Edmonton Commercial Flat Roof Inspection, July 2014

This commercial client requested an inspection and subsequent quotation for their flat rooftop. A crew member was dispatched for the inspection and immediately noticed several water leak issues. Inspection, July 29, 2014: They are getting leaks around three units and one corner detail, an additional leak is coming from an eliminated penetration. All of the lap seal is cracked around the three units and the corner detail. There has been an attempt to patch the leaks with sopra mastic gum in the past, but this would have to be removed for a proper repair to occur. I would need to remove the old lap seal, add flash dorm to the spots that are lifting, and apply new laptop seal to all seams around the leaking areas. This job would take approximately 40 to 50 man hours. 20140729_111236_resized 20140729_111241_resized 20140729_111300_resized 20140729_111310_resized 20140729_111622_resized 20140729_111625_resized 20140729_111631_resized 20140729_111638_resized 20140729_111711_resized < End Report > CODE: 9688 Contact Us Call our 24 hour emergency roof repair at 1.780.424.7663.

Edmonton Residential Flat Roof Inspection and Repair, October 2013

The report follows a repair on a residential rooftop that is in fairly good condition. No leaking is present however there are issues with the penetrations on the roof as well as the flashing and vents. The home owner requires an inspection of the roof to pass and therefore needs the repairs completed immediately. Roof Observation Report: With respect to the request to observe the roof assembly at said location, the following are noted: The roof overall is in fair to good condition and looks to be approximately 10 – 15 years old. No leaks identified. No soft spots observed. There are however deficiencies with the penetrations on the roof. It appears as though the roofers installed the roof penetrations without a proper tie into the BUR and just graveled over the flanges. Hence, the lead flashing on the plumbing vent(s) is slowly sliding down hill and bending. Additionally, there is some minor damage at the front end of the house were the felt has been exposed to the sun and has dried due to UV and separated from the house. This will lead to leaks if not repaired. At the back of the house, there are some sun dried spots due to UV along the gable drip edge but this will not be an issue for another 1 - 2 years approximately. The roof definitely requires one plumping vent replaced and a small area of gum and jewt in the front of the house to pass inspection. The other vents are going to cause problems within the next 5 years or sooner. I would need approximately 16 – 24 man hrs. to replace the one plumbing vent and remove some flashing at the front of the house which would bring this roof to a “pass” condition. However additional time is required to properly install all penetrations (approximately an extra 32 - 38 man hours). 1 2 3 4 5 6 The crew arrived on site to begin repairs on the roof. The lead flange for the plumbing stack (completely cracked) was fixed. Next they spudded the field and installed a high top. Finally it was gummed and then poly was applied on top. Gravel was added for the finish. Materials Used:
  • 1x roll of Jewt (sopralastic reinforcement).
  • High Dome Flashing for 4" Vent.

  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 Flat Roof Repair and Inspection, October 2011

This report follows an inspection request from a client in Edmonton who was concerned about possible water leaks. After the initial inspection was finished some light repair work was completed by our crew. Inspection, October 17, 2011: I measured the perimeter of the roof (40' by 35'), the customer would like us to redo the mesh and cement along the metal cap flashing as it is cracked in many places. There is a skylight that is leaking near the center of the roof and the diameter of the skylight is 3'. I did not find any splits or cracks in or around the skylight but the customer would like to have it resealed to prevent further leak issues. The roof holds water in large areas as can be seen in the pictures, he would like to know if these areas need to be replaced or are okay until he sells his house. There was a test cut done by another roofing company and he was told the insulation was soaked but he would like a second opinion. Judging by the water ponding and the discoloration of the cap sheet, I am led to assume that the insulation underneath is in fact soaked and probably needs to be replaced. grs pics 087 grs pics 088 grs pics 089 grs pics 090 grs pics 092 Roof Report, November 28, 2011: Attached are some pictures of the troweling work that we completed at this site. The whole perimeter metal flashing was cleaned off and re-cemented as per the customers request. The only thing left to do at this site is put in the new skylight (when it is ready). 101_0010 101_0011 101_0012 101_0013 101_0014 101_0015 101_0016 101_0017 101_0018 101_0019 101_0020 < End Report > CODE: 7908 Contact Us Call our 24 hour emergency roof repair at 1.780.424.7663.
