Edmonton Roofing Replacement, December 2014

This report details a residential roofing replacement as well as an initial quotation with various options for the client. The roof had water leakage due to issues with the sealants and draining systems. Additionally the roof was found to be blistering and splitting in areas. The initial email sent from our project manager to the client:
Good morning, Please find attached the quotation options for various membranes for the roof over your garage per the inspection report from our Red Seal Journeyman (see report below my signature at bottom of this email and quotation as attached). Unfortunately because of the small size the per sq rate is significantly higher than if you were to do both your house and garage - so if your house may be a consideration let me know and I'll revise the pricing for you. I've included options for replacement of all membrane types. Once you have had opportunity to review give me a call or email and I'll assist you with any questions you may have. Thanks again for your consideration!

The following is an inspection report from one of our crew members who inspected the site initially: The biggest problem for this house is that they have only one 2 5/8 drain for 3/4's of the roofs.  During heavy rainfall water pours over the edge of the parapet. There is a large amount of water ponding which has reduced the life span of the torch on roof. There is also moisture inside the system and it is apparent that the fiber board laps are beginning to buckle. The sloped roof on the house is in okay condition and will last another five years however the flat roof on the garage will not make it another two. There are signs of rot near the drain on the roof of the garage (there is already a BUR roof and torch on roof on top). I do not recommend a recovery on this roof because of weight issues during the winter, and because of the rotten substrate which will cause issues with attaching another roof. The lower flat roof is 1300 square ft. and the long side is 48 ft. I have given the client two options with the drainage: he can go with a drip edge into a gutter with two drains along the long side, or go with two drop drains in the low spots through the soffit. If we decide to go with the gutter on a new roof, we should add a 1% slope package on a torch-on system. If going with drop drains we should go for a new roof with a EPDM system. Regardless, the old roof needs to be removed to inspect the plywood substrate (in order to deliver a 20 year roof which he is looking for). 
With either drainage we are going to need approximately 100 ft. of downspout and nineties to run the water to the back alley and away from the house.

Materials Required:
  • 20 x 100 ft. 60 mil EPDM.
  • 10 x 100 ft. 6 mil Poly.
  • 90 sheets of 2 inch iso.
  • 45 sheets of 1/2 inch secure rock.

  • 1x 3 gallon pail of quick prime.
  • 1x 5 gallon pail of splice wash.
  • 10 tubes of lap sealant.
  • 2x tubes of caulking.
  • 2x 6 inch rolls of seam tape.
  • 1 roll of form flash.
  • 1 box of rags.
  • 1 scrub pad kit.
  • 8 roller sleeves.
  • 8x 4 inch paint brushes.
  • 1 roll of garbage bags.
  • 600x 3 inch hd fasteners.
  • 600x 3 inch plates.
  • 40 sheets of plywood.
  • 100x 3/4 inch deck screws.
  • 100 ft. of drip edge.
  • 12 ft. of flashing for the chimney and smack pins.
  • 48 ft. of 5 inch brown gutters with hardware and matching gutter guards.
  • 100 ft. of down spout.
  • 10x 90 degree down spout and hangers.
  • 100x self taping brown sheet metal screws.
  • 2 rolls of 250 grey cap.
  • 1 roll of flam flam.
  • 1 can of spray primer.

Daily Report for Dec 4, 2014: The crew arrived at 7:30am to lay down the iso board as well as the rubber bug. At 5:00pm it started to snow so the crew left the site for the day.
Daily Report for Dec 5, 2014: Arrived on site at 9:00am to determine the best way to apply the liquid rubber. The client was also on site and had many questions so some time was spent talking with the client. Most of the day was used to install the liquid rubber. Daily Report for Dec 7, 2014: Arrived at 8:00am and spent most of the day installing the metal. There was some detail work to do around the perimeter and the chimney. The lap seal was also installed. The crew did a walk-around with the client who is satisfied with the work done so far. The gutter still needs to be installed. Daily Report for Dec 12, 2014: Gutter is installed and the job is 100% complete.

Roof Report, April 24, 2014: Today we fixed the down pipe and installed an elbow. When I went to install the scupper box I called our project coordinator and he said it had to be a torch-on tie in. The roof was still wet from the previous rain so we are going to leave this until the roof has dried. I notified the customer of the schedule change due to water on the roof and she was okay with it. 11 image Roof Report, May 8, 2014: We installed one scupper with a torch-on tie on to the BUR roof, and I also had to modify the metal where the scupper was placed. There was an uneven balance to the roof so we put more rock on the places where it was needed. When finished with the scupper I had to fix the down pipe that was connected to it and where the down pipe hits the ground. This site is now complete. 0 1   4 5 6  8 9 < End Report > CODE: 13104 Contact Us Call our 24 hour emergency roofing repair at 1.780.424.7663. Mail to: 3428 99 Street NW Edmonton, Alberta T6E-5X5.
