September 2 [Service Follow-up]
  Inquiry and Inspection: July 23, 2015 The client first reached out to us in late July to have the roof on their residential building replaced with an EPDM system. After completing the work orders and both sides coming to terms with respect to the work to be carried out, inclement weather put things on hold for some time. In early August, we notified the client that we would deliver the EPDM to their rooftop so that it could be accessed with a moment's notice on fair-weathered days.   Roof Report: August 12, 2015 We arrived on-site to measure the roof and determine what insulation was laid under the current surface. They found the work-space to be 45 ft. x 47 ft., and compiled a list of materials that are expected to be used in the job. Materials:
  • Twelve 4" vents.
  • Four dryer vents.
  • Four gas heat stacks.
  • One scupper.
  • One roof drain.
We began the replacement by measuring the roof perimeter and determining what insulation was being used underneath the current surface.
Next, we determined what rooftop appliances required replacement and whether there were any new components that needed to be ordered.
A section of the roof was cut open to determine what insulation was being used. The roof was insulated using fiberglass wood chips.
Finally, we inspected the edges to see whether any new flashing needed to be ordered.
  Roof Report: August 24, 2015 The materials were cleared off the roof and detail work was completed. Waste was brought to the disposal bin, and the bin area was cleaned up and designated ready for pick-up. Upon final review, the roof is completed and can be double-checked next week. The disposal bin service was unable to pick up their bin, so pickup has been scheduled for one day hence, August 25.
All of the roof ballasting was removed until the surface was exposed. It was cleared to a point where EPDM could be rolled out onto the surface.
Each run of EPDM was fully-adhered to the roof surface using a bonding agent. After one run was finishing drying, we would move onto the next one.
To ensure watertightness, we apply liquid rubber coatings over the seams formed between each run of EPDM.
We had to customize the EPDM to fit around this cluster of rooftop appliances. To waterproof the base of each unit, we used seam tape and liquid rubber coatings.
  Service Followup: September 2, 2015 The job site is now considered complete, and the EPDM roof replacement was done successfully. Below are photos of the finished project, as taken by the roofing team handling the site.

The roof replacement was wrapped up with a new scupper and drain installation.
