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.

Edmonton Commercial Roof Leak Inspection, June 2012

This client in Edmonton required a roof inspection due to leaking that was occurring during heavy rainfalls. This brief report outlines the initial inspection and includes photos of the site. Inspection, June 13, 2012: Upon arrival at the site we talked with a manager who directed us to the roof hatch and the damaged office area. We spoke to the person whose desk was directly under the leak, and he noted that the leak only occurred when there was very heavy rain. All vents in the problem area described were inspected. The plastic cement was also inspected and it appeared to be solid. We determined that the large unit in the area was the source of the leak (we calculated it to be directly above the leak area). We scraped the gravel from around the unit and lifted up the flashing in order to get a better look, and to expose the area for the incoming rain. After the rain had passed, we inspected both the unit and the office area. No leaks were found in the office area. We swept the pools of water around the unit onto the unit itself, trying to provoke a leak, but there were still no leaks. This led us to conclude that there were no leaks in the roof, and the leak that occurred previously was due to the rain being so heavy that it must have overflowed into the unit itself; if there was a problem with the roof, then the rain today would have exposed it.

Edmonton Residential Roof Inspection and Replacement, August 2011

This residential client in Edmonton required an initial roof inspection followed by subsequent roof replacement. The report outlines the progress undertaken by the GRS crew and includes photos. Inspection, August 1, 2011: I met the client at his house and he told me about the leaking and ice damming problems he has been having. His soffits are currently stucco which is something that is not often seen. It appears that there is only mesh across the soffits holding the stucco so there would not be enough support to cut in soffit vents which can be used on wood soffits. I suggested removing the stucco soffit on the eaves and installing aluminum soffit and fascia to get the air flowing through the eaves as well as adding additional ventilation to the roof.  He has a neat cedar design on the gable fascia’ and would prefer to keep them as they are. We also determined that the roof is due for replacement and he would like some options other than the cedar shingles which are on the roof now. The main house is 6/12 pitch with some 12/12 dormers and gable extensions and there is a low slope section on the back which will require 100% ice & water shield as per low slope application. Material Required: note 9 sq. of this project is 12/12 pitch.
  • 50' Valley metal (brown).
  • 6 air vents (to be cut in).
  • (1) 4” plumbing flashing.
  • 100' facia (dark brown).
  • 5 vented soffits (dark brown).
  • 110' soffit J (dark brown).

The garage is done, and we have the house water proofed and ready for tomorrow. 100_1572 100_1573 100_1574 100_1575 100_1578 100_1580 100_1581 100_1582 100_1583 Roof Report, August 29, 2011: We showed up in the morning and started ripping the low slope, then I found a couple step flashings too short. The valley is double layered but we got it removed and water proofed for the next day. Roof Report, August 30, 2011: Today I went to the site and started roofing while also helping the crew clean up some garbage in the morning. The bin guy couldn’t make it back today so I didn’t get as much garbage removed as I would have liked. I got most of the back of the house done but I had to use the old led plumbing boot as the one I got was an inch too small. 100_1591 100_1592 100_1594 100_1595 100_1596 100_1597 100_1598 Roof Report, September 1, 2011: I removed the old roof from the front side of the house (the steep dormer and the top roof). I found two squirrel holes under the valley and in the fascia. I covered them with step and no squirrels are getting in now. Were all ready to go tomorrow weather permitting. 100_1609 100_1610 100_1611 100_1612 100_1614 Roof Report, September 5, 2011: We went there Friday hoping to get the job done, in the morning I started ripping the steep parts with the crew. Rain hit at around one o clock or so but it only lasted for about a half hour. We got back to work and pushed as hard as we could. This site is now complete. 100_1619 100_1623 100_1625 100_1627 100_1629 100_1631 100_1632 100_1633 < End Report > CODE: 13109 Contact Us 24 Hour Emergency Roof Repair. Telephone: 1.403.873.7663.
