Edmonton Commercial Roof Penetration Install, October 2014

This commercial client reached out to us about having two roof penetrations installed properly on their EPDM roof. The roof was very muddy and needed to be cleaned before the installation could begin. Photos sent by the client showing the roof penetrations: 20140814_102849_resized 20140814_102930_resized Roof Report, October 17th, 2014:
This was an EPDM roof which the client needed two penetrations installed on. The roof was very dirty and covered in mud which took some time to clean. They had used silicone to put a temporary seal which we had to remove once we had cleaned the area. We roofed it in with form flash and the job is now 100% complete. This was an hourly dispatch plus materials.
Materials Used:
  • 24ft. of 12 inch form flash.
  • 1 can of primer.
  • 1 bag of rags.
  • (1) 1 gallon can of splice wash.
  • 2 tubes of lap seal.

Edmonton Commercial Roof Leak Inspection, April 2014

This Edmonton client required a rooftop inspection to determine where his water leak was originating from. A GRS crew attended and discovered that the entire roof is very unstable and should be replaced as soon as possible. Inspection, April 23, 2014: When I arrived on site I began my leak inspection and noticed there was a very large leak in the middle of his shop. I went on the roof and I noticed 3 to 4 inches of water across the whole rooftop. We pumped off all of the water that we could but with the large amount of rain it was a losing battle. Under further inspection I noticed the roof only had one drain and due to where it was located it wasn't draining properly. This roof is also very soft and unstable, and it feels unsafe like it could cave in at anytime. I advised the customer of my concerns and let him know it would be in his best interest to replace this roof as it it very unstable. I also told him we would come and try to fix his leak when the roof dries up. 3 6 7 10 12 13 16 18 20 < End Report > CODE: 16814 Contact Us 24 Hour Emergency Roof Repair. Telephone: 1.403.873.7663.

Edmonton Industrial Grade Roof Gutter Install, December 2013

This commercial client in Edmonton required a gutter installation on their metal rooftop. A GRS crew was dispatched to complete the work; this report outlines part of the installation and includes photos of the site. Roof Report, December 20, 2013: We set up the scaffolding but first had to dig out ice so that we had an area to put the scaffold. Then we put up 2 pieces of gutter (caulked and sealed) but can't put up anymore because a truck is parked in the way. We have to pick up and move the scaffolding by hand due to the ice (we cannot use wheels).
The riveting and 2 downspouts are done on the portion that we have up, unfortunately the truck is still blocking us from doing more. We had to break 6-8 inches of ice every 4 feet for scaffolding and downspouts. We cleaned up the site before leaving.

Edmonton Industrial Gutter Installation, October 2013

This client requested a quotation for an industrial gutter installation, downspout installation, and snow rakes. Our crew was dispatched to the site to perform the necessary work. Inspection, October 19, 2013: The crew arrived for their initial inspection and measured the gutters, downspouts, and snow guards. Roof Report, December 16, 2013: The crew unloaded their tools and materials at the work site. Two crew members started removing snow and ice so that the old gutters could be removed. The ice rake also needed to be removed. By day's end all of the old gutters had been removed and the new gutters were prepped for install the following day. Roof Report, December 17th, 2013: At 8am the crew filled out safety documents before beginning to work. Then they boxed the ends of the two existing gutters on the side of the building. Following that, they boxed one end of the new gutter and worked on installing gutters on the front east end of the building.

After lunch the crew continued to install more gutters as well as two pieces of flashing that had come off of the building. Holes were then made for the downspouts. Finally snow was removed from the west end of the roof where gutter installation is to continue.

  The client reached out to us regarding the time line of the roof membrane installation. The following emails are between our project manager (italicized) and the client: Are we planning to attempt something tomorrow?  Need to give status of repair job plans by 8AM as they will be bugging me again.  Just to recap they will be asking for more detail on repair job as time stretches on and more detail on backup plans if weather stays cool and wet until snow falls.
Hi, To complete the roof membrane portion we require the roof to be dry on top for at least 24 hours. As such, the weather will determine what day that occurs. Based on the forecast our scheduling is for this Wednesday or Thursday. If for some reason we cannot accomplish this task before freeze up then we will hoard. However, in all our experience with this product we have never had to, we have always, every year completed all scheduled sites before freeze up. The material can be applied to - 10 celcius which gives us ample time. After we have completed the last coat we then have to do metal which can be done in any temperature. When we consulted the manufacturer about the recent moisture after spraying it was made evident that there were a few isolated areas that did not have time to cure and of course moisture penetrated. Also we were advised that any existing moisture in the system would manifest in the form of a blister. If no blisters are present after completion we are good to go. If present, we cut that section out and replace. Thanks.

Edmonton Residential Roof Leak Repairs, July 2012

This residential client required an initial inspection to determine the source of a water leak followed by minor repairs. The GRS crew proceeded to caulk one of the roof vents as well as the roof to wall connection. Roof Report, July 12, 2012:
We arrived on-site and conducted the tool box meeting. Then we checked the attic of the garage and found wet insulation and noted water was coming through a light fixture. The crew proceeded to the roof and had a very difficult time identifying where the leak was coming in from. All shingles look as they should and water was not identified coming in from the nail holes. The client informed me that he thought there was a problem with the roof vent and suggested we re-caulk the vent on the outside and check for any abnormalities. We caulked all around and under the vent. Some movement was noted in the vent and it was rectified. We also suspected that the roof to wall connection may be to blame so that was caulked as well.

The client suggested we caulk the vent which he had previously encountered problems with.
IMAG0090
Caulking was applied all around and under the unit.
IMAG0091
Our technicians also suspected that water was entering through the wall connection. We applied caulking there, as well.
IMAG0092
The garage attic inspection uncovered wet insulation and water entering through the light fixture.
