Work Order, June 4 2014:
  • Scope: Re-roof house, attached garage, and small rear shed
Materials
  • Field Shingles - 33 Sq of Malarkey Legacy Antique Brown Shingles (129 Bundle at 4 bundle sq)
  • Cap Shingles - 100 lineal ft of  Malarkey product number 224 - EZ Ridge 10" to be set up over the ridge vent strips at ridge of roof
  • Starter Shingles - 300 lineal feet of starter (whichever is recommended with Malarkey Legacy Shingles)
  • Eave drip edge - 140 lineal feet of color drip edge metal to be installed at eave of roof roof sheathing
  • Ridge Vent - 60 lineal feet of Lo-Omni Ridge vent is 9" wide for install under the Malarkey EZ Ridge 10" shingle
  • Plumbing Boots - 3 neoprene or plastic
  • Goose Necks - 2 colored goose-necks with-out baffle (screen only)
  • Valley Metal - 100 lineal feet of coloured valley metal for open metal roof valleys
  • Underlay -  31 square of synthetic breathable underlay choice GAF-Elk Deck Armour
  • Ice and Water - 240 lineal feet of 44" ice and water
Specifications
  • Inspection of attic space - check intake air at soffits to ensure insulation is not covering intake air that cools the attic.
  • Check exhaust venting at ridge to check if it is clear and calculate proper exhaust required for attic size - approximately 1 sq foot of exhaust venting is required for every 100 - 300 sq ft of roof attic space to properly ventilate the attic.
  • Check insulation for moisture damage. Damaged insulation will not work anymore (it will have no R Value) and must be removed.
  • Inspect sheathing for water damage.
  • Flashing all along the eaves-trough.
  • Rake-flashing along all rakes/gables.
  • Ice & Water along all eaves, valleys, flashing edges after sheet metal installation, back pans, and penetrations. Ice and water membrane is used to keep freeze thaw ice in the gutters from wicking back up and under shingles and warming at the sheathing and creating a roof leak in to the home.
  • Replace all vents and bathroom exhausts, with optional ridge venting included.
  • Supply and install metal back-pan for chimney.
  • Replace all goose-neck vents.
  • Replace all vents and exhausts with rubber-sealed screws instead of shingle nails at exposed areas (regular shingle nails can work back out of sheathing over time and can leak because the nails are exposed and caulking them will over time fade).
  • Storm-nail all shingles. Storm nailing shingles requires six nails vs. four nails in to each shingle.
  • Re-caulk storm collars and rain-caps with polybitumen or high grade polymer caulking (tar caulking will crack). Using a high quality UV resistant caulking in roofing is important.
  • Clean all gutters and downspouts.
  • Dispose of all materials, and full cleanup with magnetic roller so that no roofing nails are left in grass to hurt household pets or children playing.

Field Report, June 20 2014: We arrived on site to be met with tearing cedar shake. There were thousands of nails to remove, which took hours. It began raining today as well. Hopefully there will be more luck with the weather soon.

Edmonton Cedar Shake Repair, April 3, 2013

This client's residential home required replacements to some of the shakes on their roof. Our crew began evaluation on the roof, and determined the appropriate resolution to the client's original concern. The shake roof is 22-25 years old, meaning that some of the shakes start to get soft and porous. Furthermore, the caps start to split, requiring frequent spot-repair/replacements. March 14 Arrived on the job site. Inspected the roof to determine what materials would be necessary for the job. Poor weather conditions; could not proceed March 19 Replacement cedar shakes and jobsite materials were picked up. March 20 Arrived on the job site again, but snow atop the roof and weather conditions deemed the roof unsafe for work. Had to postpone for another day. April 3 Arrived on site for last time. Whole roof checked over and unfit cedar shakes replaced. The caps were also replaced, in addition to the old roof vents. They were of aluminum build, the new ones have been switched out to brown PVC. Lastly, the skylight was recaulked, and checked for leaks. Job Completed - Materials used: - 5 tubes caulking - 1 bundle cedar caps - 2.5 bundles cedar shakes - roof vents (PVC, brown) image002 image003   CODE: 324 Contact Us Call our 24 hour emergency roof repair at 1.780.424.7663.
