Edmonton Commercial Flat Roof Repair, March 2015

This commercial client in Edmonton required a significant amount of repair work to ensure their flat roof would pass inspection. The report follows our initial inspection and the subsequent repair process.
Inspection, March 13, 2015: We met with the client onsite at 10:30 pm to take a look at the BUR roof that needs a 2x2 ft. vent curb deleted and another new curb installed. He would like us to install two sleepers on the roof tied back into the membrane. Two gum boxes are to be installed as well, one for a gas line and one for an electrical line to go through the roof. This a single story with easy access all around the building. We did a cut test and found that the roof is made up of a 3 inch structural strammit with 2 layers of 1/2 inch fiberboard and mopped felt. The problem with this kind of roof is that the vapour barrier is the skin of the strammit and comes in 4x8 sheets. This means that any patch would have to be at least to the nearest truss and be supported with 2x4 boards under the cuts of the strammit opening. For any warrantied work, we should tie in the strammit vapour across the patch and this needs to be done from underneath after the patch is applied. This would also require a 3x3 ft. hole to be cut out of the ceiling and should be handled by the client ahead of time. The other option is to replace a full sheet of strammit which may include a new complete tie in around the next curb beside it (depending on the layout of the strammit). We could just cover the hole with 1 inch plywood using no insulation, then use peel and stick, and torch cap the BUR. I would not suggest warrantying this kind of repair, especially right on top of a large commercial stove. These are improvements to be made to pass inspection to get the restaurant operating again. Another issue is the amount of grease that has been dumped onto the roof. This will require a larger patch since the membrane close to the curb will not support a proper tie in of 2 ply torch patch, and will require a 4 ft. area of membrane to be spudded beyond the patch all the way around. The client has requested another 2 curbs, 1 for an exhaust vent and 1 for an intake vent for the RTU to sit close to the sleeper witch would add another 8 – 10 man hrs. to the job. He has requested that we wrap all 3 curbs with ISO and plywood which brings us up to approximately 50 man hrs. for: 1 deleted curb, 3 new curbs to be installed and wrapped, 2 sleepers, and 2 gum boxes. If the new curb is not prepped ahead of us then we will need another sheet of ISO (size to be determined by flange of curb) and plywood to wrap the curb. If there is no ceiling access when we are there then add another 3 man hrs. to cut out and clean up.
Materials Required:
  • (2) 4x8 sheets of 1 inch plywood.
  • 3 rolls of cap.
  • 3 rolls of torch grade peel and stick.
  • (2) 5 gallon cans of sam adhesive.
  • 2 sheets of 3 inch ISO.
  • (10) 2x6 10 ft. boards.
  • (3) 2x4 8 ft. boards.
  • (2) 4 inch gum boxes
  • 2 pails of gum.
  • Assorted screws.
  • 2 cans of spray primer.
  • 5 paint brushes.
  • 3 roller sleeves.
  • 3 tubes of acoustical sealant.20150318_135912_resized 20150318_135919_resized 20150318_135926_resized 20150318_140109_resized 20150318_140112_resized
Roof Report, March 21, 2015: Today we deleted an old unit and added two curbs for new units. This was a difficult task as the roof is very old and quite frankly falling apart. There was also a section (6ft.x7ft.) that we had to remove because the grease from the grease trap had saturated the roof. Once we had all of this cut out and the insulation and plywood replaced, we roofed in the curbs and the greased section. All that is left to do is torch capping on the curbs and then add two more sleepers and roof them in.
As a side note, there are multiple areas around the added curbs that have positive leaks. There are also splits in the roof and major blisters. I pointed this out to the customer and he said he is aware of the leaks but has to wait for approval from property management before fixing them.

Edmonton Commercial Flat Roof Inspection, July 2014

This commercial client requested an inspection and subsequent quotation for their flat rooftop. A crew member was dispatched for the inspection and immediately noticed several water leak issues. Inspection, July 29, 2014: They are getting leaks around three units and one corner detail, an additional leak is coming from an eliminated penetration. All of the lap seal is cracked around the three units and the corner detail. There has been an attempt to patch the leaks with sopra mastic gum in the past, but this would have to be removed for a proper repair to occur. I would need to remove the old lap seal, add flash dorm to the spots that are lifting, and apply new laptop seal to all seams around the leaking areas. This job would take approximately 40 to 50 man hours. 20140729_111236_resized 20140729_111241_resized 20140729_111300_resized 20140729_111310_resized 20140729_111622_resized 20140729_111625_resized 20140729_111631_resized 20140729_111638_resized 20140729_111711_resized < End Report > CODE: 9688 Contact Us Call our 24 hour emergency roof repair at 1.780.424.7663.

Edmonton Commercial Roof Inspection Report, July 2014

This commercial client required a full rooftop inspection by one of our red seal journeymen. The report outlines the many issues encountered on the rooftop and includes photos of the site. Inspection, July 4, 2014: This roof is an SBS Modified Torch on replacement and it was observed in a complete failed condition. The numbers of failure areas are so numerous that itemizing each would take many hours - this report will only explain generally what was observed because the whole roof was considered failed. Generally speaking most of the torch side laps were not heated correctly which in itself has caused the roof to fail. End laps and side laps were found at numerous areas to be less than the required measurements (side laps at 3” and connecting rolls at 6”). There were areas observed where the field rolls were installed over flashing which is opposite of procedure. The termination points of SBS at walls where flashing is required is not done, the rolls were not cut at the corners prior to the next roll installed, and drainage was not designed correctly (the slope is not appropriate). There were numerous improperly applied repair patches at seams that were failed. Much of the detail work at the corners of units and penetrations was done incorrectly, and the flashing membrane at the parapets did not extend in many instances fully up the vertical to the top of the parapet and across and terminating at the outside edge. The stripping at the parapet walls was not adhered correctly in many instances, and it did not extend at least 4” over the field. Considering the numerous application issues the roof application is over-all in a failed condition. 20140428_133742_resized_1 20140428_133747_resized_1 20140428_133752_resized_1 20140428_133824_resized_1 20140428_133847_resized_1 20140428_133901_resized_1 20140428_133956_resized_1 20140428_134002_resized_1 20140428_134011_resized_1 20140428_134035_resized_1 20140428_134059_resized 20140428_134129_resized_1 20140428_134135_resized_1 20140428_134144_resized_1 20140428_134149_resized_1 20140428_135406_resized_1 < End Report > CODE: 14225 Contact Us Call our 24 hour emergency roof repair at 1.780.424.7663.

Drayton Valley Flat Roof Repairs, May 2014

This client was provided a quotation with various options including full roof replacement, roof recovery, and temporary repairs. The client chose to have temporary repairs completed on several drains which had been leaking. Inspection, May 26, 2014: There are five drains that need to be replaced. Four of them are leaking and there is one above roof grade that is not working. There are also seams that need to be fixed in the membrane. We should top up the gum box as well. While at the site I also repaired four corners of the unit. I then resealed down their duct work and fixed one straight lap. Materials Required:
  • 2 tubes of caulking.
  • 1 lb bottle of propane.
  • 1 can of sopramastic.
  • 5 new drains.
13 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 Roof Report, May 26, 2014: I spoke to the customer about what kind of repair they wanted (permanent fix or temporary), and they specified they just wanted a temporary fix. I began my leak inspection in the electrical room and I noticed the leak was coming from around the air unit. I went to the roof (torch on) and found several possible places it could be leaking; the corner laps around the unit, the gum box top, and around the base of the gum box. I touched up all of these areas with sopramastic to prevent further leaking. If that does not fix the leak then it must be coming from the unit itself. When I was finished with the repairs I inspected the building once more and It looked like the leak was starting to slow down. I informed the customer it would take some time for the leak to stop because of the water that was still in the insulation. I advised them to contact our office for a quote on a permanent fix. 1 3 5 6 7 8 9 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 < End Report > CODE: 6113 Contact Us Call our 24 hour emergency roof repair at 1.780.424.7663.

20140329_08225320140329_08234820140329_08235320140329_082404
Roof Report, April 24, 2014: Today we fixed the down pipe and installed an elbow. When I went to install the scupper box I called our project coordinator and he said it had to be a torch-on tie in. The roof was still wet from the previous rain so we are going to leave this until the roof has dried. I notified the customer of the schedule change due to water on the roof and she was okay with it. 11 image Roof Report, May 8, 2014: We installed one scupper with a torch-on tie on to the BUR roof, and I also had to modify the metal where the scupper was placed. There was an uneven balance to the roof so we put more rock on the places where it was needed. When finished with the scupper I had to fix the down pipe that was connected to it and where the down pipe hits the ground. This site is now complete. 0 1   4 5 6  8 9 < End Report > CODE: 13104 Contact Us Call our 24 hour emergency roofing repair at 1.780.424.7663. Mail to: 3428 99 Street NW Edmonton, Alberta T6E-5X5.

Edmonton Commercial Flat Roof Recovery, August 2013

This client required a flat roof recovery to prevent further water leakage on their commercial property. This is mainly a photo journal of the recovery process with some additional information included throughout. Photo Journal, August 1, 2013: Roof Report, August 3, 2013: There is approximately 20 square feet left. Both of the tie-ins are done and will be good until Tuesday. All of the detail, patches, corners, boots, t-joints and scuppers are finished and caulked. All garbage was removed and everything was weighed down, tarped and tied.

We also spoke with the client and explained what the water was from. One of the tie-ins had a minor leak, but once we finish the system it won't leak again. We measured the gutter along the edge with 3 scuppers and determined that we will need a 62' gutter. We have to add a 6" extension into the gutter and the other two will need 24' down spouts. The client would like us to install the gutter and down spouts.

Stony Plain Commercial Roof Leak Inspection, March 2013

This client required an emergency dispatch due to water leaking into their property. A crew member was sent to inspect the rooftop and look for the source of the leak. Roof Report, March 9, 2013:
First I spoke with the client about where the leak was and then I headed onto the rooftop to clear the water and snow away. It is leaking warm water inside and very steadily. It could be the inner water line leaking but this is just a theory. Water continuously drops from the unit right by the air filters and creates a pool all around it.
Water stopped leaking inside and from the unit itself after 15 minutes of clearing the water and snow. I searched for a possible source of the leak in the TPO but could not find anything. I searched around the unit and all of the curbs and seams. Inch by inch I looked, but I did not find a single hole or anything else.
I waited another ten minutes and the leak stopped. Stop time was at 6:52 pm. The client is happy with it being halted.

Edmonton Commercial Flat Roof Replacement, August 2012

This client in Edmonton required a complete flat roof replacement on a multi-family apartment building. An initial inspection was carried out by our crew followed by a complete roof replacement to prevent further water damage. Note: This report also contains additional follow-up service reports.
Inspection, August 30, 2012:
I have measured the apartment building, and have attached photos of the measurements, along with the possible problems regarding the leaks. There are a number of bubbles scattered over the roof, with the biggest bubble being roughly 12 feet long. It is a flat roof (tar and gravel), and by my estimation the current tar and gravel roof is roughly 20-23 years old. As the gum box is in pretty rough shape, I tried to picture as many of the bubbles as I could. However I lost track of them as there are roughly 8 bubbles over a 20' by 20' area. The corners of the building look okay, as do the surface of the pipes. I did not want to disturb the tar and gravel too much as I did not want to cause another leak. I am surprised there is only one leak. With the bubbles being scattered over the roof it would be hard to tell which bubble is causing it, and in time there will be more leaks.

Follow-up Snow Removal Service, March 31, 2013: This was a snow and water removal service call. There was only a small spot of snow and the rest was water. Water covers almost all the roof except where there was a drain or scupper. The average water level was 2' and was removed by pushing the water in tandem with snow shovels. Edmonton-20130207-00396
Follow-up Inquiry, June 4, 2013: Our project manager sent the following email to the client regarding a possible water leak issue (her response follows):
Hi,
I've had some time to sort through your inquiry earlier. I had a tech attend and the roof is extremely sound. It is possible, depending on timing over the weekend, that somehow when the crew attended to do the roof that somehow water got in somewhere. But the roof as it stands now is extremely and unusually sound. And as far as what you previously viewed with those flashings (the comment that the roof may not be done from your previous).... I have no idea how those came off the roof and I don't even want to venture a guess but my roofers re-fastened and all is good. Notwithstanding, here are some points of clarification or future discussion: IF THE ROOF EVER LEAKS AGAIN (or it appears to be the roof at all for any reason) have whomever it is call me the second they see an issue. This is critical so I can assess. I have a suspicion that a roof drain is leaking somewhere in the plumbing and in ideal conditions it will leak. A theory of mine is that when the crew attended and they they pumped water off the roof (and directed it down a drain), this is when the leak occurred - which means there is a breach in the plumbing at a drain (if I am correct). Also, the roofers did mention that at some point you should consider either scuppers at the edge of the roof on each side with a downspout or alternatively more internal drains. They commented that when they attended to re-cover the whole roof that there was a fairly good amount of ponding which isn't good. Internal roof drains are very expensive due to the plumbing costs but external scuppers at 2 or 3 sides would be much less (like 10% of internal drains). The cause of this is that over the years a building settles and isn't level so either more plumbing drains are added or exterior scuppers. I think that about covers it for now. Be sure if there is any sign of a leak that at first sign they call me and we'll get over there at first sign to track the problem down and if we diagnose it's an internal plumbing connection to a drain we can coordinate the plumber for you at that time also. Thanks
Hi, Thanks for the information.  We did have our plumber attend the building yesterday and he did discover an issue with the plumbing in the lower unit, which has since been corrected.  We will keep an eye on it. Thanks so much for your quick response and I hope that we will no longer have any water problems. Regards,

Follow-up Service Dispatch, May 21, 2014:
We fixed a lot of seams that were split and also found some holes that are now repaired. One section was really bad and was ponding so I dried it out and applied new LR to the entire area. One vent was peeling around the base (I also fixed it). I then went through the whole roof with a fine tooth comb and fixed every deficiency with the LR.
Materials Used:
  • .5 pail of trowel grade LR.
  • 1 pail of roll on LR.
