Sloped Shingle Roof Replacement, March 2013, Edmonton

This client's ranch house bears a shingle roof getting on in its years, and they reached out to GRS to help them replace the roof with a newer shingle system. GRS oversaw the job through its completion, ensuring that the steep slope of the roof did not cause any problems for the technicians on site. Roof Report: March 29, 2013 The attending technician arrived on site for 9:00am, set to take preliminary photos of the site. When the technician arrived on location, they carried out an¬†inspection to the state of the roofing system. As can been seen from the photos below, the house is in a rural area with a shingled roof primarily consisting of steep-angled roofs. There was minimal hail damage, which was one of the main concerns of the client. There was, however, one spot on the bottom edge of a roof (with an overhang above) that was obviously water damaged and rotten/sunk in. In this area, the gable was missing a drip edge that would need to be replaced. There was some moss growing around the former edges and valleys, near some missing fascia and soffit.       IMG_0775 IMG_0774 IMG_0759 IMG_0758 IMG_0757 IMG_0739 IMG_0738 IMG_0737 IMG_0736 IMG_0735     Materials Required: April 10, 2013
  • 155 Bundles of Owens Corning¬†Harbour Blue Shingles
  • 12 Bundles of roof capping
  • 12 Bundles of starter shingles
  • 7 Turtle vents

Roof Report: May 5, 2013 The reporting technician was able to attend the site on two different occasions to check in on progress and the waterproofing before major wind storms came by. They covered up some in-progress sections that were then-exposed to the elements; making sure that the shingle system was shedding water and preventing ingress during the whole process. There were some problems installing shingles to the steep turret of the roof, requiring some re-work when the weather permitted it and the senior roofing technician was able to return. Along the rest of the roof, however, the shingles were able to be installed properly and without any noted major issue.           CODE: 20464 Contact Us Call our 24 hour emergency roof repair at 1.780.424.7663.
