Our client, located north of Edmonton, reached out to GRS to explore the option of installing DecTec Membrane on a balcony off the second floor of their building. Scope of Work: 1) Removal and disposal of existing roof assembly under the existing membrane that would interfere with new surface installation. 2) Removal/replace rotten sheathing (if any). 3) Mild increase to slope to encourage drainage. 4) Door openings may have to be customized to account for new slope. 5) Flashing may have to be re-done to accommodate new slope as well. 6) Deck railing removed and replaced to ensure safety. 7) Waterproofing of walls to allow for vertical installations. Ensures watertight fit. 8) Upon completion of 1-7 (as necessary), floating deck can then be installed to support viable systems (SBS Modified Torch, EPDM, TPO, or PVC), though DecTec does not require a floating deck to sit atop the membrane. Proposed Solution DecTec bore GRS's recommendation for this project, as we employ all of the technicians typically required to see a successful installation. The client was simply looking for a quote for this type of project, which we were happy to provide.
