St. Albert Liquid Rubber Roof Coating, July 2014

After GRS had attended to this site several times the year prior [links below], they returned to this residential client's building to inspect the liquid rubber resurfacing and see what steps need to be done to cease future hassles on this roof. Roof Report: May 23, 2014 We scheduled time with the client to come back on location now that the weather's greatly improved (last work was done December 30/31). The attending technician removed the tarps left behind several months prior, noting the amount of water that needed removal. With it dealt with, the tarps could come off to expose the liquid rubber for further investigation. First thing noted was that the liquid rubber had not bonded properly to the surface below; there were some water pockets underneath it and the whole surface would need to be re-done. The technician left the site for 4:00pm, after 1.5 hours' stay.   Roof Report: July 22, 2014 The team arrived on site and went up onto the roof to deal with the water buildup on the tarps. There was about two inches of it across the roof surface, so it had to be removed before work could commence. Once finished, the roof was cleaned with a pressure washer and dried off in order to deal with the blisters under the liquid rubber. A 15' section of the roofing surface was cut away, in addition to the numerous blisters that had been forming. Peeling back the roof underneath revealed that the existing roof sealant was incompatible with the original application of liquid rubber; this explained why our recovery the previous year had not bonded properly. The whole area was cleaned up and left to dry further for the evening. They departed at 5:45pm 20140722_091755_resized 20140722_091759_resized 20140722_104806_resized 20140722_104817_resized 20140722_112851_resized 20140722_114553_resized 20140722_114603_resized 20140722_172046_resized 20140722_172059_resized 20140722_172116_resized   Roof Report: July 23, 2014 Work started on site at 7:30am, where the crew went up to the roof to inspect the morning dew buildup and assess what would be carried out in the day's work. There were some pine needles that had blown off nearby trees in the previous night's high winds, littering the site with minor debris. They started sweeping the roof clear and started on a new, proper base coat of liquid rubber. With the base coat applied, they adhered a layer of meshing to roughly half of the roof's surface, and paced over forty blisters and holes in the roof. At that point, the team realized that there wasn't enough liquid rubber on hand to complete the job. Two of the crew departed the site to pick up more liquid rubber, returning an hour later. The rest of the roof was given the proper coat of liquid rubber before the team started cleaning up the site and disposing of the garbage they'd swept off earlier in the morning (leaves and needles). Come 4:30, the site was clear and the technicians left for the evening. 20140723_162515_resized 20140723_162507_resized 20140723_161329_resized 20140723_161326_resized 20140723_161310_resized 20140723_161303_resized 20140723_161248_resized 20140723_142718_resized 20140723_142712_resized 20140723_120509_resized 20140723_120414_resized   Service Follow-up: September 25, 2014 Having dealt with some returning problems on this roof, the GRS crew wanted to ensure that everything was solved in the previous visit's work. They went back up onto the roof and inspected for any points of failure or deficiencies in the liquid rubber application. Everything looks fine, but the prior problem areas were given a second coat of liquid rubber to shore up the defences and ensure a more watertight seal.   Previous Visits: CODE: 60 Contact Us Call our 24 hour emergency roof repair at 1.780.424.7663.
