Edmonton Commercial Roof Welding, February 19 2015

Below you will find a field report from our Edmonton roofing repair crew responding to a commercial client. The client advised us that we would supply all the materials required, requiring only our labour. 
Field Report, February 19 2015:
Today we had to roof in 1 curb that was 18 inch x 40 inch. The curb was then wrapped with PVC and welded in four corners. This was a little difficult due to the amount of melting snow that was surrounding the area. What also made this process tricky was being situated on a downward slope, as all the melting snow and water was pouring into our work area. We were able to manage the pooling water enough to keep the work site dry to complete welding in the DecTec and furnace.

Engineered Liquid Rubber Roof Recovery in Edmonton AB, October 2014

Below you will find a quotation, project manager notes, and a field report for an engineered liquid rubber roof recovery for an industrial metal roofing client in Edmonton, Alberta. Quotation, October 15 2014:
  • Engineered liquid rubber recovery to complete metal roof.
  • Pressure washing to clean, water test, and assess.
  • Fasteners will be tested and replaced as required to complete the roof deck, penetrations, and gutters.
  • Sheet metal repair and penetration saddle fabrication as required.
  • Remove old caulking as required.
  • Hand trowel all penetrations, roof to wall connections, fasteners, ridge, horizontal sheet seams, hidden gutters, and roof edge at external gutters with mesh and high grade rubber as required.
  • Apply liquid rubber coating, allow cure time, repeat hand trowel process above, and apply second coat of liquid rubber.
  • Liquid rubber to full inside face of parapet and top of parapet cap.
  • Ten year manufacturer warranty is extendable to twenty year maintenance agreement.
Project Manager Notes This roof structure may be a candidate for either a repair-maintenance program or an engineered liquid rubber coating - you may not have to replace it. I would not recommend a standard reflective elastomeric coating, or the SPF spray foam (with standard reflective coating), as this standard does not last well in a Western Canadian climate. Liquid rubber performs well in our climate as it has up to a 1200% expansion/contraction rate. If considering SPF for R-value, we strongly suggest covering the spray foam with liquid rubber or EPDM. Our crews do this work everyday with success. Generally speaking, metal roof systems are constant aggravating roof structures. Industrial systems have a deficient design - they are water-shedding, and not waterproofing, coverings. Metal expands and contracts more than any other roofing material and tend to leak from ice/snow loads. Leaks are also intermittent at seams (vertically where sheets are seamed together and horizontally where seams meet between sheets), penetrations, fasteners, around the perimeters at gutters, under the eaves, and at joints between roof and wall connections. Rust and corrosion may also develop. Traditional caulking or coating lasts a few seasons at best. Remedies are either spot repairs - maintenance with caulking or engineered coatings. Our recommendation in this instance is a high and engineered 2-ply liquid rubber polymer coating with a 10 year warranty, with the option of a 20 year maintenance contract for extended leak protection. Our client approved the quotation the same day for a roof recovery. Field Report, October 22 2014: After picking up the liquid rubber, we went to the work site and prepared the roof with seam tape around all seam tapes and penetrations. We then began coating the roof with liquid rubber and completed this site by the evening.

Sherwood Park Commercial Roof Resurfacing, July and August 2014

Below is a series of field reports for repairs done to a commercial property by the Edmonton roofing repair crew. Our initial assessment showed that the roof was an ideal candidate for a complete replacement due to the large scale of repairs which were quoted.  Scope of Work:
  • Complete roof resurfacing including:
    • Gravel removal.
    • Spudding.
    • Cleaning.
    • Membrane resurfacing.
  • Two coats of liquid rubber.
  • Removal of all obsolete pitched pockets, with the extension of the current active pockets to a minimum of 6 in.
  • Fabrication of custom sheet metal grease trays
Field Report, July 7 2014: After completing a pre-install meeting with the customer, we took measurements for the pitch pockets, grease trays, and pitch pocket caps. We then went to the shop for a material requisition and they advised us our order would be ready for tomorrow afternoon. Our crew delivered the scope of work as promised over the next few weeks. As we had anticipated, this series of spot repairs was only temporary and it was only a matter of time until our client called us back. Ideally, we would like to see this particular site undergo a complete replacement since the structure's sustainability is running out and will only require more repairs as time goes by.
Field Report, August 5 2014:
Today we installed a full length safety railing along the eaves of the roof. We began by loading 11 patio stones and high density foam to the roof. We then installed the walkway and took our client on a tour of the completed work. He was pleased with the repairs.

Edmonton Multi-Family Flat Roof Replacement, May 2012

This client required a full flat roof replacement due to water leaking into the roof penetrations of this vintage roof. Drain openings are also clogged with liquid tar which had pooled on the roof in the past. Amateur repairs had been conducted previously however a proper roof replacement is needed. Inspection, April 22, 2012: The client reported that this is a 1968 building with the original roof still attached. The building currently has many leaks. This roof is rectangular in shape and measures at 53' X 67'.  Upon inspection this roof must be replaced immediately. Amateur repairs have been attempted, but have left the roof in desperate shape. On the south east corner of the building there is a pool of liquid tar. It is pouring into a penetration in the roof that was likely once a drain or plumbing vent. Tar has now clogged that opening. Drains have deteriorated to a non-functional stage. At some point a torch down repair was attempted, however it now appears water is getting underneath it and spreading throughout. The rear parking lot should leave ample space for bins and equipment. Materials Required:
  • 50 2x4's (12 ft. long).
  • 45 sheets of plywood 4x8 x 1/4 inch.
  • 6 bags of bat insulation (r value 20).
  • 1 box of 3" wood screws.
  • 1 bag of roller sleeves.
  • Iso 4x4 @ 2"  lifts.
  • Fiber board 4x4 @ 1/2" (250 sheets).
  • 1 box of  1/2" roofing nails.
  • 2 pails of hex plates.
  • 10 rolls of non perforated felt.
  • 6 rolls of armour bond flash (peel and stick).
  • 12 pack of quick dry primer (asphalt).
  • 4 rolls of fabric 6".
  • Ardon hoses.
  • 3 barrels of liquid rubber.
  • 2 pails brush grade.
    Roof Report, May 26, 2012:
Arrived on site and started ripping the old roof off. Once the roof was close to being cleaned off, two crew members started building walls. Wall frames were all put together and the roof was cleaned and prepared. We put all of the finished walls on the roof and then had lunch.
After we laid and fastened the iso, then the slope package with fiber board was fastened to that. There were high winds so we didn't spray, but we rolled on liquid rubber (embedded the mesh in it and rolled on over top of that).
Additional Scope, May 28, 2012: The following emails between our project manager (italicized) and the project coordinator show the discovery of a new issue related to joists:
The crew just called me from subject site. They have torn off the rotted sheathing and found 5 of the 2x4 joists rotted beyond use. What is the protocol here? Do we need to call an engineer? Can we sandwich the rotted joists with new 2x4's (assuming there is anything left to nail to)? If we need an engineer is there someone we use?
Joists can be spliced on either side with simple spikes. However, I need to see photos and need measurements (span of splice) to ascertain the next step of execution. Ultimately the splicing is typically a sister joist attached to either side for full length simply nailed together (unless laminated beams which require bolts). You will need approval in writing for the scope they prefer, waiving of our responsibility to their preferred scope, and the agreement to change order costs which cannot be ascertained until I see detailed photos. Thanks.

Saw there was rotted wood so we laid paper and iso/slope package up until the rotted wood. Went to Consolidated and Totem to get some lumber and other materials We brought all of the rubber right to the rotted areas. By the time we got the go ahead to fix the rotted area it was too late to start the repair (we had rain in the forecast).

Roof Report, May 31, 2012:
Arrived on site and offloaded all materials and tools on roof. Then we set the sprayer up and sprayed our 1st coat. We let that cure and then sprayed a 2nd coat. After this we brushed the rubber on the canopies.
Roof Report, June 12, 2012:  
Today I measured the cap flashing for the roof and noted some roofing material and wood still on site from the roofers. There is loose fascia and missing fascia. All plumbing vents still require caulking where the neoprene rubber meets the aluminum.
I left the site and went to Sinclair's to order metal for the project. Sinclair's informed me that the order should be done in 1 week.

Commercial, Industrial, Residential Roof Repair Crews 24/7
The Edmonton region is to be the first of a series of local roof repair blogs that GRS is  launching This Month GRS delivers Roof and Emergency Roof Repair Services to the Edmonton area. providing services such as: Commercial, Residential, and Industrial Repairs to Flat, Metal, and Pitched Roofing, installing Shingles, Tile, Slate, Shakes, Rubber, Metal, and more. This week, General Roofing Systems Canada (GRS) launched the first of what are a series of local roof repair articles. What makes the articles the most unique is the factor of the articles being submitted from the roofers themselvesWhen asked, the GRS roof repair managers had these comments:
Flat Roof Membranes
Metal and Flat Roof Repair
When General Roofing Systems first started this process a few years ago (with a main roofing article blog), management would select roofers  randomly to write and post articles covering various roof repair problems and solutions they would encounter while working in the field. In fact, every crew is required to provide daily reports from mobile offices in the crew trucks. These roof inspection, repair, and maintenance reports were actually the original inspiration behind the articles being posted to a blog. "The process of our roofers reporting from the field was already in our policy.  Now it is just a daily part of the job, the same as checking in and out of a work site each day." "Our customers would always comment about the articles in meetings, it was a great way for us to know that they were a success and helped  us to continue with the articles."
222
Roof Maintenance on Commercial, Industrial, and Residential
  "The home-owners, commercial property owners, and industrial facility managers  are able to find information that assists them with specific problems they are experiencing  with their roofs. I think it's only obvious that the local roof repair articles are even more of an advantage to our customers than our main roofing blog would be due to local weather issues and advisories such as warnings against  hail and snow." We learned this from the  recent articles on the wind storms in Calgary that blew the shingles off thousands of roofs, or the roof collapses last winter in Edmonton when we had upwards to sixty workers shoveling snow off roofs at a time.  Or in cases such as the troubles the Vancouver area had with several  metal and flat roof repairs. It is a great service to our customers to be able to provide instant access to solutions  for when disaster strikes. Our customers are then able to have access to several links that connect them automatically to the  Emergency Roof Repair knowledge and a real-time on-site response. "From what I understand, we become the published authors and our customers will be able to contact us direct from the articles either online, by direct call to the crew truck, or as required in person, all at the local immediate level. I think our customers will really find this be a great benefit." 
Emergency Roof Repair Office
An Alberta Crew Reporting on Internet From Crew Truck
In summary, GRS customers  will now have direct access to articles, photos, videos of roof repair problems (and solutions). They will be able to visit with  senior roof repair technicians at a local level either on-line or in person , to solvarious roofing problems. It puts the contributor at a local level, providing real time and being that the contributor to the roof repair article is the actual roofer doing the repair, the service is then that much more accurate and personal. The contributors of the articles are required to send information to the repair blog and are responsible for responding quick and efficient responses to all home/business owner inquiries. The Edmonton chapter of our blog is only the beginning, we hope to branch out to all areas and keep providing assistance in all shapes and forms.

Below you will find a report and quotation for an ongoing commercial client in Edmonton, Alberta from our roofing repair crew. The first is a winter call for snow removal, the second is for a summer call inquiring after a roof replacement. More reports and photos will be posted as they become available Assessment, January 18 2011: Scupper drains on the north and south sides were blocked with ice (frozen drain pipe). I suggested to disconnect the pipe, clean the ice out of the scupper, and clean the snow from the roof. There are a lot of safe areas to throw snow from, so this should be an easy snow removal. Field Report, January 19 2011: We arrived at 8:30 am and removed approximately 6000 sq. ft. of snow from the flat roof. The ice from the two scupper drains was also cleaned and we applied ice melt. When the winter season was finished, the client called us back for a roof replacement quotation. Quotation, July 31 2011:

Residential Roof Window Leaks in Edmonton AB, July 2011

Below you will find an assessment and photo journal from the Edmonton roofing repair crew. The client had called in about leaks coming through his roof window caused by a poor installation. The system was only a year old. Work Order, July 10 2011: There is a roof window in my pool area that is leaking. The cedar shakes were replaced, but the problem subsists. Assessment, July 14 2011: Note that  the client had the back side of his roof replaced last year. The problem area was a roof window 40 ft. wide. There is only a three-quarter inch. curb. Instead of building it up with a row of shakes and overlapping the top, the previous roofers tries to flash it. It is now leaking but they will not come back to take care of it. My solution is tearing up three to four rows from the top of the roof window, building it up (BUR) with a row of shakes, flashing over top with valley metal, and sealing it to the curb. 36 in. Ice & Water up from the flashing, and then 18 in. felt will be used for protection. 35 ft. of ridge capping will also be replaced. Quotation, July 14 2011:
  • Remove three to four rows of shakes above the sky window.
  • Install a row of shakes to the full length of the sky window to get the roof up to curb-level.
  • Install flashing from roof deck to curb and seal to curb.
  • Install 36 in. Ice & Water shield from roof deck onto flashing.
  • Reinstall 18 in. roofing felt.
  • Reinstall three to four rows of heavy cedar shakes.
Repair Photos, July 18 2011:

We began by removing four levels of shake from the sky window.

  1. Site Visit Done. Initial Assessment Completed. Photos on file (see Krain Consulting report).
  2. Options for roof replacement, roof overlay, repairs, and regular maintenance attached.
    1. Full roof replacement is not required except at garage portion where the installation crew will determine how much to take out when they open roofing system.
    2. An EPDM, TPO, or PVC roofing system overlay is a reasonable option for this roof.
    3. A roof overlay saves significant costs, provides environmental relief as old system does not end up in the waste, and all the roof overlay systems are very successful.
    4. The deciding factor when considering a roof overlay is whether the preference is a black roof (drawing the sun in) or a white roof (a cool roof for more efficient function).
    5. Repairs to existing roof is a consideration, but not recommended considering the number of failures.
  3. Roof Flashing.
    1. The existing roof flashing is in moderately good shape. It could be replaced but it is most definitely not required. We suggest keeping as much of the old flashing as possible.
    2. We suggest keeping as much of the old flashing in place as possible. When the new roofing system is retrofitted, the Senior Installation Manager would instruct the crew to save as much of the old flashing as possible (unless client decides to simply replace all flashings).
    3. The roof flashing invoicing (whether all new is ordered or the existing flashing is modified) would be a separate invoice. Our sheet metal / flashing crew is about two weeks behind our flat roof membrane applicators so we would bill the flashing separate of the roofing system.
  4. Eaves, Downs, and Scuppers.
    1. Crew to be instructed to slope roof in such a way that the flow of water moves toward the east and south.
    2. Custom fabricated architecturally designed eaves and gutters with external scuppers (drainage to gutter area) will be added to back of home and east side. Client and installation manager to determine where the downspouts will send water to on east side of property.
5. Perform regular maintenance once or twice per year thereafter.
