  • Shoveled snow.

  • Unloaded material.
We spoke with the client and they are happy with what’s going to be done for the scope of work. We received the key for the garage (stored material inside). The siding and metal are going to be one full long day of work. Inside the garage all of the joists are uneven and must be cut with a skill saw then sanded in a few places. Tools must also be cleaned. We told the home owner that we will fix the drain. photo (10) photo (11) photo (12) photo (13) photo (14) Roof Report, November 26, 2012:
  • Removed rotten wood.
  • Started framing.
  • Shoveled snow.
  • Installed J-channel.
  • Picked up material for site.
We talked to the client and he was happy with the work done so far. He asked if it’s possible for us to order the rest of siding. We still have a lot of work to do ripping the wood and finishing prep. It is going to take 2 days for us to finish. photo(1) photo(3) photo(4) photo(5) photo(6) photo(7) photo(8) photo(9) photo(11) photo(12) photo(13) photo(14) photo Roof Report, November 27, 2012: Today we ripped off the old plywood and installed the J-trim. The plywood under the siding must be replaced because it is rotten. We agreed to install the siding and soffit but the plywood under is rotten and we are not able to nail into it. We spoke with the client today and explained to him that we are going to be getting a quote for the extra work to be done (as well as the cost of the new plywood). He replied that he is okay with it and he is ready to sign for it when the quote is prepared. photo(22) photo(23) photo(24) photo(25) photo(26) photo(27) Roof Report, December 20, 2012:
  • Framed garage.
  • Installed plywood and 2x4.
We didn’t have any metal tools to cut the J-trim soffit and fascia, and the compressor broke down on us which slowed down the job process. None of the siding was delivered today so we worked on the framing and installing plywood. We are also waiting to get an electrician to fix some electrical before we cover it with plywood and siding. I talked to the client and he said he is going to be taking care of it tomorrow. We are going back tomorrow first thing in the morning to finish framing and siding. photo(1) photo(3) photo(5) photo(6) photo(9) photo(10) Roof Report, December 21, 2012:
  • Finished framing.
  • Made sure it’s water proofed.
  • Installed soffit and fascia.
It was -24 with the wind chill today, we had a hard time using the compressor and the nail gun as they kept freezing on us. That is why we had to do framing manually which slowed down the process of work. I spoke to our project manager and explained that we finished a few things but the weather is not in our favour and is slowing us down. He advised to stop for the day as it is much too cold to work outside and advised us to talk to the client to explain the situation. I went and spoke to the client and he understands completely. I told him we are going to be back to finish his garage when it’s warmer. The client does not mind us coming back later on to finish. photo(11) photo(19) photo(20) photo(21) photo(22) photo(23) photo(24) photo(25) photo(26) Roof Report, December 29, 2012:

  • Installed all siding.
  • Cleaned tools to client's satisfaction.
  • Cleaned garage.
  • Cleaned outside of the garage.
  • Shoveled snow off of the roof.
Today we finished installing all siding, soffit and fascia. We also cleaned the garage and outside garage, as well as the client's tools.

Spruce Grove Industrial Roof Inspection, February 2012

This client in Spruce Grove, Alberta required an inspection for their industrial rooftop. The client needed options for a full roof replacement. This report outlines the initial inspection of the site. Inspection, February 14, 2012: All of the sloped sections on the rear of the building are 3/12 pitch, one has shingles and the other 3 have rolled roofing. None are properly flashed (steps, wall flashing), and they have mastic at the transitions. The one lower section has no siding and the OSB board is exposed to the elements. You can tell the wood is worn due to the weather. This roof is leaking and the insulation is wet where they do have it. I would expect there to be substantial wood rot. All sections will need to be re-insulated underneath. Standstone roof inspection 001 Standstone roof inspection 002 Standstone roof inspection 003 Standstone roof inspection 004 Standstone roof inspection 009 Standstone roof inspection 011
The curb here is built over the south parapet and has many flaws (exposed plywood, sitting on a gas line boot, pipes going through that aren't properly sealed). The metal flashing is sealed with duct tape, wires are going through metal with no sealant, plus storm collars that aren't caulked. We have loose metal on the parapet and against the wall. This appears to be ready to come off in a stiff breeze.

Plywood is splitting and is not covered with ballast at the transition. There is a hump in the roof, not a blister. This runs east/west approximately every 15', this has to be on a structural beam. Drain cover caps are broken and the A/C unit is sitting on rotten wood. Three gum boxes need filling. There is a serious crack in the lower roof which appears to go right through to the deck.

If so I will need to purchase these tomorrow morning.
