EPDM Flat Roof Replacement Edmonton, June 12, 2015

Article: EPDM Flat Roof Replacement. Residential Low Slope Project.

Below is a site report detailing the installation of an EPDM flat roof replacement in Edmonton, Alberta. The roof was originally a built-up tar and gravel low slope roof that connected to a shingle pitched roof system. Considerations with respect to flat roof systems. When considering flat roof replacement options, it is best to consult experts prior to choosing which membrane you will use, what will make up the roof system, and how the roof assembly will be put together. There are many considerations such as slope of roof, drainage scuppers and internal drains, insulation value, which membranes work best in your climate, what will the effect be on the building efficiency, and much more. All decisions are vital to immediate and long-term success. A flat roof is a considerable expense so you want to be very cautious to make the right decisions.

May 9, 2013: Crew Arrives For Assessment. Flat Roof Inspection.  This is a tar and gravel flat roof that connects to a steep pitch shingle roof. The roof is leaking and has been for some time in different areas. The roof is soft and spongy and there will be some replacement of sheathing and possibly the insulation. The roof is 960 square feet and needs to be re-sloped. The old roof would have to be removed to add enough room for re-sloping.

Flat Roof Replacement Edmonton. June 10, 2015.

Article: SBS Modified Bitumen Torch-On Residential Flat Roof Replacement Edmonton, Alberta.

We pride ourselves in quality residential and commercial flat roof repair and replacement. Having quality journeyman roofers ensures our work is always top quality. The  following installation report is a SBS Modified Bitumen Torch-On Residential Flat Roof Replacement in Edmonton, Alberta. May 14, 2015: Flat Roof Crew Arrives to Start Re-Roof. 7:30 am arrive on site. We started the day with our tool box meetings. We then set up ladder and brought all tools needed for job up to roof. We started removing the metal flashing from perimeter of roof. We also began shoveling gravel in to rows. Once all the gravel was off the roof, we then started to rip up the old roof. Once we had the old roof half ripped up the trailer was full so we did a dump run. We also stopped at Home Depot to pick up some 5/8 plywood for re-sheathing. Once back on site we filled the trailer again and then swept the roof. We had to re-sheath two areas; one on the east side of roof and one on the south side of the roof. Both were 4 ft x 8 ft sections, so 64 sq. ft. total. Once we had that done, we then layered in our fiber board (FR board). We  mechanically fastened the FR board to the roof using screws and plates. I then started torching while the other guys continued to screw in plates and start peal and stick on the perimeter. We managed to get the base sheet done 95%. There is just one small section left to torch (of the base sheet portion).

  May 8, 2015: Crew attends for day two of flat roof replacement. We got to site and finished torching in the base. Once the base was complete we had to take off the 2 bottom rows of siding because the coating on the back of it was highly flammable. Once it was off, we also had to use peal and stick to seal of the siding so no flames would enter in behind. After this was done we started capping. By the end of the day we got 80% of the field capped. By late afternoon the wind was too strong and kept blowing out torch so we left site at 5 pm.

Once all the stripping was complete, we started our fire watch. We also put all the metal and siding back on. Site is now 100% complete and customer is happy with the work we did.

Residential Flat Roof Repair Edmonton, June 9 2015

Article: Residential Flat Roof Repair Edmonton, Alberta. EPDM Low Slope Roof Membrane.

Repair of an EPDM low slope roof on a residential home in Edmonton, Alberta. The low slope (flat) roof transitions to a pitched shingle roof. Penetrations and challenges include chimney, skylights, vents, drainage, ice damming, and insulating value on low slope. Additionally the transition between the low and steep roof systems posed challenges. Also a section on choosing the correct low slope membrane and roof assembly.
This customer had originally called us when Edmonton had set records for snow-fall in January of 2012. She had significant snow loads on her roof and the concern was that her roof may collapse. So we removed the snow from her roof and discovered significant ice damming challenges on the low slope portion.
We returned in 2013 and 2014 to do regular roof snow removal because every-time the snow built up on the roof the heat from inside her home would get to the underside of the low slope roof sheathing and cause ice damming. The ice dams would then get in between the laps of the existing roof membrane and result in leaks.
Mid 2014 she contacted us to quote on the replacement of the low slope roofing with hopes of solving the problem.
We quoted the various options for low slope roofing membranes, which included; Spray Foam (SPF), Tar and Gravel, SBS Torch-On, EPDM, TPO, PVC and Liquid Rubber.
Our standard quotations include pricing for the different options available for flat roof system membranes, a roof inspection report, a write-up on the pro's and con's of each type of system and our recommendations for your most suitable roof membrane choices.
Below is a sample flat roof quotation. The first link is a PDF download and the second is a Word Doc file download.
Our customer chose to replace her failing tar and gravel built up roof with an EPDM single ply membrane roof recovery (or retro-fit). This means that we removed the gravel and skinned the bitumen membrane off and then mechanically fastened a roof board and then fully adhered the EPDM. We also did some drain work and scupper work. Our customer did not opt for a complete removal, re-sloping with an engineered slope insulation system, or any additional R value added which could also have been done with simple rigid type insulation boards.
In early 2015 our customer had called with leaks to the low slope membrane - the ice dams were back. This is an important lesson in choosing the correct roof membrane, insulation, drainage, re-sloping and more. Had we been able to re-slope the roof and been able to add insulation value, the heat from the inside of the home would not escape and get to the underside of the roof membrane and cause ice damming. But, the customer requested the least expensive options and even though our reports (see link above for sample quotation and inspection report) explain in detail most considerations, this is the way it was requested to be done by the customer.
So this spring we returned to find the same ice damming causing issues with a now new membrane. We also found drainage issues which were expected - the roof was ponding because a re-slope was not in our scope. And there were some technical (debatable) installation tweaks that may or may not have been required. Nonetheless, we now had a new roof leaking the year after it was installed.
So of course we once again suggested the upgrade options to alleviate the issue but the customer would have nothing with that and requested we simply do the repairs and move on.
Below is an account from the crew of the type of repairs they did to try and mitigate any issues in the future (full well knowing that the prime aggravating factors are insulation value and sloping).
May 5, 2015: Crew Attends to Residential Flat Roof Repair.  We arrived on site at 9:58. We started the day with the toolbox meeting and safety documents. We then went up on roof to determine an installation plan. The scope of work we decided on and did is as follows.
Scope of Work # 1 The first step was to pull all EPDM down to flat roof from under the shingles at the bottom of the sloped roof. This reinstall was to ensure no water could be coming from the flat roof to steep pitch roof transition. We then had to remove all metal flashing from around the two skylights and chimney on the roof. Once we had all the EPDM pulled we started lifting shingles along the first few rows of the sloped roof and applied the EPDM bonding adhesive. This was done under the first couple layers of shingles and to the underside of the EPDM. We then installed the EPDM back under the shingles. Then next step was to apply a bead of water block on the edge of the EPDM under the shingles. Once that was complete we secured EPDM by screwing a piece of turn-bar down on the edge of the EPDM where the water block bead was applied.
Scope of Work # 2 The crew arrived on site at 1 pm and started working on the cricket behind the chimney.  He started by cutting a piece of EPDM 7'x3'. He then had to take the Epdm bonding adhesive and apply in the same manner as the work in scope # 1 by applying the adhesive under the shingles as well as the under side of the Epdm. Once the 7'x3' piece was installed he started working on the corners. Using quick prime and seam tape he seamed in the corners of the Epdm around the chimney.
 
WORK LEFT TO DO: -patch corners -more turn bar and water block -install and or replace shingles Roughly 6 hours of work left to complete.
MATERIALS USED: -7'x3' piece of EPDM -EPDM bonding adhesive 1/3 of a pail -screws -30 ' of termination bar - 2 tubes of water block -tube of caulking for skylights -half a tube of lap sealer for temporary seals -6 feet of seam tape - quick prime 1/8th of a pail.

May 8, 2015: Residential Flat Roof Repair Crew Attends.
We started at 7:30 AM with a daily tool box meeting. We then got up on the roof and started shoveling snow away from work area so we could complete today's scope of work.
Scope #1. Scope one consisted of applying corner patches to the rear corners of the chimney. The next step was to apply tape primer to the EPDM surface on the corner of the chimney. We then cut 6"×6" squares of 6" covers strip  to use at the corner patch.  We applied  this piece on top of the tape primer and let it sit to cure.
Scope #2. Install termination bar for the EPDM on the front of the skylights. For this we measured and cut a piece of turn bar to fit the front side of the sky light. We then screwed (mechanically fastened) the termination bar.
Scope #3. We had to take the bottom two layers of shingles off and replace with new ones. For this we had to carefully lift the bottom rows of shingles and pry out the nails so the shingles would slide out. We then took the new shingles and installed them. This consisted of laying down the first layer and nailing in place. The next step was to put on the second row of shingles which slid under the old existing one and nailed in place half way down the first shingle we layer down. Job is complete.

    • Caulking under vents, exposed nails, valleys, etc.
    • Replacement of rotted roof sheathing up to 100 sq. ft.
Work Order, June 4 2014:
  • Scope: Re-roof house, attached garage, and small rear shed
Materials
  • Field Shingles - 33 Sq of Malarkey Legacy Antique Brown Shingles (129 Bundle at 4 bundle sq)
  • Cap Shingles - 100 lineal ft of  Malarkey product number 224 - EZ Ridge 10" to be set up over the ridge vent strips at ridge of roof
  • Starter Shingles - 300 lineal feet of starter (whichever is recommended with Malarkey Legacy Shingles)
  • Eave drip edge - 140 lineal feet of color drip edge metal to be installed at eave of roof roof sheathing
  • Ridge Vent - 60 lineal feet of Lo-Omni Ridge vent is 9" wide for install under the Malarkey EZ Ridge 10" shingle
  • Plumbing Boots - 3 neoprene or plastic
  • Goose Necks - 2 colored goose-necks with-out baffle (screen only)

  • Underlay -  31 square of synthetic breathable underlay choice GAF-Elk Deck Armour
  • Ice and Water - 240 lineal feet of 44" ice and water
Specifications
  • Inspection of attic space - check intake air at soffits to ensure insulation is not covering intake air that cools the attic.
  • Check exhaust venting at ridge to check if it is clear and calculate proper exhaust required for attic size - approximately 1 sq foot of exhaust venting is required for every 100 - 300 sq ft of roof attic space to properly ventilate the attic.
  • Check insulation for moisture damage. Damaged insulation will not work anymore (it will have no R Value) and must be removed.
  • Inspect sheathing for water damage.
  • Flashing all along the eaves-trough.
  • Rake-flashing along all rakes/gables.
  • Ice & Water along all eaves, valleys, flashing edges after sheet metal installation, back pans, and penetrations. Ice and water membrane is used to keep freeze thaw ice in the gutters from wicking back up and under shingles and warming at the sheathing and creating a roof leak in to the home.
  • Replace all vents and bathroom exhausts, with optional ridge venting included.
  • Supply and install metal back-pan for chimney.
  • Replace all goose-neck vents.
  • Replace all vents and exhausts with rubber-sealed screws instead of shingle nails at exposed areas (regular shingle nails can work back out of sheathing over time and can leak because the nails are exposed and caulking them will over time fade).
  • Storm-nail all shingles. Storm nailing shingles requires six nails vs. four nails in to each shingle.
  • Re-caulk storm collars and rain-caps with polybitumen or high grade polymer caulking (tar caulking will crack). Using a high quality UV resistant caulking in roofing is important.
  • Clean all gutters and downspouts.
  • Dispose of all materials, and full cleanup with magnetic roller so that no roofing nails are left in grass to hurt household pets or children playing.

Commercial, Industrial, Residential Roof Repair Crews 24/7
The Edmonton region is to be the first of a series of local roof repair blogs that GRS is  launching This Month GRS delivers Roof and Emergency Roof Repair Services to the Edmonton area. providing services such as: Commercial, Residential, and Industrial Repairs to Flat, Metal, and Pitched Roofing, installing Shingles, Tile, Slate, Shakes, Rubber, Metal, and more. This week, General Roofing Systems Canada (GRS) launched the first of what are a series of local roof repair articles. What makes the articles the most unique is the factor of the articles being submitted from the roofers themselvesWhen asked, the GRS roof repair managers had these comments:
Flat Roof Membranes
Metal and Flat Roof Repair
When General Roofing Systems first started this process a few years ago (with a main roofing article blog), management would select roofers  randomly to write and post articles covering various roof repair problems and solutions they would encounter while working in the field. In fact, every crew is required to provide daily reports from mobile offices in the crew trucks. These roof inspection, repair, and maintenance reports were actually the original inspiration behind the articles being posted to a blog. "The process of our roofers reporting from the field was already in our policy.  Now it is just a daily part of the job, the same as checking in and out of a work site each day." "Our customers would always comment about the articles in meetings, it was a great way for us to know that they were a success and helped  us to continue with the articles."
222
Roof Maintenance on Commercial, Industrial, and Residential
  "The home-owners, commercial property owners, and industrial facility managers  are able to find information that assists them with specific problems they are experiencing  with their roofs. I think it's only obvious that the local roof repair articles are even more of an advantage to our customers than our main roofing blog would be due to local weather issues and advisories such as warnings against  hail and snow." We learned this from the  recent articles on the wind storms in Calgary that blew the shingles off thousands of roofs, or the roof collapses last winter in Edmonton when we had upwards to sixty workers shoveling snow off roofs at a time.  Or in cases such as the troubles the Vancouver area had with several  metal and flat roof repairs. It is a great service to our customers to be able to provide instant access to solutions  for when disaster strikes. Our customers are then able to have access to several links that connect them automatically to the  Emergency Roof Repair knowledge and a real-time on-site response. "From what I understand, we become the published authors and our customers will be able to contact us direct from the articles either online, by direct call to the crew truck, or as required in person, all at the local immediate level. I think our customers will really find this be a great benefit." 
Emergency Roof Repair Office
An Alberta Crew Reporting on Internet From Crew Truck
In summary, GRS customers  will now have direct access to articles, photos, videos of roof repair problems (and solutions). They will be able to visit with  senior roof repair technicians at a local level either on-line or in person , to solvarious roofing problems. It puts the contributor at a local level, providing real time and being that the contributor to the roof repair article is the actual roofer doing the repair, the service is then that much more accurate and personal. The contributors of the articles are required to send information to the repair blog and are responsible for responding quick and efficient responses to all home/business owner inquiries. The Edmonton chapter of our blog is only the beginning, we hope to branch out to all areas and keep providing assistance in all shapes and forms.

Edmonton Roof Underlay Installation, March 2011

This Edmonton client wanted an Roof Ice and Water Underlay (peel and stick) installed to the roof in one corner of their residence to mitigate against ice dams. GRS provided a quote for the job and scheduled roofers to go on location to make the necessary repairs. Inquiry Received, March 13 2011: We heard from the client in mid-March after they had a big buildup of snow and ice on their sloped, shingle roof residence. The client is in an ongoing partnership with GRS for another job, so the bulk of correspondence was done over the phone or in-person with administrative staff handling the other contract. Below are photos submitted by the client to assist in the quotation process: Image001 Image005 Image006 Image008 Image009 Assessment, April 27 2011: The first work order was sent out and our crew began the preparations for this job. The scope of the work is as follows:
  1. Remove the shingles on both sides of both dormers.
  2. Install valley and/or step as required.
  3. Install the Ice and Water Membrane under valley and step areas to both dormer areas.
  4. Ice and water membrane, then metal, then ice and water membrane on they valley metal sides.
