Nisku Temporary Industrial Roof Repairs, July 2014

This client in Nisku, Alberta was experiencing leaking above the second floor of their office. A quotation was provided to the client with options for full roof replacement or temporary spot repairs. This report outlines the repair process. Inspection, July 29, 2014: The client is experiencing leaks from units on the roof as well as from three big hood vents coming through the wall. The caulking has deteriorated and would need be removed and resealed. They should then be meshed in on the sides. There are 6 units and 10 penetrations on the roof and the client would like them sealed with mesh and liquid rubber. This job would require approximately 40-50 man hours to complete. 20140729_093730 20140729_093732 20140729_093742 20140729_093743 20140729_093807 20140725_142835 20140725_142846 20140725_142905 Roof Report, August 6, 2014: Today we had to remove the old caulking from the hood vents as well as from areas around the units. After this we cleaned them thoroughly, applied seam tape, and then applied two coats of liquid rubber. With regards to the hood vents, we removed all old silicone and applied new caulking, then sealed in the sides with seam tape and liquid rubber. I also sealed in the caulking with liquid rubber for extra protection. The vents and penetrations are now sealed and this site is complete.
Material Used:
  • 1.5 pails of brush grade LR.
  • 3 rolls of seam tape.
  • 5 tubes of caulking.

Leduc Industrial Metal Roof Maintenance, June 2014

This industrial client in Leduc, Alberta was provided with a quotation for various roofing options. Included were options for full metal roof replacement, roof recovery, and liquid rubber maintenance. This report follows the liquid rubber maintenance that was carried out to prevent further leaking. Inspection, June 10, 2014: There is leaking where the old building meets the new building on this site. There is a gutter which separates the 2 roofs and the leak is in the gutter. Ply’s in the gutter have deteriorated and the screws have popped through the ply’s. The original building has a sloped cladding roof which had the gutter originally, then they built the new building which is higher than the old building. The gutter between joins the two buildings.
Materials Required:
  • 2 pails of liquid rubber.
  • 1 pail of trowel grade liquid rubber.

By the end of the day we had most of the units done and the ridge cap complete. I would say the job is about 60% finished. Tomorrow we will finish the gutters and fasteners. 20140618_084552_resized 20140618_090443_resized 20140618_101039_resized 20140618_101051_resized 20140618_101233_resized 20140618_120719_resized 20140618_120726_resized 20140618_140909_resized 20140618_142519_resized 20140618_142529_resized20140618_152045_resized20140618_152106_resized20140618_152120_resized20140618_152138_resized20140618_170236_resized20140618_170244_resized20140618_170250_resized20140618_170304_resized20140618_170327_resized20140618_170327_resized_120140618_170346_resized20140618_170357_resized Roof Report, June 20, 2014: Today we finished all of the units and the detailing. After that I had a new hire start the fasteners while the rest of us worked on the gutters. This was a big job as we had to coat and line the whole thing with LR and cloth, then apply a second coat of LR afterwards.
We helped finish the fasteners and the roof was complete. I had the customer come up to the roof and do a walk through and he was happy with the work. This site is 100% done.
Material Used:
  • 5 pails of LR brush grade.
  • 1 pail of trowel grade.
  • 2 rolls of 6 inch x 100 ft. mesh.
  • 6 paint brushes.

Edmonton Industrial Downspout Installation, August 2012

This client required downspout installation, liquid rubber application, and cap flashing maintenance. These repairs were necessary to ensure a water tight rooftop. This project will form a two part article as an additional liquid rubber roof recovery was done for this client. Project Coordinator's Notes, August 16, 2012:
The scope of work is: Supply and install 2 downspouts outside of building. Replace all residential downspouts to industrial (all powder blue). Remove EPDM liner at gutter, vertical up wall 12", and vertical to roof connection on top of roof 12". Build up liquid rubber to slope to each drain. Cap flashing maintenance. Liquid rubber application to seam in the middle of roof (2' x 186'). Liquid rubber application to seam by and up vertical wall (4' x 186'). Liquid rubber to be applied on all penetration. Anything outside of the scope listed above will be considered a change order and additional charges will apply over and above the dollar amount stated in this contract. For this job you will require 4 drums of metalsafe. We may need to bring additional drums of metalsafe from Calgary if there are not enough for use on this job in Edmonton.
Additional Notes, August 23, 2012:
This client wants all of the residential downspout replaced with industrial downspout. A total of three downspouts from the upper roof to the lower, and a total of five from the lower roof eavestrough connected to the existing drains and extending through the industrial soffit to the ground. The upper downspouts are fairly straight forward. The lower ones are a little more complex and will require removal of the soffit/siding in the locations of the downspouts/drains (extending the industrial size downspouts through the soffit, then replacing the soffit). The bottom section of downpipes will have to be fastened into stone so a hammer drill will be required to fasten pipe straps. Colour of all the downspouts is to be Slate Blue. You will need a 32' ladder for access. I have compiled a material list needed below, as well I have attached pictures of the project. As before please keep me informed of the estimated start date, and the date you complete the project.
Material Estimation:
  • 13 elbows.
  • 154' industrial size downpipe.
  • 16 pipe straps.
  • 8 outlets.

Roof Report, November 6, 2012:
  • Put high build around air conditioning unit.
  • Swapped water from the gutter.
  • Inspected leak areas.
There was a lot of water in the gutter so we did not roll any high build on it. It has to be completely dry for us to put the high build on. photo (6)photo (7)photo (8)photo (9)photo (10)photo (11)photo (12)photo (13)work 129 The second part of this project is continued on another article.

Edmonton Roof Repair and Maintenance Service, April 2012

This report summarizes an annual maintenance and repair service done to ensure a water-tight state on a complete roof system. A subsequent return was required in order to touch-up potential problem areas. The crew arrived on site and began prepping the standing water areas. Next they rolled on high build 200 (14' x 26' 364 square ft.). A crew member called the project manager to begin fire watch as a propane torch was required to make repairs. Rubberized membrane was rolled onto the affected areas which were causing water leaks. 20150908_16521520150908_165219 20150908_165224 20150908_165232 20150908_165249repairs and rubberized membraine 030repairs and rubberized membraine 039 repairs and rubberized membraine 040 repairs and rubberized membraine 041repairs and rubberized membraine 027 repairs and rubberized membraine 016 repairs and rubberized membraine 034 The initial repairs had been done but there was still some leaking occurring.
