Edmonton Residential EPDM Roof Recovery, October 2013

This client in Edmonton required a quotation for an EPDM roof recovery. The report outlines the recovery process carried out by one of the GRS crews. Roof Report, October 25, 2013: We arrived on site at 9:30 am to measure the roof and order the material for the job. The bin arrived at 12:00 pm. We started to remove the gravel and were about half way done by 6:00 pm. Roof Report, October 28, 2013: The front entrance is finished but the back one is only just started and I will have to continue in the morning. There are some issues with the metal beyond my capabilities but as far as the roof is concerned it will look great when complete.
Roof Report, October 30, 2013:
Today we completed the small EPDM roof at the back of the building and then left to work on another site. We then returned to remove water from the roof area that we are starting on tomorrow.
Roof Report, October 31, 2013: We managed to lay out the first 20 ft. run across the main roof and through most of the details on the roof. The EPDM was not fully relaxed and I have some wrinkles to deal with tomorrow. We will push through and have it sealed by Friday afternoon.
I will require another crew member to assist with the metal wall detail on the smaller roof. There is only a 2 inch lip on the outside perimeter of the main roof, but the existing metal seems to still fit well. I had the crew dry out and prep the next area to be completed and I worked on getting the details done from the previous day. Then we were shut down by high winds.

Roof Report, November 4, 2013: With the crew being down to 3 of us for the day and me leaving for the weekend, I needed to make sure that the roof was 100%. We completed the rest of the details and cleaned up the metal for re-use. Then we installed a tie in and prepped the roof for snow.
Roof Report, November 8, 2013: I am going above and beyond on the details to ensure that the roof will last and not leak. We have 12 ft. x 47 ft. of roof left to install as well as the metal. I am going to need both trucks to get all my supplies and tools back to Calgary.
We managed to finish the field and have a few details left to complete the roof. We had just enough rubber to finish with a few scrap pieces left over. The roof should be completed by Sunday afternoon, short of some metal on the inside walls of the lower roofs. I need another crew member to install those properly as it could cause problems later if not done right. Roof Report, November 8, 2013:  
After dealing with both trucks in the morning we didn't get to start roofing until 10 am. It was slow going due to the weather, but we managed to get 30 ft. of perimeter detail, 1 plumbing vent, 2 curbs, and another 4 ft, of outside detail done on the other side. We still have another 15 ft. of perimeter detail to seal and an over flow scupper to seal in. Then the upper roof will be completed with regards to the EPDM install.
Roof Report, November 10, 2013: We completed the EPDM part of the roof, and I got all my tools and supplies back to Calgary. There were a lot of wrinkles on the roof after we were done but I made sure none of them went through laps.
All of the original metal is secured on the main roof. There were some hinges on the roof hatch that if reinstalled would have made the roof leak, so I left them alone. I left a message with bins by Joe and they will contact me when the bin is removed. After that I will let the crew know that the plywood and clean up can begin. < End Report >

Edmonton Residential Roof Recovery & Skylight Repair, July 2013

This residential client in Edmonton required a roof recovery as the entire rooftop was flooded with water. The client also requires repairs to the skylights to ensure that water does not leak through them. Inspection, July 22, 2013: This is a tar and gravel roof that measures 32.5 square ft. with the lineal footage of the metal being 275 ft. The roof is completely flooded and two skylights on the back of the roof have slow leaks. They have been repaired previously with torch-on membrane. The two skylights need to be built up and we also recommend overflows be installed. The roof condition is poor to fair as there is buckling and ridging is apparent. The client would also like a quote for two 6 x 8 ft. skylights to be removed. Hardware on the roof currently:
  • (6) 4 inch plumb stacks.
  • (1) 12 inch b-vent.
  • (1) 6 inch b-vent.
  • (2) low skylights.
  • (2) pyramid skylights.
IMG_1215 IMG_3031 IMG_3816 IMG_5180IMG_8887 Roof Report, October 4, 2013: The first ten feet are 80% done, extra work was required for the 2 boxed in skylights. Extra time was also needed to deal with the solid wood (cutting it down to 2 inches to support the outside edge of the new iso and fascia board). We boxed in the curb for the north skylights with 3/8 plywood over the torched curb. We then installed RPF around the perimeter and on the 5 ft. center line of the TPO sheet. Following this we installed one run of TPO in the NW corner. Roof Report, October 7, 2013: We completed the seal from the previous day and finished another 10 ft. of roof up to the drain. Due to weather threats we will still allow the original roof to drain while continuing onto the next 10 ft. Roof Report, October 8, 2013: We completed the seal around the chimneys and I went to pick up the rest of the material required to finish the job. Unfortunately during the day the night seal was walked on and water started to drip down after the owners had left. With the water sitting on the hard wood floors it started to curl the corners of the wood. I think they need to be sanded and refinished in a 4 ft. by 6 ft. area in the hallway. IMG_0382 IMG_0383 IMG_0384 IMG_0385 IMG_0386 Roof Report, October 15, 2013: We managed to finish the roof just before the rain hit, but we still have to clean up the roof and ground. A bin was brought at the end of the day so we will have to deal with that tomorrow as well. My plan is to get the crew started in the morning and then complete two other inspections. I will come back to load up the truck and stay overnight again to make sure that the bins are removed from site. The customer is happy with the work and is going to talk to the project coordinator about the floor in his house. IMG_0395 IMG_0396 IMG_0397
