Grasslands Commercial EPDM Roof Repairs, July 2011

This commercial client required the GRS crew to apply EPDM cover strip on his rooftop. Additional minor repairs were completed on the AC unit on the building. The client was also presented with recommendations for future repairs. Roof Report, July 20, 2011: We went to Grasslands today and applied the EPDM cover strip to the drip edge making it fully sealed. There were two curbs with fans sitting on top that needed to be wrapped. This will prevent water from getting inside the building because there was only a piece of wood on top of the curbs which isn't a good enough seal. As for the large AC unit on the existing roof, because they didn't want to crane it off of the building when we started the job I had no choice but to wrap the curb and apply water block around the outer perimeter of the unit. It was however leaking where the water block was applied, the only reason I can think of why that happened was because it rained before the water block had fully dried. I did tell the client that all I can do to fix the issue is put more water block around it and if the problem persists that we will have to crane off the unit. That way I can add another piece of rubber and re-wrap the curb, tucking it underneath the unit which is how we would normally do it on any new curb. They are aware of this problem but they haven't decided how they are going to deal with it yet. Other than that everything else is sealed up and good to go.

Since the client did not want the large AC unit craned off the roof, our technician had to wrap the curb and apply water block around the unit.

We started the process by wrapping over the curb that the units were sitting on.

Cover strips were also applied around the wall connections of the building, with emphasis on the corners and seams which intersected with the fixture. Once adhered, water block was applied.

Edmonton Residential EPDM Roof Repair, April 2011

This client had an EPDM overlay installed by the GRS crew previously. A subsequent repair was required due to two holes being found in the roof, likely caused by snow removal. Roof Report, April 20, 2011: We found two holes in the EPDM at this residence. The first one seemed to be a snag (probably caused from shoveling snow), and we suspected that this was the one that the client specifically mentioned. The second hole was caused by a screw head puncturing up through the EPDM. A crew member patched both holes while I searched for any others issues (none were found).
One of the holes we found was caused by a screw puncturing through the EPDM.
This was easily resolved using an EPDM patch with liquid rubber coatings and spudding around the seams.
The other hole was a snag caused by shoveling snow off the roof. This was solve using the same method.
While there was significant standing water on the roof from melting snow, it was draining correctly. No other problems were found on the roof.
