High River SBS Roof Replacement, October 2014

This commercial client required a roof replacement and elected to have GRS install a 2-ply SBS Modified Bitumen system. This was done in High River, AB, far to the north of the province.   Roof Report: October 24, 2014 The team arrived on site for 9am and began to get it prepared to commence work the following day. Material lists were organized and ready for purchase, and the tools were loaded onto the roof. The crew waited for the dump bin to arrive, and once it had they went off to the store to pick up the last of the materials needed for the job's beginning. They ended the day for 3:00pm, leaving the job site for the evening.   Roof Report: October 26, 2011 The four team members arrived for 8:00am and worked for a few short hours until 11:30. In their time on site, they stripped off the torch-on system and moved materials to the side of the roof where they would begin work the following day. The weather forecast called for heavy snow, and ice crystals were building on the roof even after torching. They called it for the day at 11:30am, and would return the following morning.   Roof Report: October 29, 2015 Starting the morning at 7:30, the team got to work with chipping away ice, blow-drying the roof, and cleaning it off for work. Once done, they got to stripping outer walls, putting up around 25' of fascia, and stripping the parapet walls too. They installed two high domes and starting putting more capping on. Heavy snowfall came in just before 5:00pm, so the team wrapped up the site for the day.   Updated Quotation Delivered: October 30, 2014 We sent over an updated quote to the client to show payments that had been applied to date. There was some uncertainty remaining about the amount of sheathing requiring replacement, so the final quote was yet to be confirmed.   Roof Report: October 30, 2014 This day saw a lot of ice chipped away and snow swept off of the roof. They team torched the capping and installed scupper drains and the necessary downpipes. They left the job site for 4:00pm once word arrived that some more of the materials for the job site on order had arrived. They got the materials and returned to the town; an 8-hour round trip. Roof Report: October 31, 2014 There was some light rain in the morning, but not enough to cancel the day's progress. The rest of the roof system was ripped off and the rotten plywood underneath replaced. The last scupper drain was installed, and some more of the parapet wall was stripped. Once done, the last of the capping was torched on and materials were moved and prepared for the next day. After clean-up, the team departed the site for around 5:30pm. The day's efforts saw 25 sheets of OSB plywood 7/16 installed, which allowed for a final quote to be delivered to the client as everything that would be exposed and inspected had been so.

Their task for the day was working on getting the enco new paper was completed, and the job site was cleaned up afterwards. They left the site at 1:00pm, another job completed.     CODE: 10006 Contact Us Call our 24 hour emergency roof repair at 1.780.424.7663. Mail to: 3428 99 Street NW Edmonton, Alberta T6E-5X5.

Evansburg Rooftop Fascia and Downpipe Installation, July 2012

This client in Evansburg, Alberta required the installation of fascia and downpipes on their property. A GRS crew was dispatched to perform the install. This report follows their progress. Roof Report, July 23, 2012: We unpacked the pallet and carried the fascia to roof. Then we installed fascia to 3/4 of the Eastern wall.
We worked in the pouring rain for 5 hours and the drainage is adequate, both sets of drains are placed in the 2 low points of the wall. I will consult another crew member via phone and email tomorrow for the red seal assessment. Due to thunder and lightning creating an unsafe work atmosphere, we were only able to log 5.5 hours toward the project. Roof Report, July 24, 2012: Today we installed the fascia onto 100% of the building. We also installed cap flashing and the box pan covers over the vinyl siding cutouts.
As for whether there are adequate drains or not, we worked on the roof in the pouring rain Monday July 23, 2012 & Tuesday July 24, 2012. The drains kept up with the heavy amounts of rainfall and once the rain stopped the roof was bone dry in an hour. Against the South wall there is a chimney vent in the SE corner that has been torched (after the installation of the metal roof jack), leaving a gap in between the metal flashing and the torch on cap sheet. We will need to purchase and apply MS detail and Grey Granules to fix this problem.
The 2" bow in the wall is all but noticeable after installing the cap & fascia.
Tasks remaining:
  • Install downpipes and rain leaders. 
  • Screw centres above drip on fascia panels with neoprene washer screws (for wind proofing). 
  • Caulk PV's where the aluminum meets the neoprene gasket.
  • Drive to city, purchase MS detail, return to site and apply product.
  • Site cleanup and removal of all remaining material, break down pallet, final go over of site for screws and debris.

We also installed the downpipes, then repaired holes in the cap sheet around the PV's and chimney flashing with Bakor plastic cement. The roof hatch is your standard size except for the hinges and the lid is clad with metal. Those who are unaware and go through the roof hatch need to be careful. If they let it flop back down they make it very possible to put holes in the roof.
