leak protection. In this instance, we recommend a 2 Ply Engineered Liquid Rubber Recovery System to the complete metal roofing area. This can be even more successful than a full metal roof replacement (depending on objectives). A recent project with photos can be found at; http://generalroofingsystemscanadainc.blogspot.ca/2012/05/roof-repair-liquid-rubber-metal-roof.html The scope of work involved in a metal roof liquid rubber recovery coating is; 2 Ply Engineered Liquid Rubber Recovery to Complete Metal Roof. Pressure wash to clean, water test, and assess. Test and replace fasteners as required to complete roof deck, penetrations, and gutters. Sheet metal repair and penetration saddle fabrication as required. Remove old caulking as required. Hand trowel all penetrations, roof to wall connections, all fasteners, ridge, horizontal sheet seams, hidden gutters (if present), and roof edge at external gutters with mesh and high grade rubber as required. Apply liquid rubber coating, allow cure time, repeat hand trowel process above, and apply second coat liquid rubber. The Ten Year Manufacturer Warranty is Extendable to Twenty Year Service under GRS Maintenance Agreement. Thank you.
Original condition of the roof: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 Subsequent to the liquid rubber installation, the client later contacted us to report some leaking around the penetrations on the roof. The work was still under warranty and the client was informed that a crew would be dispatched to make the necessary repairs. The client was made aware of the fact that metal roofs are prone to expansion and contraction (depending on the season), which often leads to leaks. He was also assured that we would be applying additional liquid rubber to the leaking areas until all leaking had stopped. Once on site the crew inspected the roof and determined that it was very likely penetration leaks. Dampness was observed on the interior ceiling and walls. On the second floor the leaks were mainly coming from the skylights, however there was one leak from a ventilation penetration. The source of the leak on top of the roof was not visible and so could have been a pin hole leak. The leaks were not serious in nature except for the office skylight which was significant. 20140115_125536 20140115_125658 20140115_125826 20140115_125850 20140115_125907 20140115_130304 20140115_130317 20140115_130351 20140115_130406 20140115_130411 20140115_130727 20140115_130800 At this point our project manager instructed a crew member to track the leak over the course of a few warm days. The warmer weather was required to fully understand where the leak was coming from. This was completed and additional liquid rubber was applied to the metal roof in order to prevent further leaking. 20150505_103645 20150505_105545 20150505_105559 20150505_110456 20150505_111056 20150505_111122 20150505_112400 < End Report > CODE: 23 Contact Us Call our 24 hour emergency roof repair at 1.780.424.7663.

Fort Saskatchewan Leak Repair Service, April 2015

This client in Fort Saskatchewan required a leak repair service as they were experiencing several water leaks on their roof. A crew was dispatched to locate and repair the leaks. Roof Report, April 7, 2015: Today we fixed three leaks. Leak number one was along the north wall, I pin pointed the leak to a curb or a make up air unit (both beside each other). I found numerous cracks in the EPDM which I repaired with form flash.
Leak two was above the pharmacy on the west wall. I found a corner that had a puncture in it so we cleaned it well and installed a corner patch. Leak three was on the center of the roof. After measuring it out we pin pointed it to an air unit. I shoveled back the gravel and cleaned and inspected the area, then I found a lap that had a nice size fish mouth in it which I repaired with cover strip. Approximately 20 man hours were required for this repair.
Material Used:
  • 1 can of quick prime (1 gallon).
  • 1 roll of EPDM form flash (8 inch).
  • 1 box of rags.
  • Splice wash (2 gallons).

Edmonton Commercial Flat Roof Repair, March 2015

This commercial client in Edmonton required a significant amount of repair work to ensure their flat roof would pass inspection. The report follows our initial inspection and the subsequent repair process.
Inspection, March 13, 2015: We met with the client onsite at 10:30 pm to take a look at the BUR roof that needs a 2x2 ft. vent curb deleted and another new curb installed. He would like us to install two sleepers on the roof tied back into the membrane. Two gum boxes are to be installed as well, one for a gas line and one for an electrical line to go through the roof. This a single story with easy access all around the building. We did a cut test and found that the roof is made up of a 3 inch structural strammit with 2 layers of 1/2 inch fiberboard and mopped felt. The problem with this kind of roof is that the vapour barrier is the skin of the strammit and comes in 4x8 sheets. This means that any patch would have to be at least to the nearest truss and be supported with 2x4 boards under the cuts of the strammit opening. For any warrantied work, we should tie in the strammit vapour across the patch and this needs to be done from underneath after the patch is applied. This would also require a 3x3 ft. hole to be cut out of the ceiling and should be handled by the client ahead of time. The other option is to replace a full sheet of strammit which may include a new complete tie in around the next curb beside it (depending on the layout of the strammit). We could just cover the hole with 1 inch plywood using no insulation, then use peel and stick, and torch cap the BUR. I would not suggest warrantying this kind of repair, especially right on top of a large commercial stove. These are improvements to be made to pass inspection to get the restaurant operating again. Another issue is the amount of grease that has been dumped onto the roof. This will require a larger patch since the membrane close to the curb will not support a proper tie in of 2 ply torch patch, and will require a 4 ft. area of membrane to be spudded beyond the patch all the way around. The client has requested another 2 curbs, 1 for an exhaust vent and 1 for an intake vent for the RTU to sit close to the sleeper witch would add another 8 – 10 man hrs. to the job. He has requested that we wrap all 3 curbs with ISO and plywood which brings us up to approximately 50 man hrs. for: 1 deleted curb, 3 new curbs to be installed and wrapped, 2 sleepers, and 2 gum boxes. If the new curb is not prepped ahead of us then we will need another sheet of ISO (size to be determined by flange of curb) and plywood to wrap the curb. If there is no ceiling access when we are there then add another 3 man hrs. to cut out and clean up.
Materials Required:
  • (2) 4x8 sheets of 1 inch plywood.
  • 3 rolls of cap.
  • 3 rolls of torch grade peel and stick.
  • (2) 5 gallon cans of sam adhesive.
  • 2 sheets of 3 inch ISO.
  • (10) 2x6 10 ft. boards.
  • (3) 2x4 8 ft. boards.
  • (2) 4 inch gum boxes
  • 2 pails of gum.
  • Assorted screws.
  • 2 cans of spray primer.
  • 5 paint brushes.
  • 3 roller sleeves.
  • 3 tubes of acoustical sealant.20150318_135912_resized 20150318_135919_resized 20150318_135926_resized 20150318_140109_resized 20150318_140112_resized
Roof Report, March 21, 2015: Today we deleted an old unit and added two curbs for new units. This was a difficult task as the roof is very old and quite frankly falling apart. There was also a section (6ft.x7ft.) that we had to remove because the grease from the grease trap had saturated the roof. Once we had all of this cut out and the insulation and plywood replaced, we roofed in the curbs and the greased section. All that is left to do is torch capping on the curbs and then add two more sleepers and roof them in.
As a side note, there are multiple areas around the added curbs that have positive leaks. There are also splits in the roof and major blisters. I pointed this out to the customer and he said he is aware of the leaks but has to wait for approval from property management before fixing them.

Edmonton Commercial Flat Roof Replacement, January 2015

This commercial client in Edmonton was presented with a quotation for a flat roof replacement. The report follows the crew as they performed the replacement over the course of several months. Scope of Work:
  • Scrape gravel down to existing 4 ply membrane and take down to dispose.
  • Supply and glue down a FR board (1/2 inch fiberboard adhered to a 95 gram sanded poly sheet) and seal all laps.
  • Supply and back torch a 180 gram armour bound peal and stick up walls and all penetrations.
  • Remove and replace any wet insulation.
  • Owners to move and re-position satellite and communication systems.
  • Clean all debris and haul away.
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. We then installed peel and stick stripping wherever possible and sopramastic waterproofing in all other protrusions.
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.
20150214_013512_resized 20150214_022441_resized
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.

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.

Edmonton Roofing Replacement, December 2014

This report details a residential roofing replacement as well as an initial quotation with various options for the client. The roof had water leakage due to issues with the sealants and draining systems. Additionally the roof was found to be blistering and splitting in areas. The initial email sent from our project manager to the client:
Good morning, Please find attached the quotation options for various membranes for the roof over your garage per the inspection report from our Red Seal Journeyman (see report below my signature at bottom of this email and quotation as attached). Unfortunately because of the small size the per sq rate is significantly higher than if you were to do both your house and garage - so if your house may be a consideration let me know and I'll revise the pricing for you. I've included options for replacement of all membrane types. Once you have had opportunity to review give me a call or email and I'll assist you with any questions you may have. Thanks again for your consideration!

The following is an inspection report from one of our crew members who inspected the site initially: The biggest problem for this house is that they have only one 2 5/8 drain for 3/4's of the roofs.  During heavy rainfall water pours over the edge of the parapet. There is a large amount of water ponding which has reduced the life span of the torch on roof. There is also moisture inside the system and it is apparent that the fiber board laps are beginning to buckle. The sloped roof on the house is in okay condition and will last another five years however the flat roof on the garage will not make it another two. There are signs of rot near the drain on the roof of the garage (there is already a BUR roof and torch on roof on top). I do not recommend a recovery on this roof because of weight issues during the winter, and because of the rotten substrate which will cause issues with attaching another roof. The lower flat roof is 1300 square ft. and the long side is 48 ft. I have given the client two options with the drainage: he can go with a drip edge into a gutter with two drains along the long side, or go with two drop drains in the low spots through the soffit. If we decide to go with the gutter on a new roof, we should add a 1% slope package on a torch-on system. If going with drop drains we should go for a new roof with a EPDM system. Regardless, the old roof needs to be removed to inspect the plywood substrate (in order to deliver a 20 year roof which he is looking for). 
With either drainage we are going to need approximately 100 ft. of downspout and nineties to run the water to the back alley and away from the house.

Materials Required:
  • 20 x 100 ft. 60 mil EPDM.
  • 10 x 100 ft. 6 mil Poly.
  • 90 sheets of 2 inch iso.
  • 45 sheets of 1/2 inch secure rock.
  • 4x 5 gallon pails of bonding adhesive.
  • 1x 3 gallon pail of splice adhesive.
  • 1x 3 gallon pail of quick prime.
  • 1x 5 gallon pail of splice wash.
  • 10 tubes of lap sealant.
  • 2x tubes of caulking.
  • 2x 6 inch rolls of seam tape.
  • 1 roll of form flash.
  • 1 box of rags.
  • 1 scrub pad kit.
  • 8 roller sleeves.
  • 8x 4 inch paint brushes.
  • 1 roll of garbage bags.
  • 600x 3 inch hd fasteners.
  • 600x 3 inch plates.
  • 40 sheets of plywood.
  • 100x 3/4 inch deck screws.
  • 100 ft. of drip edge.
  • 12 ft. of flashing for the chimney and smack pins.
  • 48 ft. of 5 inch brown gutters with hardware and matching gutter guards.
  • 100 ft. of down spout.
  • 10x 90 degree down spout and hangers.
  • 100x self taping brown sheet metal screws.
  • 2 rolls of 250 grey cap.
  • 1 roll of flam flam.
  • 1 can of spray primer.

Daily Report for Dec 4, 2014: The crew arrived at 7:30am to lay down the iso board as well as the rubber bug. At 5:00pm it started to snow so the crew left the site for the day.
Daily Report for Dec 5, 2014: Arrived on site at 9:00am to determine the best way to apply the liquid rubber. The client was also on site and had many questions so some time was spent talking with the client. Most of the day was used to install the liquid rubber. Daily Report for Dec 7, 2014: Arrived at 8:00am and spent most of the day installing the metal. There was some detail work to do around the perimeter and the chimney. The lap seal was also installed. The crew did a walk-around with the client who is satisfied with the work done so far. The gutter still needs to be installed. Daily Report for Dec 12, 2014: Gutter is installed and the job is 100% complete.
