Leduc Liquid Rubber Roof Recovery, August 2011

The report below follows the several visits that GRS made to this industrial client's building. Repairs were carried out on a handful of occasions, with a liquid rubber roof recovery performed as well.   Quotation Delivered: July 26, 2011   GRS sent over quotation to the client covering coatings (recovery) and replacement options. Given the reported state of the roof, spot-repairs (typically a more temporary measure) would be ill-advised to carry out, and best served by recovery methods that GRS has a great deal of expertise in administering. The client elected to move forward with a Barr coating repairsĀ (liquid rubber), so we scheduled them in for service the following month for the next availability to coverĀ such a large building's square footage.   Roof Report: August 7, 2011 The crew spent half an hour on-site troweling Barr mastic to the troublesome areas. Four of the stacks were not completed as they were either too wet, or disconnected from the roof itself. On the lower section of the roof, they troweled some more mastic to leaking areas and washed out the eaves on the breezeway. Once the liquid rubber had dried up enough to ensure a good seal and cure, the crew departed the site.   Roof Report: July 11, 2012 A year later, the client reached out to GRS once again to discuss repair options for the roof. We maintained that the spot repairs carried out the previous summer were enough to solve then-present problems, but would do little to prevent further issues in other areas of the roof. The client brought one of our technicians around the roof and showed them the areas of concern. The attending crew member was not involved in the previous year's project, so the GRS project manager and client both corroborated the repairs carried out with the Barr mastic/ liquid rubber solution. The rest of the team showed up and had a toolbox meeting to cover the pertinent paperwork and safety documents prior to working on the roof itself. They inspected the tar membrane above the breezeway and found several water blisters that would need to be addressed. The area was pressure washed and dried prior to ten blisters' cut/drain/repair with scrim and high-build.   There were some other leaks that the client had noticed, so another one of the crew members followed them inside the building to see where water was entering. Then, they went up onto the roof via high lift and found the problematic areas. All discovered leaks (and some potential future failures) were caulked and re-sealed to shore up the waterproofing defences. Once the caulking, high build, and pressure washed sections of the roof had dried (off) some more, the crew got to the application of liquid rubber. Barring some minor troubles with the pump system gumming up, the site's progress moved along very quickly and they got two coats applied to the roof. The job was then considered complete.   Covering with high build DSCF0481 DSCF0482 DSCF0483 Edmonton-20120710-00035 Edmonton-20120710-00036 Edmonton-20120710-00037 Edmonton-20120710-00038 Edmonton-20120710-00039 Example of areas cut out Leduc-20120711-00043 Leduc-20120711-00044 Leduc-20120711-00054 Leduc-20120711-00055 Leduc-20120711-00057 Leduc-20120711-00059 Upper roof above reported leak With high build applied     Request for Service: December 11, 2012   The client send word over to the GRS project manager once again to notify us that there were some more leaks appearing in the roofing system. They wanted to know if they could be repaired before springtime when the snow would melt off and cause some more serious issues. We put them in the queue for service, but made sure to note that it would need to be during a warm couple of days to allow a rapid removal of all the snow and subsequent water from the roof. That would allow for a winter inspection of the roof, problem areas, and a repair all within the short window of time. If the winter weather doesn't cooperate, the repair would need to be carried out in the springtime.     CODE: 7506 Contact Us Call our 24 hour emergency roof repair at 1.780.424.7663.
