Roof Report, February 27, 2015: We started on the drains and it took extra time to remove the old ones because there was used gum all over them. Then we started on the scuppers and had them completed by 230 pm. We then started on replacing the nails in the plumbing vent curbs with screws (using rubber grommets). Lastly we started to install the down spouts and finished our day on site by 7 pm.

Edmonton Flat Roof Replacement, June 2014

GRS was contracted by this client to replaced their aging roof. Unfortunately, inclement weather dogged them at every turn, but the team persevered to get the roof installed as quickly as possible.
Table of Contents:
June 19 [Service Follow-Up]
Materials Ordered:
  • 190 Sheets of FR Board
  • 70 Rolls of 250 cap (grey)
  • 10 Rolls of sopraflash flamstick
  • 6 Rolls sopralap coverstrips
  • 3 Pails elastocol stick
  • 2,000 soprafix plates
The drains are also in need of replacement, and will be ordered once measurements are taken on-site. Roof Report: May 30, 2014 The roof was 'a lake' at the start of the day, and we were unable to get the existing roof ripped off. The bulk of the day was spent pumping water off of the roof. The weather reports were calling for more thunderstorms, so by the time the standing water was removed, there wouldn't have been a point in attempting to begin the roof removal so the day was finished early. 20140530_120428 20140530_133757 20140530_133803 20140530_133825_4 Roof Report: May 31, 2014 We started ripping off the roof today and got a section 20' x 40' finished. There would have been more progress, but the team encountered rotten wood underneath that needed replacing. Again, weather reports called for thunderstorms in the late afternoon, which arrived at a perfect time. The ripped-off section of the flat roof was sealed up and the team was off the roof just as the sky opened up to deliver the storm. 20140531_095740 20140531_131320 20140531_131331 20140531_131432 20140531_182945 20140531_182953 20140531_182958 20140531_183013 20140531_183028 20140531_183032 20140531_183108 Roof Report: June 1, 2015 We weren't willing to risk ripping more of the flat roof system today with more weather reports anticipating heavy rainfall, despite the sky looking relatively clear for the first portion of the day. Materials were moved onto the part of the roof already roofed-in, so the next section to rip is ready to go, with nothing in the way to hinder progress once it begins. 20140601_115156 20140601_115148 Roof Report: June 3, 2014 Today we were able to rip off a little bit more than 1,000 ftbefore the rain came in, leaving the job site around 65-70% completed. Stripping and the cover strips are on, and all of the laps are sealed. 20140602_185456 20140603_193517 20140603_193521 20140603_193607_1 20140603_193711 20140603_203757 20140603_203812 Roof Report: June 4, 2015 Today's rain prevented significant progress, but a 25' x 25' section of the flat roof was ripped, covered, and sealed before the more-serious rainfall arrived around 4:00pm. 20140603_203812 20140604_164653 20140604_164657 20140604_164703 Roof Report: June 5, 2014 It rained for most of the day, and water was building up to hinder progress. The bulk of the day was spent pumping water off the flat roof as it rained, assisted by the team pushing water towards the pump with brooms. 20140605_092146 20140605_092153 20140605_092158 20140605_105443 20140605_105445 20140605_105449 20140605_111716 20140605_111720 Roof Report: June 6, 2015 The crew put in a long day with the weather's long-overdue cooperation. The remainder of the roof has been ripped and covered, with all of the drains and plumbing vents installed as well. photo 1 photo 2 photo 3 photo 4 photo 5 Roof Report: June 7, 2014 We finished the 180 patch for all of the plumbing vents before the rain managed to roll in for about 1:00pm. 20140607_130654 20140607_130704 20140607_130711 20140607_130735 20140607_130745 Roof Report: June 17, 2014 Today, we managed to get all of the gooseneck vents installed before the rain set in. It didn't rain too long or hard, so we were able to stay on site to make sure that everything was done for the day. There were 13 goosenecks to install, in addition to time-consuming detail work. Now, the roof is completely sealed around every penetration and we're ready to finish the cap sheeting. All-in there are 24 penetrations through the roof; 13 goosenecks, 9 plumbing vents, and 2 drains. There are also three existing curbs (dryer vent, gas vent, and the roof hatch). 20140617_154228 20140617_154312 20140617_154326 20140617_154332 20140617_154339 20140617_154347 20140617_154356 20140617_154406 Service Follow-Up: June 19, 2014 The team returned to the job site after a heavy rainfall to examine water flow and drainage, take photos, and check the seals. Everything looks good, so the job site is now complete. 20140619_174758 20140619_174800 20140619_174803 20140619_174817 20140619_174819 20140619_174843 20140619_174848 < End of Report > CODE: 10040 Contact Us Call our 24 hour emergency roof repair at 1.780.424.7663.

Grande Prairie Multi-Residential Flat Roof Snow Removal, 2011

Below you will find a series of reports from the Grande Prairie roofing repair crew. Initially, they had been called in for snow removal on a condominium complex flat roof. This culminated into further inquiries for a roof replacement in the summer season. Inspection, January 18 2011: The scupper drains on the north and south side of the roof were blocked with ice, and the drain pipe was frozen. I suggested to disconnect the frozen pipe, clean the ice out of the scupper, and clean the snow off the roof. The client gave their approval following our observations. As far as cleaning goes, this roof should be easy, as there are many areas to throw the snow off from. Roof Report, January 19 2011: I arrived at 8:30am and cleaned approximately 5,000 to 6,000 sq. ft. of snow from the client's flat roof. The ice was cleaned from the two scupper drains as well, followed by an ice melt application. Service Followup, January 20 2011: Although the snow removal is complete, the client still has frozen drain pipes. The north scupper seemed to be running when I left the site. There is an internal drain on the south side that will be helpful when water starts to accumulate down on that end. Leak Investigation, January 27 2011: The drain on the south side needs to be repaired with torch-on and SOPRAMASTIC. Our client also inquired about a roof replacement for next summer. Roof Report, January 29 2011: Based on our investigations, we carried out a drain leak repair with a torch-on membrane. Mastic was applied as a sealant. Eventually this drain will require a replacement. Quotation, April 4 2011:
