Edmonton Roof Repair and Siding Install, May 2012

This report follows a major siding installation and some additional torch-on roof repairs. Our crew was dispatched to complete the work and their progress is documented below. Roof Report, May 15, 2012: We built the roof up with ISO board which required lots of little cuts because when the roof was cut open they didn't cut it straight. We used 3.3 inch board and had to build it up 8 inches which was a time consuming task.
One crew member torched in a gum cup and I did two hours of fire-watch afterwards. We placed FR board on top and then screwed all of the FR board down with 10 inch screws and piranha plates. Peel and stick was applied up the wall about half way down the roof, except under the stairs because they were ripping them out next day. By then it was 7:30 pm and was too late to try to torch any caps.

Roof Report, May 22, 2012: Arrived on site at 8:00 A.M and had a toolbox meeting with all crew members present, they signed all applicable documents. We inspected the siding job and the rigid insulation was complete but some Tyvek insulation had blown off. A crew member left to gather starter strip and hammer tacker. We were able to put up half of the lower section of the siding.

A decision was made to use finishing strips instead of J-channel where the siding meets the soffit and at the separation between the bottom and top half.
We also got some caulking to seal the edges below the window and in the flashing. We then worked on the angled area on the West side of the roof. We took a break from that and started laying starter strip on the upper section of wall above the sloped roof. We then continued laying panels and covered the section. At this point we decided to begin clean up and finish up for the day. Roof Report, May 27, 2012: We arrived on site and continued placing siding until one in the afternoon.  There are only about 10 panels to lay until we're done and we intend to finish by Monday morning. The soffit and fascia will still need to be installed.
Roof Report, May 30, 2012: We have almost completed the project, there are only a few touch-ups and some clean up left to do.
The final tasks are to fill in the last two pieces of soffit, seal up the flashing on the East side of the wall, dismantle scaffolding, seal in the windows with caulking, and replace a single vertical strip around the corner on the West side of the wall.
Completion Report, May 30, 2012: We removed the old siding and replaced a few panels of rigid foam insulation before beginning.  We installed the trim and flashing.  We added an additional ledge to the flashing that goes over the J-channel as per the owners request. We installed the siding itself, as well as the soffit and fascia on the lower section.  It did not look like the soffit and fascia on the upper section needed to be switched out. Replacement of that soffit and fascia would require removing flashing that extends to the opposite side of the roof. We then caulked the areas where it appeared water may be able to enter, and replaced the missing piece that was around the corner on the East facing wall.  It took about 8 days to complete the job under mostly good conditions. Wrong material selection and rain slowed us down a bit in the beginning. We cleaned the site of everything we used before leaving. < End Report > CODE: 8310 Contact Us Call our 24 hour emergency roof repair at 1.780.424.7663.

Residential Roof Snow Removal Edmonton & Leak Mitigation, January 2011

Article: Roof Snow Removal Edmonton.

Below you will find a series of roof reports from the Edmonton roofing repair crew clearing snow from a residential roof to alleviate leaking. The client had a shingle roof on a two-storey building. Roof Report, January 22 2011: I checked the roof for leaks and determined water was getting into the soffit due to an ice dam on the upper right side (facing the backyard). The attic inspection showed that all appeared to be well except the vent running along the roof ridge was plugged and not working. After discussing payment, we cleared the lower roof of snow and ice damming. The upper roof at this time of the day was unsafe. Firstly, the cooler temperature results in harder snow, and secondly, there was water under the ice dam that spanned 4.5' up the roof. We will attempt to clear this area tomorrow. Roof Report, January 23 2011: As we had anticipated yesterday, our crew was able to finish clearing all the snow from the roof. This client should not be experiencing leaks anymore. < End Report > Code: 14875 Contact Us Call our 24 hour emergency roof repair at 1.780.424.7663.
