Article: EPDM Commercial Flat Roof Repair in Edmonton, Alberta. Roof Vent Exhaust Installation.Flat Roof Repair Edmonton - EPDM - Roof Vent (Jack) Installation. The short site report below is the flashing in of a roof vent retro-fit (or roof jack as some refer to them as) to an EPDM commercial roof. Our client is an HVAC contractor that regularly calls on us to roof in retro-fits for flat roofs that have new air conditioners or some form of units installed. In many instances it is best practice to have any protrusion in a low slope roof to have a curb, in this instance a curb was not specified. Curbs are critical for roof skylights, sun tubes, and roof hatches. With other penetrations such as gum boxes, pipes and miscellaneous others it isn't as critical. For install detail instructions for various roof penetrations, curbs, etc visit the following link at Carlisle: https://www.carlislesyntec.com/search.aspx?mediatype=document&doctype=3&sort=doctype&category=96&categories=89,90,91,92,93,94,95 October 17, 2014: Crew Arrives To Complete Repairs. Flashing in of Rooftop Exhaust. Site Location: 9503 12 Avenue SW Edmonton, Alberta.
This roof is a EPDM roof. They had two roof penetrations that needed to be roofed in properly. The roof was really dirty and covered in mud which took some time to clean. They used silicone to put a temporary seal around the units which we had to remove before flashing them in properly. Once we got them all clean we roofed the units in with form flash. The job is 100% complete. This was an hourly dispatch call-out plus material.Materials used: 24 ft of 12 inch form flash. 1 can of primer. 1 bag of rags. 1 - 1 gallon can of EPDM splice wash. 2 tubes of EPDM lap seal. < End of Report> Contact Us Call our 24 hour emergency roof repair at 1.780.424.7663.

ARTICLE: Tar and Gravel Roof Repair Edmonton, Alberta. Flat Roof. Multi-Family Condo. Repairs to Scuppers, Edge Flashing Leaks and Entrance Canopy.
Many of our customers are of course regular repeat customers that have over time come to trust the expertise of our journeymen roofers. This particular customer is no different. The manager for this property owner originally called us three or so years ago and since then we have likely worked on most or near all of their properties in the Edmonton area.
The reports below are for the original inspection of the roof and the repair work that the crews did on the condominium property. A front entry canopy required re-construction, there were scupper repairs, and some leaks around perimeter flashing on the built-up tar and gravel roof.
April 19, 2015: Customer Contacts Project Manager at GRS for Tar and Gravel Roof Repair Assessment and Pricing.
Our customer called today for Edmonton roof repair service to one of their condo holdings in the Edmonton area. I have dispatched a journeyman to inspect the roof in accordance to our customer's requests.
April 20, 2015: Journeyman Roofer Attends to Roof for Inspection.
Site Address: 10315 113 Street Edmonton, Alberta. Type of Work Site: Multi Family Condominium.
Roof Type: BUR (tar and gravel).
Our customer would like a quotation to seal in 5 scuppers using a gum patch method and not torch-on with open-flame. He would also like us to remove all the perimeter metal and fix any spots that are splitting along the membrane with gum patches. When we put the metal back on he would like us to put silicone on the laps of the metal. There may also be entry roof canopy reconstruction involved.
Man hours to complete: Approximately 50 hours.
Material needed: 5 - 3 gallon cans of gum. 1 roll of 6 inch mesh. 4 tubes of silicone.
List of front entry canopy materials to be determined.
April 29, 2015: Roof Repair Crew Attends for First Day.
The following site is a condo building in Edmonton Alberta. We were sent here to complete three scopes of work. 1) Flat roof spot repairs around perimeter (remove flashing, repair, return flashing to roof). 2) Fix cracks on edge of scuppers to avoid future leaking scuppers. 3) Fix a canopy roof that was sagging on the front left side.Scope # 1: Perimeter spot repairs on main tar and gravel flat roof.We started the day with the toolbox meeting. Got set up on roof. The roofers started stripping metal flashing around the perimeter while I went and got supplies. We did two different scopes of work on the roof.1st scope was patching around the perimeter of the cant flashing which consists of spraying down asphalt primer on area where patch is needed. Then putting one layer of mastic on top of the asphalt primer. We then put the green mesh on the layer of mastic. The next step in the process is to add one more layer of mastic on top of the green mesh and let it dry. Final is to re-install the roof flashing.
The second scope of work we completed was to fix the scuppers as they had cracks around the edge of them and they were leaking. To do this we screwed each side of the scupper tight against the cant metal. We then put on one layer of mastic on the cracks. We then added the green mesh to the first layer of mastic. Followed by one more layer of mastic on top of the green mesh. This is an alternate method to using open-flame torching.
WORK LEFT TO DO:
- fix canopy (10 hours of work)
-green mesh 10 feet
-Half a pale of mastic
MATERIALS NEEDED AS FOLLOWS: - 4, 2×6×12 -2, 4'×8' sheets of 1/2" plywood - 20' of can't -13' of riglet flashing -3 sheets of FR board -1 roll of cap -20' of cant flashing -1 scupper -1 10' 2"×4" -Screws and nails 1 box each -20' of 2 x 8
Canopy re-construction part of the scope for this location to be included as a separate blog article report.

Below you will find a series of reports and photographs from the Edmonton roofing repair crew for an EPDM installation on a residential flat roof. Drain and flashing installation was also added to the roof replacement package. The client initially had a tar and gravel system. Site Preparation, June 23 2013: Gravel removal was finished in preparation of tomorrow's EPDM installation. June 30 2013: The EPDM re-roofing has begun. The client also made us aware that they had paid for another drain installation. We will return next week to do a metal and drain replacement. July 1 2013: The skylight, flashing, and drain need replacement or reinstallation. The client approved our use of the front lawn for doing our work on that side of the house. July 2 2013: The EPDM re-roof is now complete. Remaining tasks include drain installation on the rear roof, skirt flashing (skylight, chimney), and installing perimeter metal.

Below you will find a scope of work, materials list, and field report by our Edmonton roofing repair crew for a soffict and fascia repair at a commercial client's building. Scope of Work
- Roofing (flat, metal, slope).
- Roof inspection.
- Exteriors (siding, soffit, fasia).
- Sheet metal (flashing).
- Metal fascia with lettering, per client specification.
- Circular saw.
- Metal for cap flashing.
Below you will find the report for an EPDM re-roofing effort GRS undertook for one of our Edmonton clients. Their existing tar and gravel roof is in need of some work, so we quoted cost for repair, replacement, and recovering services before the client elected to recover the existing roof with EPDM. Our office thought it would be best to establish the scope of the work and inform the customer of what we intended to do at their location. Below is a summary of the correspondence from our team that outlines the project details. Project Scope, July 3, 2012: We will first order the engineered insulation package for the project, and the arrival of this will (in large) determine the effective start date. The best estimate for now is that we can begin late next week (July 11-13), but we promised to keep the client in-the-know if any updates were to come about. The client's on-site contact will be instructed to put a "walk in" bin on street (to allow for us to wheel in wheelbarrows of gravel from the street level); if there are any issues with that he'll let you or I know. We promised to put down sheathing that would safely allow wheelbarrows to be repeatedly rolled across the grass without damaging the property. Another member of the project team will contact the client with respect to colour swatch and choice for metal. They will be advised to keeping the face as low profile as possible, considering the raised elevation view due to sloped insulation raising the parapet. The roofers will be advised that we will be doing an EPDM recovery (removal of gravel first leaving the existing assembly), taking core samples to ensure insulation is dry, and that we are building up parapets to allow for sloped insulation. Finally, the job will require the removal of the flashing around the chimney and possibly require a re-flash (to be evaluated at the appropriate time). Materials:
- (2) Spud bars.
- Cordless drill, charger, & extra battery.
- (2) Push brooms.
- (4) High Build 200.
- (3) Jute mesh.
- (2) Plastic cement.
- (6) 6" rolls scrim.
- (4) 4' rolls scrim.
- Bag of calcium.
- 5 Gallons of Varsol/Mineral spirits.
- (2) Rolls duct tape.
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. 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. 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. January 22, 2012: Below are the pictures of the repairs I finished today, all went well. A continuation of the same noted previous. March 16, 2012 Roof Observation Conclusions:
Daily Report for June 3rd, 2012:Daily Report for June 4th, 2012:Roof Report, September 13 2012:
- 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.
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.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.
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.
- 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).
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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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 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.
- 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.
- Installed one new air vent.
- Capped off two plumbing vents.
- Job is 100% completed.

This article covers a commercial leak repair in Drayton Valley and also includes a follow-up service call. Photos relating to both service calls are supplied. Roof Report, June 7, 2011: First I met with the manager on-site and examined the leak areas from the inside. Then I went onto the roof and began examining the suspect areas around RTU (rooftop unit) #4 and RTU #6. I found loose curb stripping under the flashing but was unable to repair at that time due to heavy rainfall. I advised the manager that I would return the next day. Roof Report, June 8, 2011: I informed the staff on-site that I would be working on roof. Then I went onto the roof and removed and replaced the flashing. Lastly I repaired the stripping with ModBit compatible mastic (2 tubes). Follow-up, June 12, 2012: The following email was sent by the client's maintenance manager prompting a follow-up service call:
In speaking with the store, water seems to be entering the store when it rains. From the description the manager noted, it seems the curb flashing on one of the roof top units may require attention as the water is running along side the supply air duct work that protrudes through the roof. Our HVAC vendor was on-site in May to complete an inspection and had not noted there to be any obvious concerns at that time. However, they are not due back until mid-July or so. The area is to the right hand side of the check out area. One ceiling tile is obviously wet. It would be appreciated if you may confirm to have your roofing vendor out within the next day or so while the weather is favourable to make such a repair. Once complete, please do ensure to have any interior water damages as results (ie, water stained or missing ceiling tiles) addressed. Please do advise as to your roofer's anticipated arrival. For the time being the store has been putting a bucket in the area to catch the water whenever it rains. Regards,Roof Report, June 13, 2012: We arrived on-site and inspected the damage from the inside. After gaining access to the roof, we identified the problem area as being an HVAC unit near the southwest corner. To determine exactly where the leak was coming from, we performed a leak test. We brought buckets of water up onto the roof and splashed it all around the HVAC unit. A total of 8 buckets of water were used in this test, but we did not manage to find the problem. It was determined that in order to accurately find the leak we would have to wait for the rain to come. The downspouts appear to be crushed near the bottom, and the northern most down spout seems to be half missing. The pooling of water by the downspouts has to do with the location; the parking lot asphalt where the spouts are is sloped in a way that the water pools by the eastern wall of the building. < End Report > CODE: 5009 Contact Us 24 Hour Emergency Roof Repair.

The report below covers an inspection and repair to a client's residential building. Their failing low-slope roof required some re-flashing, but upon first inspection it was clear that there would be more work to carry out beyond this simple job. Inquiry Received: May, 2011 The client reached out to us to provide a quote for re-roofing their low-slope residence. We sent out a technician to inspect the roofing system, and they provided the following notes. Inspection: May 7, 2011 After inspecting the roofing system and taking photos of the area, the technician carrying out the inspection send in some note about the potential project, and discussed options for replacement.
- The roof (overall) is in poor condition.
- Apart from the usual blistering and gravel wear, there are two locations where cracks have appeared.
- The cracks themselves are very deep, so much so that one could touch the joists below with a finger.
- There was what appeared to be a small hole found in one of the cracks, but when it was traced out it was found to be about a foot long. Another hole was found to similar result. Unfortunately, there's no way to tell how many such deficiencies exist.
- A number of on-roof drains are clogged and unusable. Will need attending to.
