Commercial Roof Leak Repair and EPDM Recovery in Edmonton AB, Nov 27 2014

Below you will find a report from the Edmonton roofing repair crew responding to a leak call from a commercial client.  Quotation, September 10 2014:
  • Repair four leaks on tar and gravel roof
  • Complete roof replacement options: Spray foam only (+ top coating as required - polyurea, liquid rubber, or EPDM), TPO or PVC (white reflective roof), 2-ply SBS modified bitumen (torch-on) or 4-ply BUR, 4-ply engineered liquid rubber roof, TOUGH ROOF
  • Sustainable roofing recovery (overlay/reconditioning): Spray foam only, EPDM, TPO or PVC, 2-ply SBS modified bitumen, 1-ply coat tar, 2-ply engineered liquid rubber
Assessment, November 27 2014: We arrived at 8:00 am and searched for roof leaks around the unit for two hours. With no luck, there was still the remaining task of installing the last drain unit over another one of the units which needed work. The roof on the second building is a 28 ft. x 44 ft. BUR roof on a wood deck that leaks in too many places to fix. One drain on the northwest corner and three other penetrations, as well as two vents and a motor exhaust are going through the roof. There is a 4 in. wood detail around the edge and one scupper. We suggest an EPDM roof recovery. The maintenance manager for the site also gave us a call to tell us that a leak was found on the west wall of the building. The crew found numerous rips in the roof along the membrane; it had been completely separated from the drain. Scope of Work:
  • Gum patches to three or more areas
  • Replace the drain with a new 3 in. unit
  • Roof replacement using an SBS 2 ply system
  • Estimated time: 20 hours

Materials:

  • 5 ft. of cap
  • 5 ft. of base
  • 1x can of spray primer
  • 1x 3 in. drain
  • 1 can of mastic
  • 1x roll of 6 in. reinforcement mesh

Residential Roof Shingle Wind Damage in Edmonton AB – May 2013

Below you will find an assessment and quotation for a routine residential call by our Edmonton roofing repair crew. The client's shingles had experienced wind damage on approximately 100 sq. ft. on one side of their sloped roof. Assessment, May 8 2013: An area of 55 sq. ft. worth of roofing was blown off by mind. We performed a temporary repair using Ice & Water, as well as replacing some shingles. The total amount of damage that could be colour-matched today is 90 sq. ft.

Re-shingling complete
  Quotation, May 13 2013:
  • Minimum charge repair: replace wind-blown 3 tab dual brown IKO 25 year shingles
    • 85 - 100 sq. ft. area
Although the repairs were trivial in this case, and our technician took care of some of it during the assessment phase, wind damage can have major effects on roofing shingles. Whether it is wear and tear on the method used to fasten down the shingling, or incredibly strong wind conditions, allowing shingle repairs to build up will only aggregate into longer term problems for you. An unprotected roof can cause interior water damage, as well as moisture build-up leading to a loss of structural integrity.  < End Report > Code: 164 Contact Us Call our 24 hour emergency roof repair at 1.780.424.7663.

Acreage Re-Roofing in Edmonton AB – December to February 2011

Below you will find a series of field reports from the Edmonton roofing repair crew for an acreage re-roofing. We took special care in terms of quality control to ensure that the acreage did not experience damage from crew equipment or the shingling process. Assessment, December 14 2011: This is a 3-tab shingled roof with a 10/12 pitch. There is only one layer of shingles, fifteen air vents, nine goose necks (three large ones), five plumbing flashings, and three skylights. There is a small dead valley in the rear (no leaks), but may need some flashing work done against the wall. there is also a small porch on the east side that requires some work. The property has good access points for loading and garbage bins, but we will need tarps for falling debris.

  • Sloped re-roof
    • Remove roofing, dispose, apply new system. Choose from:
      • Premium SBS modified shingles
      • Slate/shake
      • Metal, rubber, shake, tile
Work Order Agreement, February 17 2012:
The material is scheduled to arrive between now and Tuesday. The crew has been instructed to leave it in the driveway so that vehicular and pedestrian traffic is not obstructed. They will begin work at some point next week, although it is still hard to point the exact day at the moment. The disposal bin is a point we need to discuss. The site manager told me there is a concern with gardens and such. What I would like to do is give your phone number to our bin driver so that when he is coming drop the disposal bin, he can call you in advance to be sure you are home and direct where he can or cannot leave the bin.
Work Order Scheduled, February 20 2012:
We will begin your re-roofing project on Tuesday in the morning around 11:00 am. On Wednesday they will continue on and will likely have more crew members available. Our project manager will drop by to check in with you and pick up a signed copy of the order form, ensure that the bin is in the right location, and whatever else needs to be discussed so we are all on the same page. 'Looking forward to seeing you Tuesday morning if you are there!
Property Protocol, February 22 2012: The garage is not being done for this site. A new road has been installed from the main road to their home. There are markers showing where the asphalt of this roadway to their home is and where not to drive, as there is fresh topsoil. The bin must be placed on asphalt at the residence on the left side lined up behind in line with the beaver sculpture. The bin truck cannot leave asphalt residues (if there is not enough room to turn, the truck will have to back out down the acreage road to the main road). Crew trucks can park right at the house to unload, but then need to be relocated to the main road (two minute walk). Trucks cannot leave the asphalt at any time. Tarps must be used at all times under all workers when ripping and shingling. Pay attention to where there are obvious flower gardens. Jacks and planks will be required, as this is a steep roof. Use magnets daily, not just at the end of the job. The site at large must be kept spotless. All PPE must be in order. Client Request
I wonder if it would be possible to start on the north side of the house. We have house guests and they are staying in a bedroom on the south side. They arrive today and be pretty tired.
Quality Control, March 5 2012: Our site inspector checked the work site a week in to ensure that the quality was up to par for this estate property. The inspector's notes are in the photo captions.

Roof Snow Stop Installation in Edmonton AB, February 2012

Below you will find a hazard assessment and initial report from the Edmonton roofing repair crew for an existing residential client. You can find the previous work we did at this location here. Hazard Assessment, February 22 2012:
  • Steep pitch; install ropes and use full PPE
  • Ensure that all jacks and planks are secured due to wind and general weather conditions
  • Be aware that the homeowner has pets which are running free on the property
  • Use controlled drop and lift zones to limit the possibilities of outside parties becoming involved in a dangerous situation
  • Expect long distances when loading materials up the ladder
February 23 2012: After arriving on-site at 7:00 am, we measured and drew up a diagram for a snow stop. We then went to the shop to order a snow stop, but they did not have the correct colour. The client was not so concerned, so long as the colour was relatively close. We then went to repair the skylights in the afternoon and cleaned up. The snow stop will not be ready until tomorrow, so we will have to come back to install it. February 25 2012: We spent the morning shoveling snow from the driveways and made a walking path to where our work site was. Jacks and boards were placed on the bottom rows and stripping began. Some crew members went to the shop to pick up capping and galvanized valleying. Unfortunately the snow stop is not ready yet. More reports and photos coming soon. < End Report > Code: 18610 Contact Us Call our 24 hour emergency roof repair at 1.780.424.7663. Mail to: 3428 99 Street NW Edmonton, Alberta T6E-5X5.

Industrial Metal Roof Snow and Ice Removal Edmonton, January 2011

Below you will find a series of field reports and correspondence from the Edmonton roofing repair crew responding to a call for snow and ice removal.  Field Report, January 21 2011: In the morning, we broke ice and removed snow from the work-site. After taking a lunch break, there was more than enough left for us to complete the day with. There are only two of us on-site so this may take some time. Client Correspondence, January 22 2011: We appreciate the hard work your crew has been doing despite only have two available. It would be great if you guys could work on getting the parking lot taken care of on that side of the building first as a priority.  Leak Assessment, January 24 2011: We assessed leak issues and determined an ice dam at the gutters and the dam is pushing the gutter away from the roof's edge. It is unsafe to move ice and snow without the entire gutter or ice falling on pedestrians or vehicles below (an entrance way is right below the problem area).
