Edmonton Emergency Roof Repair, July 2012

This client called into GRS' line to have an emergency dispatch crew to their roof so that they might lay down some tarps and prevent further water ingress. We arrived to put down tarping, and discussed repair options with the client from there. Our crew received the emergency dispatch to the address provided, and loaded the truck with necessary tarping materials to cover the problem area(s) on the roof. Work was difficult as the roof structure's condition was hazardous to work on. The tarping was laid down eventually, and the team left shortly before 5:00pm (two hour job).

Edmonton Shingle Roof Repairs, April 2011

The report below follows repairs made to a shingle roof on our client's residence. They required a section of shingles replaced, addressing a leak coming in through the area. Quotation Delivered: April 11, 2011 We sent out one of our technicians to perform an investigation of the roof that would form the basis of a quote for services rendered. Included in the quote was our spring season availability, and we eventually booked them for service in late April. Roof Report: April 24, 2011 The technician arrived on site for 8:30am, and got to work removing the affected shingles and hunting down the leaking area. This carried through 11:30 when they departed for lunch and to pick up more materials. They returned to continue work at 12:30, repairing the leak and replacing the removed shingles until 3:00pm. The repairs involved opening up the vent area between trusses and reinstalling the plywood, membrane, and shingles. In addition to the above, four downspouts were installed (14' each). Service Followup: September 11, 2011 The client reached out to us, advising that they had come upon a leak into their garage in the midst of some rainfall. They had another roofing company come in to investigate, and had found that some of the shingles installed by the previous technician were not done to proper standard. In their email, they hoped we would honour our warranty and come do the necessary repairs. We sent out one of our own technicians, who were able to corroborate the other company's findings - some of the shingles were not fully overlapping to the accepted standard. Our technician brought two bundles of shingles to the site, and had to leave briefly to get a third. The 'old' shingles were removed and the ice and water membrane reapplied. Then, new shingles were affixed properly to finish repairs to the faulty area.

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.
