Article: EPDM Flat Roof Repair Calmar Alberta, Commercial Building, Slope Toward Drains.

Below you will find a report from the flat roof repair crew. The issue with this roof was that a back-slope was required to get the water drainage correct. Once the back slope was installed on the flat roof the water drained from the roof much better. May 9, 2015: Crew Arrives to Complete Repair

EPDM Repair
EPDM Repair in progress. Installing a back-slope at the roof parapet to redirect water to drain.
  After filling out our safety documentation and a weekly safety meeting we went up on the roof to find about 2 inches of standing water along the back wall. We spent 2 hours getting the roof dry. Once the roof was dry we then installed our slope with screws and plates to correct the roof ponding issues. After that we put 3 inch seam tape around the perimeter of our back slope. Once that was complete we put latex in our rubber using 2  pieces as one piece. It would of been a hassle after we glued our rubber down. The crew then glued it to the seam tape all around to ensure a 100% seal. The slope turned out really good. The customer inspected the work and was happy. I also noticed 2 outside corners that where failing so I fixed them while I was there we then packed up our tools downloaded them to the truck and left site at 5 PM.

Flat Roof Drain Repair Edmonton, July 1, 2015.

Article: Tar And Gravel Flat Roof Drain Repair Edmonton Alberta To Commercial Building.

Below you will find a report from the flat roof repair crew in Edmonton Alberta conducting there report and repairs.  October 29, 2014: Assessment Completed  The client has two leaks. Originally it was one, but the manager said it was two. He then showed me leak number one.  It is in the center of the store. When I got up to roof, the roof was in good shape and I couldn't find the leak but upon further investigation the leak is coming from the drain. There are multiple seams in the drain pipe and I would recommend that two u-flows be installed in that drain, by the way it was designed it would need two.
There are multiple holes in the wall that need to be plugged as water can and is getting in there and most certainly the cause of the leak
4 to 6 man hours to complete
Leak Identified On Roof
Our assessment began with a walk-around of the perimeter, noting any deficiencies at common leak entry points.
Leak From Inside Building
Water-damaged ceiling panels were removed and our technicians checked the building envelope for leak entry points, deficiencies.

We spent extra time on resetting all the wire tracks on the upper roof and finished off the storm collars with caulking as well.  Two of the 18 inch stacks still have no storm collars but we filled with caulking any way.   With no metal flashing on the wall detail on the upper roof, we made sure that water would not pond there and completely filled the ringlet with caulking and should hold. At the end of the day we downloaded the rest of the tools and but 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 needs to be removed.

  June 4, 2014: Crew Arrives back on Site.  Today the rain prevented us from tearing off a larger selection than what we did. Another crew came over from their site to help us. They couldn't tear off unless he was going to tear it all off so he came to help us because I can easily seal off what we do on to the existing tar and gravel. We got a 25×25 ft section ripped , covered and sealed up before the rain came. Sky opened up around 4:00 and it has been pouring ever since June 8, 2014: Crew Arrives Back on Site After Rain Had Stopped.  Finished up the last of the plate/screw patches.
