Residential EPDM Roof Replacement, October 2015, Edmonton

This client's home bears a low-slope roof that they wished for GRS to replace with an EPDM system. The crew of technicians went out to their location and completed the roof replacement in two days' work.   Materials List: October 13, 2015 Two technicians went out to the client's location and inspected the roof for what kind of deficiencies might be encountered during the roof replacement. During their inspection, they noted down the expected materials that would be required for the job.
  • 2x Rolls of EPDM
  • 7x Pails of EPDM bonding adhesive
  • 1x Pail of primer
  • 1x 6" roll of form flash
  • 2x Pipe boots
  • (84) 4' x 4' sheets of fiber board
  • 4x Roller cages and sleeves
  • 1x Box of seam tape
  Roof Report: October 16, 2015 The team arrived on site for 8:00am, and had their disposal bin arrive by 9:00. At that point, they were already underway ripping off the old roofing system and making good progress. It was after then that they found that there was no plywood with the order, just 2x6 boards. They departed to get the requisite plywood, and returned an hour later around noon. The boards were all mechanically fastened into place, with some of the EPDM laid atop it. The crew departed in the early evening, set to return the following day and focus on the remaining EPDM and metal flashing.

We removed the existing EPDM system until the plywood was exposed. Many of the boards were either rotting or had holes in them.

Rotted wood that had eventually given way, creating a prominent hole in the assembly.

After installing new fiber boards over the assembly, we applied bonding adhesive to the underside of the EPDM.
    Roof Report: October 18 The reporting technicians notes were brief, but the site is now marked complete with the EPDM and flashing that was left over from the previous day's work. Everything went well and the roof was covered without any issue or hindrance of note.
