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 Industrial Downspout Installation, August 2012

This client required downspout installation, liquid rubber application, and cap flashing maintenance. These repairs were necessary to ensure a water tight rooftop. This project will form a two part article as an additional liquid rubber roof recovery was done for this client. Project Coordinator's Notes, August 16, 2012:
The scope of work is: Supply and install 2 downspouts outside of building. Replace all residential downspouts to industrial (all powder blue). Remove EPDM liner at gutter, vertical up wall 12", and vertical to roof connection on top of roof 12". Build up liquid rubber to slope to each drain. Cap flashing maintenance. Liquid rubber application to seam in the middle of roof (2' x 186'). Liquid rubber application to seam by and up vertical wall (4' x 186'). Liquid rubber to be applied on all penetration. Anything outside of the scope listed above will be considered a change order and additional charges will apply over and above the dollar amount stated in this contract. For this job you will require 4 drums of metalsafe. We may need to bring additional drums of metalsafe from Calgary if there are not enough for use on this job in Edmonton.
Additional Notes, August 23, 2012:
This client wants all of the residential downspout replaced with industrial downspout. A total of three downspouts from the upper roof to the lower, and a total of five from the lower roof eavestrough connected to the existing drains and extending through the industrial soffit to the ground. The upper downspouts are fairly straight forward. The lower ones are a little more complex and will require removal of the soffit/siding in the locations of the downspouts/drains (extending the industrial size downspouts through the soffit, then replacing the soffit). The bottom section of downpipes will have to be fastened into stone so a hammer drill will be required to fasten pipe straps. Colour of all the downspouts is to be Slate Blue. You will need a 32' ladder for access. I have compiled a material list needed below, as well I have attached pictures of the project. As before please keep me informed of the estimated start date, and the date you complete the project.
Material Estimation:
  • 13 elbows.
  • 154' industrial size downpipe.
  • 16 pipe straps.
  • 8 outlets.

Roof Report, November 6, 2012:
  • Put high build around air conditioning unit.
  • Swapped water from the gutter.
  • Inspected leak areas.
There was a lot of water in the gutter so we did not roll any high build on it. It has to be completely dry for us to put the high build on. photo (6)photo (7)photo (8)photo (9)photo (10)photo (11)photo (12)photo (13)work 129 The second part of this project is continued on another article.
