Roof Deck Drainage and Waterproofing

Recommendations for Waterproofing Outdoor Decks Over Conditioned Living Space. Roof Deck Drainage and Waterproofing - Inspection and Repair of a Torch-On Flat Roof on Outdoor Balcony at Multi-Family Condominium. Customers regularly call on us to have roof assessments (inspections) completed. During a roof assessment our journeyman roofers assess the roofs condition. We assess the roof for preventative maintenance reasons as well as inspecting existing problems that the customer is pointing out. We then discuss different scopes of work fix the problems as well as potential materials and costs related to the repairs. One of the most common calls we get for inspections and repairs are rooftop decks, balconies and patios. The primary reason the failure rate on rooftop decks is so high is because of the original installation. It is common for incorrect membrane choice to be the reason. In other words, many people install an outdoor deck membrane that is intended only for an outdoor deck and not a membrane for over a heated living space. If your rooftop deck or balcony is over a heated living area you require a special membrane that is also intended for low slope roofing (as well as deck waterproofing) and is approved for use over a conditioned living space. Common products for this are Dura-Deck or DecTec, both of which are a PVC membrane that are suitable to be walked on (so they do not require a floating deck over top) and they manufacture membranes suitable for over a conditioned living space. We use DecTec extensively and have had great results with it. Or, also common is the installation of a membrane that won't hold up to the foot traffic associated with outdoor living areas. Other reasons include simple age, wear and tear, drainage and issues relating to penetrations or floating deck assemblies on top of the membrane. Visit our main website for more information on rooftop deck waterproofing. This particular inspection and subsequent repairs was more focused toward an aging membrane and the associated repairs that come with not properly maintaining the deck membrane and building envelope over the years. The drainage problems were causing significant damage to the exterior of the building. Below you will find the inspection report.

Tar and Gravel Roof Repair, May 29 2015

Article: Tar and Gravel Roof Repair Edmonton, Alberta. Flat Roof - Commercial. Emergency Dispatch. Repair to Splits, Blisters, Pitch Pockets.

March 29, 2015: Emergency Roof Repair Dispatch Call-In. Tar and Gravel Roof Repair Edmonton. This call was patched to our project manager as an emergency call-out. Our client, a management company that handles maintenance for commercial properties asked that we attend asap. One of our advantages in the roofing industry is our ability to respond 24 hours a day 7 days a week to any type of roof repair emergency. This particular emergency call-out was for a tar and gravel roof. Tar and gravel built up roofs have one advantage in that usually we can repair them almost indefinitely. As long as the maintenance inspections are done regularly and repairs done each year then chances are you will avoid having the roof become saturated with moisture. If too much of the roof assembly becomes saturated with moisture then it becomes impossible to repair tar and gravel roofs.

Edmonton Tar and Gravel Roof Repair

A prospective client north of Edmonton reached out to GRS to address a flat, gravel roof that was found to leak during the warmer period of this past winter. The water would drip into the unit and out of the ceiling in an approximately 6' x 8' area. They requested an estimator to come examine the roof and provide a quote for repair or replacement. Researching the building and gathering pertinent dimension information, GRS delivered estimates for a variety of roofing replacement systems in addition to what the expected repair would require. Client evaluated the options and believed the EPDM roof recovery to be their best option, rather than repair smaller portions of the roof. Appreciating the quote and evaluation, the client elected to put the project on hold for the time being. Contact Us Call our 24 hour emergency roof repair at 1.780.424.7663.

Fort Saskatchewan Roof Leak Inspection, October 2014

This report outlines an inspection carried out by the GRS team for a client in Fort Saskatchewan. The location of the water leak was determined and a recommendation was made for the necessary repairs. Inspection, October 30, 2014:
This client has a leak in the SW corner of the hotel roof. While on the roof I looked through all of the laps in the area where it was leaking, (and on the top side of the slope that would have run through the area) and they were all okay. I did find a couple of breaches in the system. One I fixed with TPO cover strip and the other with water cut off. I think the leak is coming from the stucco to the frame work as there are cracks and holes through it. There is also an electrical conduit that runs along the parapet walls which is mechanically fastened. The conduit is attached with 1 inch screws and they are popping out, this should be fixed to prevent any further breaches to the system.

Edmonton Commercial Roof Repair Quotation, September 2014

This client reached out to GRS to receive a quotation for repairs to their commercial residential building. They included a report (from which the subsequent photos and their captions are obtained), which allowed us to return a quotation for the repairs they sought. Client's Report Received: September 17, 2014 The client sent their report into the GRS office, detailing problems with the current roof and explaining what kind of services they would like performed in the various problem spots. This allowed our account representative to deliver and present an accurate quote for the repairs, in addition to positioning the possibility of a roof replacement as had been discussed with the client in prior communications. GRS Note: The photos and comments below were included in an Inspection Report carried out by a third-party and, while informative, may not fully represent the opinions of GRS. Sometimes clients will submit their own photos or reports that they've independently sourced; all of this information helps us build a proper quote without needing to physically arrive on site.

Edmonton Commercial Flat Roof Inspection, July 2014

This commercial client requested an inspection and subsequent quotation for their flat rooftop. A crew member was dispatched for the inspection and immediately noticed several water leak issues. Inspection, July 29, 2014: They are getting leaks around three units and one corner detail, an additional leak is coming from an eliminated penetration. All of the lap seal is cracked around the three units and the corner detail. There has been an attempt to patch the leaks with sopra mastic gum in the past, but this would have to be removed for a proper repair to occur. I would need to remove the old lap seal, add flash dorm to the spots that are lifting, and apply new laptop seal to all seams around the leaking areas. This job would take approximately 40 to 50 man hours. 20140729_111236_resized 20140729_111241_resized 20140729_111300_resized 20140729_111310_resized 20140729_111622_resized 20140729_111625_resized 20140729_111631_resized 20140729_111638_resized 20140729_111711_resized < End Report > CODE: 9688 Contact Us Call our 24 hour emergency roof repair at 1.780.424.7663.

Edmonton Downspout Installation, July 2014

This report covers the installation of industrial-grade downspouts at our client's commercial location. They had GRS conduct repairs to their roof in years prior, and  requested our help in reinforcing the downspout system. Quotation Delivered: July 16, 2014 After conducting some repairs at the client's location the winter prior, we advised them that there would be difficulties in repairing any downspout while the winter season continued. Now that warmer weather has arrived, it's time to conduct the repairs (or, in this case, a replacement). We delivered our quote for the installation of three new industrial-grade downspouts, and booked them in for early-mid July. Roof Report: July 7, 2014 The servicing technician arrived on site for 8:00am and did a site walk-through to investigate any further causes to leaks experienced over the weekend before. The problem was quickly identified as loose meshing where the metal meets the gutter, so it was fixed with a new piece of mesh and brush-grade liquid rubber solution. There was also a problem with the eavestroughs leaking when they were filled over a certain capacity. The problem can't be fixed while they are full, so the technician promised to return at a later date. This report will continue to be updated with more reports and in-progress photos as they're brought over from the old content system.

Edmonton Commercial Roof Inspection Report, July 2014

This commercial client required a full rooftop inspection by one of our red seal journeymen. The report outlines the many issues encountered on the rooftop and includes photos of the site. Inspection, July 4, 2014: This roof is an SBS Modified Torch on replacement and it was observed in a complete failed condition. The numbers of failure areas are so numerous that itemizing each would take many hours - this report will only explain generally what was observed because the whole roof was considered failed. Generally speaking most of the torch side laps were not heated correctly which in itself has caused the roof to fail. End laps and side laps were found at numerous areas to be less than the required measurements (side laps at 3” and connecting rolls at 6”). There were areas observed where the field rolls were installed over flashing which is opposite of procedure. The termination points of SBS at walls where flashing is required is not done, the rolls were not cut at the corners prior to the next roll installed, and drainage was not designed correctly (the slope is not appropriate). There were numerous improperly applied repair patches at seams that were failed. Much of the detail work at the corners of units and penetrations was done incorrectly, and the flashing membrane at the parapets did not extend in many instances fully up the vertical to the top of the parapet and across and terminating at the outside edge. The stripping at the parapet walls was not adhered correctly in many instances, and it did not extend at least 4” over the field. Considering the numerous application issues the roof application is over-all in a failed condition. 20140428_133742_resized_1 20140428_133747_resized_1 20140428_133752_resized_1 20140428_133824_resized_1 20140428_133847_resized_1 20140428_133901_resized_1 20140428_133956_resized_1 20140428_134002_resized_1 20140428_134011_resized_1 20140428_134035_resized_1 20140428_134059_resized 20140428_134129_resized_1 20140428_134135_resized_1 20140428_134144_resized_1 20140428_134149_resized_1 20140428_135406_resized_1 < End Report > CODE: 14225 Contact Us Call our 24 hour emergency roof repair at 1.780.424.7663.

Edmonton Roof Drain Repair, June 2014

This report deals with a leak inside the building from a drain pipe coming from the roof. GRS arrived on location to find that it was not a problem with the roof itself, but was able to fix the client's concern and resolve the job quickly. Our crew member arrived to the site and met with the maintenance supervisor to see where the leak was coming into the building. Upon further investigation, the leak was not coming from the newly-built roof itself, but rather from a drain pipe that was plumbed through the inside of the building. The drain pipe's access fitting near the ground entry was loose and required more sealant. Having brought roofing tools unsuited to this particular job (this is a plumbing concern, not roofing), our crew member went to the local shop to pick up the necessary supplies. Returning to the site, the access fitting was quickly sealed and secured, resolving the problem.   20140611_085315_resized 20140611_085324_resized 20140611_085340_resized 20140611_085539_resized 20140611_085543_resized 20140611_095912_resized 20140611_095919_resized 20140611_095921_resized 20140611_085303_resized < End Report > CODE: 12828 Contact Us Call our 24 hour emergency roof repair at 1.780.424.7663.

Edmonton Commercial Roof Leak Inspection, April 2014

This Edmonton client required a rooftop inspection to determine where his water leak was originating from. A GRS crew attended and discovered that the entire roof is very unstable and should be replaced as soon as possible. Inspection, April 23, 2014: When I arrived on site I began my leak inspection and noticed there was a very large leak in the middle of his shop. I went on the roof and I noticed 3 to 4 inches of water across the whole rooftop. We pumped off all of the water that we could but with the large amount of rain it was a losing battle. Under further inspection I noticed the roof only had one drain and due to where it was located it wasn't draining properly. This roof is also very soft and unstable, and it feels unsafe like it could cave in at anytime. I advised the customer of my concerns and let him know it would be in his best interest to replace this roof as it it very unstable. I also told him we would come and try to fix his leak when the roof dries up. 3 6 7 10 12 13 16 18 20 < End Report > CODE: 16814 Contact Us 24 Hour Emergency Roof Repair. Telephone: 1.403.873.7663.
