Roof Leak Repair in Edmonton AB, December 2014 and July 2015

Below you will find an assessment and field report from the Edmonton roof leak repair crew for a residential client. The roof had been experiencing leaks on two occasions due to a lack of proper ventilation and insulation. Assessment, December 12 2014: By the time we had arrived, the leaking had stopped. However, our client still had buckets out in her kitchen for water collection. The client also showed me the garage, where there appeared to be water damaged on the ceiling. Again, no evident leaking at the time of assessment. A roof inspection was also completed, and we found 4 in. of ice damming.

Second leak site
  Installation, July 20 2015: When I arrived on-site, the client showed me two leaks. One was in the living room and another in a bedroom. Both leaks were in line with each other. On the roof, a crack running half the length of the roof was found - the same cracked that was fixed the year before. The crack had probably reoccurred due to a lack of insulation and venting. We fixed the crack again with LR and the client was notified about the insulation and ventilation.

Commercial Roof Recovery for Existing Client in Edmonton AB, April to June 2015

Below you will find a series of quotations for an existing commercial client. We had previously dealt with some leaks for them as outlined here. This time, the client required a roof recovery for a 28 ft. x 44 ft. garage. Client files request, April 20 2015:
I know that you quoted on the small garage, we would like another quote that requires the following: layout, retrofit, TPO roof, no asphalt.
Quotation, April 20 2015:
  • Layover, remove stone.
  • Install new 2 in. polyisocyanurate and 0.45 mm TPO membrane.
  • New flashing is required all around to match the front of the building.
Assessment, June 22 2015: 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.

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
New quotation based on assessment, June 22 2015:
  • 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

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.
