Edmonton Commercial EPDM Roof Repair, July 2013

The leaking area was located and plastic cement was applied with cotton. The area with the scupper was also sealed with plastic cement. One of the caps on the front ramp section was caulked, however an inside corner still needs to be sealed properly. 15 areas at the pool section were cleaned and then repaired using plastic cement. In order to fix the leaking skylight plastic cement was placed around the hatch.
Materials Used:
  • 5 pails of plastic cement.
  • 1 role of 6" cotton.

The crew spoke with the client at the front desk and he is satisfied with the work done to date. The majority of the leaks have been repaired at this point.

Edmonton Cedar Shake Roof Replacement, August 2012

The client reached out to us to have a sloped roof (cedar shake) replaced. The shakes were in poor condition, with many cracking or missing. In the process of the re-roofing, it was deemed that ridge vents should also be installed. The client requested an estimate for regular laminated shingles, and was provided estimates for them alongside many of the similar types of roofing systems (shingles) offered after our crew performed some assessments and minor repairs to the existing structure. Their decision for roofing material was made simpler when our crew arrived with samples of various sorts (metal clad, UDL, ice & water barrier, and the requested laminated shingles). The current plan is to have the re-roofing completed before winter, so that it might protect the home from the weather. Field Report, August 11 2012: We did an estimate for the client and completed light repairs as a temporary fix. Tar was applied around the chimney. Field Report, August 12 2012: Today a skylight repair was performed, which eliminated condensation buildup. A hole in the corner of the skylight was also patched. We then provided an estimate on new chimney cap and applied tar to all five pipes.   Shake Roof Replacement 1 Shake Roof Replacement 2 Shake Roof Replacement 3 Shake Roof Replacement 4 Shake Roof Replacement 5 Shake Roof Replacement 6 Shake Roof Replacement 7 Shake Roof Replacement 8 Shake Roof Replacement 9 Shake Roof Replacement 10 Shake Roof Replacement 11 Shake Roof Replacement 12 Shake Roof Replacement 13   chimney repair close nail 2 chimney repair 2 chimney repair 1 close nail tar around chimney tar nails hole in the corner condesation build-up Until next time,         The Roofers at GRS CODE: 54 Contact Us Call our 24 hour emergency roof repair at 1.780.424.7663.
