Assessment, November 27 2014: We arrived at 8:00 am and searched for roof leaks around the unit for two hours. With no luck, there was still the remaining task of installing the last drain unit over another one of the units which needed work. The roof on the second building is a 28 ft. x 44 ft. BUR roof on a wood deck that leaks in too many places to fix. One drain on the northwest corner and three other penetrations, as well as two vents and a motor exhaust are going through the roof. There is a 4 in. wood detail around the edge and one scupper. We suggest an EPDM roof recovery. The maintenance manager for the site also gave us a call to tell us that a leak was found on the west wall of the building. The crew found numerous rips in the roof along the membrane; it had been completely separated from the drain. Scope of Work:
  • Gum patches to three or more areas
  • Replace the drain with a new 3 in. unit
  • Roof replacement using an SBS 2 ply system
  • Estimated time: 20 hours


  • 5 ft. of cap
  • 5 ft. of base
  • 1x can of spray primer
  • 1x 3 in. drain
  • 1 can of mastic
  • 1x roll of 6 in. reinforcement mesh
