Industrial Roof Liquid Rubber Repair, October 2015, Stony Plain

This client's industrial building required some repairs to the ridge line capping. They contracted a team of GRS technicians to go on-site and carry out the repair with liquid rubber.   Roof Report: October 7, 2015 The team went out to the client's location for just the afternoon and wrapped up the metal and seam work that had been left from a previous day (report currently unavailable). They also applied the engineered liquid rubber solution over half of the roof's ridge, but had to shut down the site around 3:30pm when the wind picked up. With so much dirt and dust blowing around, it would've been unwise to carry on applying the liquid rubber. With the site shut down, the crew departed, set to return another day with more cooperative weather.

Liquid Rubber Roof Repair, September 2015, Sherwood Park

This client's flat, metal roof required some patch work with liquid rubber. GRS sent out one of its technicians to carry out the quick repairs over the course of a few hours one day.   Roof Report: September 29, 2015 The three technicians began their day at 7:30, travelling to the garage to retrieve a trailer and some materials. Once loaded, they went out to the client's location and arrived around 10:15am. The technicians inspected the leak and subsequent water damage on the roof and loaded the work area with brushes and liquid rubber that would be suitable to this type of repair. They applied meshing to the expansion joint (approximately 25' long) and began applying liquid rubber to the new seam. Unfortunately, some rain rolling in hindered progress, but the crew took an early lunch and waited for the sun to break back out and help dry up the work area. All said and done, the crew was able to finish up the liquid rubber application by 2:00pm and depart the client's site without any problems arising to necessitate their return.

EPDM Roof Restoration with Liquid Rubber Coatings, September 2015, Edmonton

GRS first carried out an inspection and some light repairs on this commercial building's EPDM roof in April of 2012. There are two roofs in this system, one EPDM and one metal. We began working on the roof in September of 2015, proceeding with an engineered liquid rubber coating, on top of repairing any new fault areas that have developed since then. Check out this page for the original inspection information, though it may be referenced in some sections below.
Table of Contents:
Inspection
Scope of Work
Roof Reports [all 2015]
  Inspection: April 17, 2012 The original inspection is very thorough and worth reviewing. In summary, the EPDM and metal roof was suffering from some puncture holes, leaks, and membrane degradation. The structure itself is sound, but could use some maintenance to address then-current and future problems. Spot repairs could be carried out, or the roof could be recovered with a new watertight system (ie: liquid rubber).   Scope of Work: September 7, 2015 The crew made a list of things to present to the client, covering all of the pertinent safety information and everything needed to demonstrate that the scope of the project has been thoroughly considered. Below is a copy of everything they were prepared to cover.
Required on site to show HSE Manager:
  • GRS tool box documents
  • MSDS (attached)
  • WHIMIS tickets.
  • First aider with ticket
  • Fall arrest tickets
  • First aid kit
  • Pylons and caution tape for 6' control zone
  • Harnesses and ropes
  • Proper safety glasses
  • Steel toe boats (with green triangle symbol)
  • Long sleeve shirts
  • Gloves
 
Other:
  • Liquid rubber - 15 - 17 pails
  • Rollers, sleeves, brushes
  • Seam tape
  • Flashing mesh
  • Pressure washer, hose, electrical - be sure to advise office staff that roof may leak while washing.
  • Rags (materials to dry roof)
  • EPDM repair materials and tools
 
Notes:
  • Access to roof is with roof door - walk out on roof. Do not use ladders to access roof.
  Scope of Work:   Roof 1. EPDM ballast roof restoration. Approximately 36' x 50'
  • Remove rock ballast from half of EPDM roof
  • Wash EPDM roof membrane to white-glove clean
  • Repair EPDM as required
  • Coat half roof with liquid rubber (about 900 sq feet or 3 - 5 pails)
  • Return ballast to EPDM roof
  • Remove rock ballast from other half of EPDM roof
  • Wash EPDM roof membrane to white-glove clean
  • Repair EPDM as required
  • Coat half roof with liquid rubber (about 900 sq feet or 3 - 5 pails)
  • Return ballast to EPDM roof
  Roof 2. Metal Roof Coating. Approximately 56' x 50' Details first. Wash roof and/or internal gutters as required. Dry. Reinforce all your details with liquid rubber and/or seam tape or mesh as required before rolling out or spraying liquid rubber. Check all fasteners and replace as required or coat with liquid rubber. Check all rooftop penetrations, flashing, roof-to-wall connections, roof eave to gutter area, internal gutters and sheet metal connections, internal gutter to wall connections, and seams (especially horizontal) that may be separating. Clear old caulking etc. Add seam tape or mesh with liquid rubber. Coat complete metal roof, in gutters, and up parapet walls 30" in liquid rubber. Be sure to tape off a clean line at wall at a height of 30" or so - the line needs to be clean and straight. Pay close attention to internal gutters especially where sheet metal connects and where the internal gutter is at a vertical meeting the metal roof edge (that's where most leaks on these systems occur).

  Roof Report: September 8, 2015 The team met in the morning for a brief safety meeting with the entire crew present. They then went up to the roof to begin moving the ballast from the west side onto the east side, preparing the area for cleaning. Using pressure washers to clean off the surface, the team found some difficulty with the amount of clay mixed in with the dirt. They sent one of the technicians out to pick up more scrub pads that could handle the tougher soil. Heavy rain began rolling in, so the team had to depart a little bit early. Half of the roof is cleaned off and prepared for the following day's application of liquid rubber. Plan for September 9: Arrive for 7:00am, and put down the first layer of liquid rubber on the now-complete half of the roof. While it cures, the second half of the roof will be prepared for the same.

Scrub pads were used to remove the remaining soil. After the roof was dirt-free, we gave it a final wash.
20150908_150404
We had to shut the site down when heavy rain began to roll in. Half of the roof was cleared and now prepared for liquid rubber applications.
    Roof Report: September 9, 2015 The GRS crew arrived on site for 6:45am, and had their toolbox meeting for fifteen minutes until the client arrived to grant access to the roof. They began by clearing off the residual moisture and prepared to apply the liquid rubber to half of the EPDM roof. In the meanwhile, the other part of the team was at the shop picking up another six buckets of the liquid rubber solution. By the time they'd returned, the first team kept cleaning the metal roof. Half of the metal roof had liquid rubber applied to it, and the technicians kept preparing the gutter and sidewalls for recovery. Once the west side of the EPDM roof had cured, the crew moved the ballast back from the east side. They kept preparing and cleaning the east side for tomorrow's application of liquid rubber, as some rainfall prevented them from more liquid rubber application. Both the EPDM and metal roofs have been half-completed with liquid rubber, with the other half prepared for the following day's work. The customer also reported a heavy leak, which was traced and temporarily patched until it can be addressed at-length.

  Roof Report: September 10, 2015 Work began on the roof around 6:45am, where the team got to cleaning the EPDM roof in preparation for more liquid rubber. Everything was cleaned and prepared for 10:00am, and after a brief coffee break one technician got to applying the rubber solution to the ribs of the metal roof while another applied it to the EPDM. The two remaining crew mates finished up the mesh and detail work on the metal roof, working through 12:30pm until lunch. Resuming at 1:00, they all continued with their assigned tasks until the metal roof was done around 3:00pm. The EPDM roof has a 5' x 36' section still requiring ballast removal, cleaning, and liquid rubber application. It's expected that the work will be finished tomorrow.
20150910_081808
After clearing the ballast rocks from the other half of the EPDM roof, we again had to wash off the clay/dirt mixtures from the surface.
20150910_101401
After washing the detritus, the surface was nearly ready for liquid rubber coatings. Scrub pads were used to remove any remaining buildups. One 5' x 36' section of ballast was still remaining, as well.
20150910_101450
Concurrently, another technician applied coatings to the remaining metal roof's ribs.

    Roof Report: September 11, 2015 The crew arrived on site for 7:30am, and got to cleaning the remaining section of the EPDM roof. By the time they took a break around 10:10am the roof was clean and ready for the liquid rubber. They performed a leak test on the second roof, and made sure that there was no water ingress to the offices below. Once confirmed, they prepared the breather holes on the metal roof's ribbing with mesh and rubber. Lunch break went from 11:30 - 12:00pm, and the EPDM roof was finished shortly after. The rubber has to cure before the ballast can be replaced, so the team moved on to the metal roof to continue adhering the mesh and rubber to the ribbing. Come 2:40pm, they had the site cleaned up and marked the job complete. < End Report >   CODE: 6621 Contact Us Call our 24 hour emergency roof repair at 1.780.424.7663.

Ongoing Roof Leak and Drain Repair in Fort Saskatchewan, July 2015

Below you will find an ongoing series of reports for a leak repair in Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta. The site is currently a work in progress. More updates will be posted as they become available. Scope of Work, July 21 2015: Upon arriving on-site, the client advised me about two leak sites - one in the kitchen and one above a light fixture by the washroom. On the roof, there was a major water ponding issue and lack of drainage. There is also a fryer vent that has major dripping onto the rubber. The grease that is leaking out has, over time, started to eat away at it [the rubber]. Structural integrity has been lost, so the next step is to cut out the damaged area and replace it with a 12 ft. x 12 ft. EPDM fixture. The next scope of work would be to install an internal drain, piped in by a plumber. < End Report > Code: 100 Contact Us Call our 24 hour emergency roof repair at 1.780.424.7663.

Nisku Liquid Rubber Roof Recovery, August 2011

The report below follows services carried out on a metal roof for one of our industrial clients. They sought GRS' assistance in recovering their roof with engineered liquid rubber, with some other spot repairs to complete as needed. Inspection: June 2, 2011 The GRS crew went on location to inspect the existing roof system and take photos that will help the project management group form a better idea of what service will be needed at this location. The photos appear below.
100_0006
Our client had an industrial-grade metal roof. A crew was dispatched to perform an initial inspection with regard to the scope and requirements of performing a roof recovery using engineered liquid rubber.
100_0008
Many of the screws were exposed or missing, with parts of the metal beginning to rust.
100_0009
Rusting at the seams, with exposed screws running the length of this section of the roof.
100_0010
There were signs of previous spot repairs. In this case, caulking had been applied to the screws.
100_0011
More spot repairs, with caulking applied at the seams and over the edges. This solution had expired, with cracks forming along the length of the roof where the caulking had been applied over the seams.
100_0012
Closeup of some old sealant applied over seams and around raised screws. Note the hole in the fastener that had previously been closed off. As well, there are slight buckles in the metal. Each of these deficiencies contribute to common leak entry points and a loss of a metal roof's water shedding properties.
100_0013
We inspected the wall connection, noting whether any components on the wall itself needed to be replaced, and whether we had to order any new flashing as part of the recovery.
100_0016
Sealant had previously been applied to the window sills, flashing, along the wall seams, as well as on the intersection between the flashing and the standing seams on the roof. Besides showing signs of cracking, there was also more rusting along the walls.
100_0017
Significant rusting on the flashing, with an unsealed base for the rooftop appliance. As well, the edging over the window sills is not flush with each segment. Further down, it can be seen to be curling up from the window.
  Quotation Delivered: June 6, 2011 After seeing the roofers' investigation photos and measurements, GRS' project management could deliver an accurate quotation for services to be carried out of the roof. Included in the quotation were two separate services; the engineered liquid rubber application and an EPDM installation for the area around two eaves. Also attached to the quotation were the documents and web links surrounding GRS' workmanship guarantee, system methods, schedule availability for the season, and more. There was another note mentioned that regarding schedule availability, it's best to book liquid rubber jobs earlier in the season for when it's warmer. Even though the solution will bond, it performs best when applied in warmer weather.   Roof Report: July 20, 2011 The crew went out to the client's building and got to administering trowel-grade liquid rubber to all penetrations, joints, and problematic areas that has been previously discovered. They also did a lap around the perimeter, ensuring watertightness on the high-risk parts of the roof. They then set up the pump to apply the spray-on liquid rubber and managed to cover roughly one-quarter of the roof itself. Their plan was to finish the entirety of the roof the following day, so they packed up the equipment, cleaned the site, and closed the site for the evening.

By the end of the day, our technicians managed to coat one-quarter of the entire roof.
    Site Inspection: August 1, 2011   One of the senior members of GRS' crew went on-site to inspect the liquid rubber application and found it to be forming a good seal. There was some water that had formed a small bubble in the rubber, but once popped it was deemed fit for continued use as the rubber still formed a solid barrier to the metal.   Roof Report: November 25, 2011 Several months after the initial liquid rubber coating, the client call in to report some other leaks in separate areas of the roof. GRS sent a team out to the site to investigate and carry out the necessary repairs. They administered sealant to the flashing where the wall meets the north-facing roof edge, and again on the south-west corner of the building. They also sealed in the wall-to-roof spots on the west-facing wall and inspected the existing wall spray. After carrying out the spot repairs, they had a better idea of what else needed to be done to the roofing system, and returned the following report:
  • The west-facing wall where the windows are is 3' x 78'. Will need 100' x 6" skrim sheet, and roughly 16 man-hours to install it.
  • The north-facing wall is 3' x 40'. Need 50' x 6" skrim sheet for another 12 man-hours to install.
  • The west-facing wall's upper roof is 3' x 24'. Need 25'x6" skrim sheet and 10 man-hours to finish.
The site was cleaned up, and the crew departed, leaving the repair options in the hands of the client.   This report will be updated as more reports come in, should the client elect to move forward with repairs.

Leduc Metal Roof Repairs, June 17, 2015

Article: Liquid Rubber Spot Repairs to an Industrial Roof in Leduc, Alberta.

Metal roofing expands and contracts more than any other roofing material. The expansion and contraction of seams, fasteners, flashing, gutters and curbs causes leaks. Below is a site report from a repair crew that did metal roof spot repairs to an industrial location in Leduc, Alberta. June 10, 2014: Crew Arrives On-Site for Roof Inspection and to Assess What Material Needed. 7010 45 Street Leduc Alberta.
Materials:
  • 2 pails of liquid rubber.
  • 1 pail trowel grade.
  • 3 tubes caulking.
  • 10 to 12 man hours.
Gutter Needing Repair
Blistering adjacent to a gutter system, with exposed pockets along the edge.
Old Repairs Failing

Old Repair
Asphalt-based products are most prone to sun (UV) damage. This old repair was past its age due to sun exposure over time, with no touch-ups applied.
  June 18, 2014: Our Leduc Roofing Repair Crew Arrives On-Site for Repairs. Today we cleaned the roof with the pressure washer including the gutter. The gutter took awhile as it had three inches of mud in it. By the end of the day we got most of the units done and the ridge cap complete. I would say about 60% complete. Tomorrow we will finish the gutters and fasteners. We will have site 100% complete tomorrow weather permitting.

Liquid rubber coatings around the base and detailing on vents.
June 20, 2014: Crew Arrives on Site for Completion of Work.  Today we finished all the units and details. I got the other technicians to start the fasteners as we worked on the gutters. We had to coat and line the whole thing with liquid rubber and cloth and then a second coat of liquid rubber. When we finished we helped finish the fasteners and the roof was complete. I got the customer to come up to the roof and do a walk through. He was happy with the work. Materials:
  • 5 Pails of liquid rubber brush grade.
  • 1 pail trowel grade.
  • 2 rolls of 6 inch x 100 ft. rolls of mesh.
  • 6 paint brushes.
  • 2 rollers.

Below you will find the process of installing a liquid rubber coating.  June 22, 2014: Crew Arrives on Site to Start Detail Work.  Today we did almost all of our seams, corners and details with mesh and liquid rubber. This took some time because all the seams where lifted and really dirty. We had to do them over all the detail and units we had use trowel grade over all them. There was holes and voids throughout them. We sealed them with liquid rubber brush grade. I will be returning Monday to finish site.
