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.
