  • Shoveled snow.
  • Prepped work site.
  • Unloaded material.
We spoke with the client and they are happy with what’s going to be done for the scope of work. We received the key for the garage (stored material inside). The siding and metal are going to be one full long day of work. Inside the garage all of the joists are uneven and must be cut with a skill saw then sanded in a few places. Tools must also be cleaned. We told the home owner that we will fix the drain. photo (10) photo (11) photo (12) photo (13) photo (14) Roof Report, November 26, 2012:
  • Removed rotten wood.
  • Started framing.
  • Shoveled snow.
  • Installed J-channel.
  • Picked up material for site.
We talked to the client and he was happy with the work done so far. He asked if it’s possible for us to order the rest of siding. We still have a lot of work to do ripping the wood and finishing prep. It is going to take 2 days for us to finish. photo(1) photo(3) photo(4) photo(5) photo(6) photo(7) photo(8) photo(9) photo(11) photo(12) photo(13) photo(14) photo Roof Report, November 27, 2012: Today we ripped off the old plywood and installed the J-trim. The plywood under the siding must be replaced because it is rotten. We agreed to install the siding and soffit but the plywood under is rotten and we are not able to nail into it. We spoke with the client today and explained to him that we are going to be getting a quote for the extra work to be done (as well as the cost of the new plywood). He replied that he is okay with it and he is ready to sign for it when the quote is prepared. photo(22) photo(23) photo(24) photo(25) photo(26) photo(27) Roof Report, December 20, 2012:
  • Framed garage.
  • Installed plywood and 2x4.
We didn’t have any metal tools to cut the J-trim soffit and fascia, and the compressor broke down on us which slowed down the job process. None of the siding was delivered today so we worked on the framing and installing plywood. We are also waiting to get an electrician to fix some electrical before we cover it with plywood and siding. I talked to the client and he said he is going to be taking care of it tomorrow. We are going back tomorrow first thing in the morning to finish framing and siding. photo(1) photo(3) photo(5) photo(6) photo(9) photo(10) Roof Report, December 21, 2012:
  • Finished framing.
  • Made sure it’s water proofed.
  • Installed soffit and fascia.
It was -24 with the wind chill today, we had a hard time using the compressor and the nail gun as they kept freezing on us. That is why we had to do framing manually which slowed down the process of work. I spoke to our project manager and explained that we finished a few things but the weather is not in our favour and is slowing us down. He advised to stop for the day as it is much too cold to work outside and advised us to talk to the client to explain the situation. I went and spoke to the client and he understands completely. I told him we are going to be back to finish his garage when it’s warmer. The client does not mind us coming back later on to finish. photo(11) photo(19) photo(20) photo(21) photo(22) photo(23) photo(24) photo(25) photo(26) Roof Report, December 29, 2012:
  • Finished installing soffit and fascia.
  • Installed all siding.
  • Cleaned tools to client's satisfaction.
  • Cleaned garage.
  • Cleaned outside of the garage.
  • Shoveled snow off of the roof.
Today we finished installing all siding, soffit and fascia. We also cleaned the garage and outside garage, as well as the client's tools.

Edmonton Roof Repair and Siding Install, May 2012

This report follows a major siding installation and some additional torch-on roof repairs. Our crew was dispatched to complete the work and their progress is documented below. Roof Report, May 15, 2012: We built the roof up with ISO board which required lots of little cuts because when the roof was cut open they didn't cut it straight. We used 3.3 inch board and had to build it up 8 inches which was a time consuming task.
One crew member torched in a gum cup and I did two hours of fire-watch afterwards. We placed FR board on top and then screwed all of the FR board down with 10 inch screws and piranha plates. Peel and stick was applied up the wall about half way down the roof, except under the stairs because they were ripping them out next day. By then it was 7:30 pm and was too late to try to torch any caps.

Roof Report, May 22, 2012: Arrived on site at 8:00 A.M and had a toolbox meeting with all crew members present, they signed all applicable documents. We inspected the siding job and the rigid insulation was complete but some Tyvek insulation had blown off. A crew member left to gather starter strip and hammer tacker. We were able to put up half of the lower section of the siding.

A decision was made to use finishing strips instead of J-channel where the siding meets the soffit and at the separation between the bottom and top half.
We also got some caulking to seal the edges below the window and in the flashing. We then worked on the angled area on the West side of the roof. We took a break from that and started laying starter strip on the upper section of wall above the sloped roof. We then continued laying panels and covered the section. At this point we decided to begin clean up and finish up for the day. Roof Report, May 27, 2012: We arrived on site and continued placing siding until one in the afternoon.  There are only about 10 panels to lay until we're done and we intend to finish by Monday morning. The soffit and fascia will still need to be installed.
Roof Report, May 30, 2012: We have almost completed the project, there are only a few touch-ups and some clean up left to do.
The final tasks are to fill in the last two pieces of soffit, seal up the flashing on the East side of the wall, dismantle scaffolding, seal in the windows with caulking, and replace a single vertical strip around the corner on the West side of the wall.
Completion Report, May 30, 2012: We removed the old siding and replaced a few panels of rigid foam insulation before beginning.  We installed the trim and flashing.  We added an additional ledge to the flashing that goes over the J-channel as per the owners request. We installed the siding itself, as well as the soffit and fascia on the lower section.  It did not look like the soffit and fascia on the upper section needed to be switched out. Replacement of that soffit and fascia would require removing flashing that extends to the opposite side of the roof. We then caulked the areas where it appeared water may be able to enter, and replaced the missing piece that was around the corner on the East facing wall.  It took about 8 days to complete the job under mostly good conditions. Wrong material selection and rain slowed us down a bit in the beginning. We cleaned the site of everything we used before leaving. < End Report > CODE: 8310 Contact Us Call our 24 hour emergency roof repair at 1.780.424.7663.

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.

Evansburg Roof Inspection and Replacement, March 2012

The report follows a full roof replacement for our client using a two ply SBS Torch On system. The initial inspection determined that multiple application errors were causing the roof to fail and leak. Various issues with the roof are detailed in the report as well as information on the subsequent replacement. The following communications are from one of our Red Seal inspectors: Roof Report, January 7 2012: We are going to go back to Evansburg today. We have to stop by the shop to pick up a few things  (roll of torch-on, screws and plates, will bring my torches and propane). I did see some things that were done rather poorly, burn-outs, flashing, bad laps. I believe the fr board is installed in opposite direction of cap sheet. We are leaving at day break and expecting freezing rain tonight. The truck is ready and we will be there between 930-1000. I don't think I can get it done in one day, we may have to return on Monday. The client would like me to do a cut test to determine how and what material was installed, remove flashing around chimney to inspect and/or repair, replace 2 goose necks (may have to build up curbs). I have 3 b-vents and 2 stack flashings which will probably have to be installed, inspect laps and perimeter stripping. There is a lot of ice and water that will have to be removed, time consuming to say the least. We will deal with one repair at a time and document everything. 12  3 4 5 Roof Report, January 8 2012: As I thought, we spent the majority of the day clearing ice and water off the roof. Although we did find the source of many of the problems. The client's contractor was with us on the roof today. He is going to build four curbs to install, 2 are range hoods and 2 are bathroom fans. At the same time I can determine the roofing system (after I remove old curbs). I'm 100% sure that the cap sheet runs the opposite direction from the FR board (first ply). I will also have to re-place 3-4" high cones with collar (like a b-vent). I also believe there is no self- adhesive stripping to existing curbs. I see the perimeter of roof is not stripped properly - transitions should always be at a 90 degree, not a 45. Sorry to say, but as I see it, the leaks could be coming from almost anywhere: roof slopes to middle, no drains, scuppers are high and dry. I can likely stop most of the immediate problems but this roof will need more attention when it is warmer or a complete replacement. 1 2 3 Roof Report, January 9 2012:  We installed the two tall goose necks over the bathroom fans in question, tarred underneath the goose neck, mechanically fastened to deck, embedded granules six inches around base, primed flange, torched patch. Then, we replaced two curbs, embedded granules, installed fire tape, primed curb, installed 8" goose neck on top, fasten and prime, installed peel and stick base sheet, butter all laps. We also touched up two other goose neck curbs. It took all day because as we ripped out curbs we were finding wet fiber board and rotten wood. The client's contractor took care of carpentry. The winds were blowing hard and I was having a hard time keeping my torch lit. We will have to go back at least one more time (Thursday or Friday) as I ran out of time. My work is watertight. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 January 22, 2012: Below are the pictures of the repairs I finished today, all went well. A continuation of the same noted previous. 1 2 3 4 5   March 16, 2012 Roof Observation Conclusions:
  • Multiple application errors are causing roof to fail and leak.
  • FR board runs north and south. Cap sheet runs east and west. They should run same direction and be staggered.
  • Perimeter membrane is not stripped properly. Cap sheet is run straight up perimeter and cant edge. This section should be stripped in with another membrane.
  • Curbs do not have first ply of stripping membrane – to have 2 plys. Located wet FR board upon re-placing two curbs.
  • Multiple burn outs on cap sheet.
  • One side lap has only 1 3/4" seal (roll must of drifted off line and wasn't cut and fixed).
  • Some (8 – 10) end laps are not at 6" min. They vary at measurements less than the required 6”.
  • All over laps were not cut at a 45 degree angle to avoid a tee joint and create a proper seal.
  • Chimney flange is too big for curb and has created some heat loss (you can feel the heat escaping).
  • Roof needs two more scuppers to drain water properly.
  • There is no positive slope to existing two scuppers (they are high and dry).
  • All plumbing flanges were installed over cap sheet and patched (should of been installed over FR board and patched with flam flam or peel and stick, then capped over to create a two ply seal).
  • Perimeter does not appear to have enough mechanical fasteners, as per code, for wind uplift.
  The initial repairs are completed but the roof still needs to be replaced at this point. The following emails between our project manager (in italics) and the client illustrate a willingness to provide the best possible customer service:  
Good morning. Attached you will find the final report with conclusion summaries, daily reports, and photos. Any problem downloading let me know. As far as my apology is concerned. Being so late is completely my responsibility. I'm not trying to make excuses but the truth is, and I think it is right that you know, I wasn't just not getting to it to blow you off or something stupid. More than somebody just not following through I know what it's like to feel like they're just blowing you off. My humble excuses are that one of my workers really left me in a tight spot (even though I know that his situation is the most devastating anyone could imagine), but the reality is it took me this long to get caught up because I just couldn't double time fast enough. So I really am sorry. Anyway, I did get his position filled and I am getting caught up but the truth is I was running 16 - 20 hours a day and in future I need to have a better contingency plan for these things. Not excuses just the truth and I'm really, really sorry. Thanks for being so gracious with it. There is an additional 5% rebate that would be issued to you at completion (it's a friends and family discount - considering your grief and my tardiness). You will likely find the pricing to be more than the last outfit considering we would put on a whole system and not have the components that make up the roof (iso insulation, roof board, membrane, etc). Anything else I can do please let me know. I've pretty much caught up and I am actually getting on top of the wave for the first time in months 🙂 Appreciate it.
Okay I have done some research and the 2 ply sbs is what I think I want. Does this have a vapor barrier membrane? Do we have a slope insulation package for drainage and R value? Would the perimeters be built up and would this include new perimeter flashings? Also I would need photos of what is really there as the roofing is being removed -and photos of the decking - I know it will be difficult to determine if any rotting decking is related to leaking from years ago or just from October but I do want the photos. Looking forward to hearing from you The insurance company will probably be done their inspection on the 16th so that means I would want the roof started soon after that.
 
Hello, The 2 Ply SBS Torch On is the most time tested in Alberta, so it is obviously a solid choice. The Tough Roof and Engineered Liquid Rubber are also in our thinking wise choices. The single ply's (EPDM, TPO, PVC) in Alberta we have had some issue with. The specification for your roof would include (which will be specified on your Order Agreement); - A vapor barrier fully adhered to the deck - A sloped insulation package for drainage and R Value - Perimeters would have to be built up for the sloped ISO insulation - Flashing would be replaced as required to all parts of roof\ - Documentation daily of complete project including photos and daily Red Seal Journeyman Reports. Availability is great for mid to end of this month, after that it is getting tight, however, you're one of my best clients and I will make it work:) Anything else I can assist with let me know.
You mean one of your biggest pains! I will let you know when the inspector confirms his date and then we can get this done. Thanks.

Materials Required:
  • Armourguard (enough for 35sq).
  • FR board (enough for 35 sq).
  • 3 pails of asphault primer to prime deck for the vapour barrier to stick.
  • Peel and stick Armourguard for the stripping (20 rolls).
  • 2" iso board (enough to cover 35sq).
  • Fire tape (10 rolls).
  • Equipment needed.
  • Cap sheet (enough to cover the field and wall).
  • 236 feet of wall to base stripped and cap sheet stripped.
  • Cover strip rolls (13 rolls).

  Daily Report for June 3rd, 2012:
Upon arrival at the site, we immediately got to work preparing for capping:
  • The area was cleared by moving materials from the North side of the roof to the South side of the roof.
  • The area was swept so that the dirt could not interfere with the torching
  • Curbs were built, and peel and stick was applied around them. After lunch, we brought some more capsheets onto the roof. Pieces of materials were prepared:
  • Blueskin was cut in preparation for application to the outside of the walls.
  • Capsheet was cut to allow placing around the curbs. Blueskin was applied to the perimeter of both the North and East outside walls. Almost half of the entire roof is now capped; the worst part is over with regards to capping because of all the curbs in the way.

  Daily Report for June 4th, 2012:
  • Upon arrival at the site, capsheet was laid down on the Northern side of the building.
  • Blueskin was laid on the Eastern side and Northern sides of the building.
  • Most of the curbs were installed and completed on the finished section of the roof.
  • Our missing slope package arrived at 11:50am.
  • More walls were built and installed; all walls on the Eastern side of the building are now built and installed.
  • We checked that everything was organized and watertight, as we are leaving for Calgary and returning on Wednesday.
  Daily Report for June 6th, 2012: We went to the site 3 times today, as it rained several times throughout the day. The day was primarily spent getting rid of water on the roof. 1st visit (~6:00am): - The water was running down the entire Eastern side of the building, by the stairwell. The water appeared to be coming from 2 places: by the roof hatch, and above the stairs between the 2nd and 3rd floors. - Upon arriving at the site first thing in the morning, we immediately got to work clearing off the pool of water on the roof by the roof hatch. There was probably close to 2 inches of water pooled around the roof hatch.
  • We used the shop-vac to suck up the water.
  • We used shovels to scoop the water off the roof.
  • We used the push broom and squeegee to push the water off the roof.
- We patched up the area around the roof hatch with gum. By the time we left, there was no more dripping water on the inside of the building. 2nd visit (~3:30pm): - After a short period of rain, we returned to the site to inspect the site. - Water was pooled around the roof hatch again. - There were still leaks, but they were not as intense as when we got there in the morning. - After getting rid of the excess water and applying more gum around the roof hatch and walls, we left. 3rd visit (~6:00pm) - There was more water pooled around the roof hatch because there was another brief (but more intense) period of rain. - There was almost no dripping on the inside, only a little bit by the stairwell in between the 2nd and 3rd floor. - We spent a while getting rid of the water on the roof.

The roof is now 100% covered with sopa board.
- Peel and stick was applied to the rest of the inside of the walls. The inside walls are now 100% covered with peel and stick. - An 8 inch curb was built around the roof hatch and then covered with peel and stick. - When the rain started, we made sure everything was covered up and/or weighed down. - We walked around the inside of the building for a few minutes, checking for leaks.
  • The spots that were leaking before are now no longer leaking at all.
  • Upon thorough examination of the interior of the building, we found a leak.
  • Water was coming down the large roof vent and finding its way into apartment 8 on the 3rd floor, the maintenance room on the 2nd floor, and the utility room on the 1st floor.
  • We identified the large roof jack in the South East corner of the roof as the source of the leak.
  • The excess water around the roof jack was sucked up with the shop-vac and extra peel and stick was applied.
  • As of the time we left there were no leaks whatsoever-We went back to the site later at night at around 8pm and there were no problems whatsoever; all the leaking has stopped.

  Daily Report for June 10th, 2012: When we arrived on site today, we got to work inspecting the building:
  • There were no new leaks, and the leaking in apartment 8 has slowed down considerably.
  • We spent the morning cleaning up the roof.
  • We swept off any excess water, in preparation for capping later.
  • We brought down extra unused materials (ie, plywood and 2x4s) from the roof, ready to be taken back for refund.
We started to lay capsheet:
  • We managed to lay down 2 ½ rows of capsheet, but could not continue after this due to the rain.
  • We tried to dry the area and try again once the rain stopped, but it would not stop raining for long enough for us to continue.
We gummed up the corners of the walls as a precautionary measure before leaving. We returned to the site later in the night (around 10:30pm) to monitor:
  • There were no new leaks in apartment 8.
  • We emptied the water buckets and mopped up the floors of the apartment.
  • We swept some more water off of the roof.

  • We swept the water off of the uncapped area of the roof (Southern side of the roof).
  • I went to the gas station and refilled the propane tanks.
  • Another crew member arrived on site and helped to set the capsheets and cut the pieces. This continued for the majority of the day-The curbs were capped with the remaining pieces of capsheet. We will be getting 5 more rolls of capsheet tomorrow so that we can do the walls tomorrow-The drips in apartment 8 have slowed down considerably since the capsheet was laid down on the rest of the roof:
    • The drips on the bedroom have stopped completely.
    • The drips in the living room have slowed down to almost nothing.
    • The drip in the bathroom has stopped completely.
  • All the curbs and the roof hatch were stripped before we left.
  • We returned later in the night to check up on the apartment after it rained lightly, and there was no more damage.
Roof Report, September 13 2012:
  • Installed one new air vent.
  • Capped off two plumbing vents.
  • Job is 100% completed.
Today we got to the job site and were told that the client had the vents but she did not have any to be installed. We tried to find it at Rona close to the client’s address but it was a smaller store and there were no sizes available. That was the reason we had to head back to Edmonton to Roof Mart to get a new vent but they also did not have any. Instead we tried Sinclair Supply, we got there and picked up the vent we needed and headed back to job site in Evansburg to get the job done. photo (76) photo (77) photo (78) photo (79) photo (80) photo (81) photo (82) photo (83) photo (84) photo (85)

Edmonton Roof Deck Replacement and Waterproofing, October 2011

This residential client was provided with a quotation for the replacement and re-installation of a proper decking and waterproofing system. There is water leaking into the home and proper draining systems need to be installed. This report also includes a follow-up service call. Inspection, October 8, 2011:
The client is looking to have both decks re-surfaced and proper drain systems installed. There is moisture getting into the home in the daughters room. There is also dimpling visible on the ceiling and screws were dropping down, those have since been plastered over. Both decks are pooling water and are improperly sealed. The client believes there is stucco below the deck and has questions about damage to it or the foundation during the process. The client is also looking to have new eaves-troughs installed.

Roof Report, November 27, 2011:
I am unable to give as much slope to the decks as the customer would like as the threshold under his doors is only 1" after I rip the old roof off. I plan on using sloped fiberboard around the wall lines as this will only build it up by .5" and give some sort of slope at the walls. As the threshold is only 1" under the door I don't want to use FR board because this will build the roof up too much. Instead, I plan on using the fast and stick 180 base-sheet as this is mechanically fastened and can be used directly on the plywood deck. Along the wall lines the stucco starts 1" above roof line. In order to be able to ensure a good seal I want to put plywood strips along the wall line at the height of 4" to give me plenty to seal to on the walls. To make this look better for the client I would like to use a black metal flashing over my wall line cap-flashing (to make it look more like crown molding, and it will match the metal cap at the top of the wall). The door provides me with a bigger problem. I would like to run my cap flashing up onto the door sil as this will give me more to seal to instead of trying to work under it as it is only 1". As I know using the torch on his door sil presents a real fire hazard, I would like to use a peel and stick 250 cap with the IKO S.A.M adhesive and a detail roller.

Roof Report, November 30, 2011:
We ripped off the larger of the two roofs at the back side of the house. Once the old membrane was ripped off we inspected the plywood deck, the plywood was wet but not rotted out in any spots. After the plywood was inspected we put our plywood strips around the perimeter of the building to allow me the height I need to seal my ply's. Once the plywood was installed we cut fiber board on a 45 degree angle and screwed it along the perimeter to create as much slope as the threshold under the door would allow. Once the fiber board was screwed down we laid out our rolls of fast and stick 180. Then we screwed it down for our first ply of the system and torched the laps to make it all water tight. This morning we lost a couple of hours removing snow and chipping ice. After we got all the snow and ice removed from the roof we primed half of the perimeter. I put on the armourbond flash up the walls and sealed it to the top of the plywood to ensure a strong seal. After I finished the flashing I was able to put down half of the 250 cap sheet on the flats of the roof. Once that was done i degranulated the perimeter and moved all of the customers belongings on the deck to the completed side so I can get a good jump start in the morning.

Roof Report, December 4, 2011:
I went to work on the front deck of the house, we ripped off the old membrane and inspected the plywood deck for rotten areas but none were found. As with the back deck the plywood was found to be wet but not damaged in any areas. After we dried the plywood as best as possible, we built the plywood walls around the perimeter to allow me to seal my ply's. Once the wall lines were installed, we used strips of fiber board cut at a 45 degree angle to create as much slope as the threshold around the door would allow. Then we screwed it down. After the fiber board was laid out I was able to lay all of the 180 fast and stick base sheet over all the flats, screwed it all down, and torched all of the laps. Next the plywood wall lines were all primed so I could put my 180 capping on the walls. I was able to cap half of the wall with 180 peel and stick capping, starting from the drain and working out. To make things easier for our next day I torched down my first run of the 250 cap sheet on the flats.

Roof Report, December 12, 2011: This morning we returned to the client's house to continue work on his roof decks. After we finished drying the roof I completed all of the peel and stick capping around the perimeter including under the doorway. Once the 180 capping was complete I finished the flats with the 250 cap sheet, and finished degranulating the perimeter of the 250 cap sheet. I was also able to complete about 40% of the 250 capping along the wall lines. All I have left on this roof is to finish the 250 capping around the wall and put all of the customers furniture back where it was when we showed up. I plan on drying the smaller roof in the morning and then ripping it off first thing.

Follow-up Service Call, March 14, 2012:
Arrived at the site and the client showed us the water damage in both of her children's rooms, however there was no water damage in the bathroom between the two rooms.  After inspection of the SBS roof, there were a few blisters starting. These blisters were not attached to any exterior wall or opening in seams, so we suspected that it was moisture underneath the membrane and not a leak from roofing system causing the blister. We discussed with the client that because of the ice on the roof it would be best not to continue the blister repair at this point. Client mentioned that her husband was shoveling the snow off the deck as a preventative measure, which may or may not indicate any attempt to clear the drain. We did suggest that we could conduct a flood test to give the client peace of mind. This would test whether any rain in the meantime would leak from our drain installation. The customer agreed and gave permission for the flood test and remained just inside the home with an open door between us and her. We conducted the flood test and initially there was no moisture coming through where previous leaks occurred.  However, after 30 minutes of flooding the roof on deck, the clients nanny told us that there was a water leak in the kitchen, the floor beneath the original leak locations. At this time we turned off the water. As we came downstairs to inspect the new leak, we suspected that the leaks were not caused from a leak in the membrane on the deck, nor was the problem just a leak around the drain area.  The leak in the kitchen was substantial and furthermore there was water running down over the back entrance on the exterior wall.  After noticing this we went back to the original leak areas (ie. the children's bedrooms) above the kitchen, at which time we noticed that the floor was getting wet in the bedroom directly above the kitchen. We noticed the sound of dripping water while standing in the bathroom between the two bedrooms, client was present when mentioning the sounds coming from inside the walls. It is our conclusion that for this amount of water to penetrate such a large area of the house in such a short time frame the water must be coming from the drain pipe. It is attached to the drain bowl which is enclosed in the wall and exits the exterior wall between the first and second floor (ie. between the kitchen and bedroom directly above). At this point we told the customer that this was not a roofing problem, and that she had a drain problem which would require a plumber. We further advised her that this is not warranty work, any problems to roof assembly that have occurred because of the drain problem would be addressed after the plumbing problem is fixed and would then be chargeable work as our warranty is void if there is an already existing issue outside of the scope of our work.  She is also aware to e-mail GRS with the progress and completion of such work.

Roof Report, March 15, 2012:
Arrived at clients home and inspected both drains. First drain inspected while the client poured water down the drain. Fairly steady drip came from seal from the inside of the bowl. The second drain was inspected from open ceiling and the leak was not the bowl itself but the insert attached to the bowl had a horizontal split which was the cause of a substantial leak. We are not certain as to who installed what in this plumbing section. Inserts do need to be changed out. To temporarily fix the leaking we caulked the split on one drain and caulked the ridge of the compression ring on both drains.  We explained to the clients that it is a temporary fix until further action is taken on the part of GRS or a plumber. The split could be a manufacturer default or a crack which was then split from freezing water, or it could be due to someone trying to clear the drain with an object. These are just possible reasons for an uncertain situation and speculation based on the fact that the crack was horizontal. We explained that once the deck is dry and a course of action is decided upon, the drains will be repaired and the blisters would be fixed at the same time.

Service Follow-up, April 1, 2012: The following email was sent by the client to our project manager:
I have water flowing into my great-room, over the deck (currently out of 2 spots at a great rate of flow). There are wet spots all along the path likely leading to the drain area in the front.  The back deck remains ok, with no drainage, but covered up with the tarp still.  The areas fixed on Thursday look intact, but the edges of the repairs are mixed with water and the "fix it material". I have photos and video.  This is similar to what happened in Dec after the original remediation on the decks which supposedly stopped the issue. He told me at the time it was likely an interface with the drain issue that he was able to stop with some caulking. Any thoughts or suggestions on stopping this flow and ongoing issue?
Following this email a crew member was sent out to inspect the leaks, the inspection notes are below:
Client indicated the leak is a very small amount of water that only leaks during a heavy rain fall. The amount is about two to three table spoons of water. The leak comes off of a truss. The client has caulked the metal around the balcony on the bottom which has solved prior leaks.
We flood tested on top of the metal where it was caulked and we attempted to flush water up behind the metal.  The truss started to get moist.  We re-caulked the fastener heads and the old caulking. There may have been pin holes in the caulking. If this doesn't stop the leak then the metal flashing may have to be removed to diagnose the leak further. The roof is wet due to rain and there is rain in the forecast for this afternoon. The client is happy with the trouble shooting and is willing to wait and see if the leak has stopped. There are three buckles that will need to be addressed in the near future.  This can be done with ms detail and grey granules, weather permitting.

Edmonton Residential Flat Roof Inspection and Replacement, June 2011

This project started with an inspection of the client's residential roof as the owner wanted options for replacement. Our project manager provided a comprehensive quotation outlining various options for replacement and recovery. The client wanted options for both the house and the garage. Upon first inspection it was determined that the leakage in the garage was occurring at the flashings, which all need to be replaced. Our crew was informed that a tree had fallen on the rear portion of the garage which is evident from the damage there. The roof itself is not in good shape and has many soft spots, one area even has a foot long bubble on it. There is also a tear about 8 inches long. The inspection of the roof on the house was not quite as bad as the garage; however, there was one soft spot located around the drain. It is possible that the insulation underneath is beginning to saturate with water. Normal blistering on the roof is evident of the roof coming to the end of its life. The flashing is also an issue with one hole caused by the adjacent tree. The client is open to all available options.
SG1S3311
We began work on this site with a comprehensive inspection, covering both the house and the garage.
SG1S3312
The client had a double-detached garage with a flat roof.
SG1S3313
Similarly, the house was a detached trailer with a patio, both having flat roofs.
SG1S3316
We began the garage inspection by doing a walk-around of the perimeter, noting any deficiencies in the flashing. It was determined that the leaks were entering around here, and that all of the flashing needed to be replaced.
SG1S3319
Next, we noted the extent of the damage on the garage roof and determined whether they warranted a replacement or recovery. Part of our quotation included whether components such as this gas appliance required replacement, as well.
SG1S3320
Rusting, cracked sealant, and exposed seams in the flashing were pinpointed as the main leak entry points into the garage.
SG1S3321
There had been signs of previous spot repairs, which had failed to prevent leaks.
SG1S3322
Significant crumpling and rust in the edge flashing, with unfastened components visible.
SG1S3326
Some spot repairs had been performed at the drain leading to the downspouts, as well. Again, the sealant was failing, and water did not drain properly.
SG1S3328
Furthermore, we found significant tearing in the roof membrane itself.
SG1S3330
Some of the tears had been sealed in using liquid rubber in the past, as well. No leaks were found inside the building that corresponded with this section of the roof.
SG1S3331
Next, we moved onto the house inspection. We checked the soffit, fascia, and all perimeter flashing for deficiencies and potential leak entry points.
SG1S3333
There was normal blistering throughout the roof, indicating that it was close to the end of its life cycle.
SG1S3334
We postulated that the insulation underneath the roof was beginning to saturate with water, thus the red marks.
SG1S3336
As with the garage, parts of the fascia were unfastened.
SG1S3337
Exposed pockets such as this along the flashing also provided leak entry points.
SG1S3338
Missing or exposed screws and failing spot repairs were found along the perimeter.
SG1S3340
The base of this chimney was not flush with the roof. This provided another potential leak entry point.
SG1S3342
The chimney stack showed no signs of major damage, although the rest of the base had significant deficiencies as noted above.
SG1S3343
More exposed pockets along the chimney.
SG1S3344
The patio had a low-slope metal roof. At first glance, it did not require replacement. The client did not report any leaking coming into the patio.
SG1S3345
Finally, we did a check around the various rooftop appliances and fixtures. The skylight's penetrations were not properly sealed, as with most of the other appliances.
The following is an email sent by our project manager to the client providing a quotation for various roofing options:
Good morning, Please find attached the pricing you requested. Both your home and garage is priced. The documentation and internet links in the attached report detail our; Workmanship Guarantee, System Options and Methods, Credentials, 2011 Schedule Availability, Links to Manufacturers, GRS Project Portfolio and Clients, etc. There are two different methods to do your roof, one is to rip the old roof off (a complete replacement) and the other is a new Roof Recovery System. A Roof Recovery has our crew scraping the gravel off, taking the old membrane and soaked insulation off (as required only) and then mechanically attaching a fibre board and then putting a new roof over top (SBS Torch On, Tar and Gravel Mop On, EPDM, TPO, or PVC per quote). Typically a roof recovery is what is done. A roof recovery is less intrusive, it is more environmentally friendly as the old bitumen layers don't end up in the land fill, the old system also has an inherent R Value of usually around 7, it is less costly, and the life-cycle is the same as a complete replacement. However, if you find that you want or are required to completely remove the old system down to the substrate (the sheathing or metal Q deck), we can accommodate this and the pricing is included in the attached documentation also. Additionally, there are a number of different membranes available, which I've detailed in the quote. Essentially, it comes down to 1) A traditional 4ply mop on tar and gravel (BUR), 2) 2ply SBS Mod Bit (torch down or cold apply), or 3) Single ply; black rubber membrane (EPDM) or a white membrane (TPO or PVC) depending on whether you want to draw the sun in or not. EPDM, TPO, PVC are available in multiple colors, however EPDM out of the box is typically black and TPO / PVC are typically white. Single ply systems are what are being installed more and more now (for GRS singly ply is about 80%), however, we install all system types. I would encourage you to consider the life-cycle costing and maintenance / repair benefits of a single ply system prior to choosing a system. Have a read and let us know what you think - I know there is a lot of information so I'm sure you will have questions. Thanks for the opportunity to quote - it is appreciated!

Edmonton Residential Flat Roof Inspection, May 2011

The original inquiry started with the client needing suggestions on what to do for a patio cover. However an inspection of the site led to the discovery of additional concerns, the main one being ice damming on the rooftop. It became apparent that the roof was in very poor condition and should ideally be replaced. Once on-site the crew noticed an unusually large amount of ice damming which prompted them to go onto the roof and take a closer look. The client also came up on the roof and was shocked by its condition. Ice damming had taken away almost all of the gravel in the areas affected and the underlying tar was cracked as well. Other areas of the roof show significant wear. Upon querying the client, the crew discovered the age of the roof to be approximately 30 years old. The client also indicated that she might be interested in replacing the siding and eavestroughing as well.
1
Ice damming had caused significant amounts of gravel to expose parts of the roof. There were tears in the tar surface around the edges of the roof, as well as around some rooftop appliances. We also inspected the flashing around the base of the chimneys and noted signs of significant wear.
4
The flashing around the chimney was rusting, and did not extend all the way down to the roof surface. Much of the gravel around its base was also missing. We found tears along the chimney-roof connection. The perimeter flashing was in much worse shape, with sections completely bent away from the roof. Finally, we inspected the drains and plumbing boots. Some of the surface tar had small holes around the drains.
3
After completing the inspection, we took measurements of all flashing components as part of the quotation we would later provide to the client for a roof replacement.
2
Finally, we inspected all penetrations, downspouts, and gutters. We noted pockets formed between the roof surface and the edge flashing. As the ice dams had melted, water was entering the building envelope through them. Furthermore, one section of the roof used a metal sheet, which was past its life cycle; significant rusting and holes were found throughout the metal. In general, most of the roof had also been exposed over a long period due to the missing gravel not being replaced.
The following email was sent to the client by our project manager so that she could better understand the replacement and recovery options:
With respect to the house roof replacement please find attached the pricing you requested. The documentation / links detail our Workmanship Guarantee, System Options and Methods, 2011 Schedule Availability, Links to Manufacturers, our Project Portfolio and References. There are two different methods to do your roof, one is to rip the old roof off (a complete replacement) and the other is a new Roof Recovery System. The Roof Recovery has our crew scraping the gravel off, taking the old membrane and soaked insulation off (only as required) and then attaching a fibre board and then putting a new roof over top (SBS, Mop On, EPDM, TPO, or PVC per quote). Typically a roof recovery is what is done. A roof recovery is less intrusive to our client, it is more environmentally friendly as the old bitumen layers don't end up in the land fill, the old system also has an inherent R Value of usually around 7, it is less costly, and the life-cycle is the same as a complete replacement. However, if you find that you want to completely remove the old system down to the sheathing we can accommodate and the pricing is included also. Additionally, there are a number of different membranes available in today's market, which I've detailed in the quote. Essentially, it usually comes down to 1) a traditional 4ply mop on (BUR), 2) a 2ply SBS torch down, or 3) a single ply; black rubber membrane (EPDM) or a white membrane (TPO or PVC) depending on whether you want to draw the sun in or not. Single ply systems are typically what we install more and more - we install all system types, but I would encourage you to consider the life-cycle costing and maintenance / repair benefits of a single ply system prior to ordering. Have a read and let us know what you think - I'm sure you will have questions. Thanks for the opportunity to quote - it is appreciated.
