Temporary Residential Roof Repair, December 2013, St. Albert

This is the third report in a series of services GRS has carried out at this particular residential location. This service call had us return to address even more newfound leaks in the flat roofing system. GRS cleared off the snow, investigated the sources of water ingress, and laid down tarps to stave off further leaking until the spring and dry weather arrive.

St. Albert Liquid Rubber Coating, December 2013

This report covers the second liquid rubber coating job in a series of repairs made to this client's roofing system. This visit, they required some newly-found leaks to be repaired with another application of liquid rubber solution. GRS went on-site to dry off the roof surface and make all the necessary repairs.   Roof Report: November 4, 2013 The team started their day when they arrived at the liquid rubber shop for 9:30am. They picked up five pails of brush-grade liquid rubber for the work site. Knowing that the scope of work entailed bringing the liquid rubber to 2' height from the roof surface to the adjoining wall, they made sure to pick up the appropriate amount for the project. As this team is based out-of-town, they travelled to the work site and arrived for 4:30pm with all gear on hand. They filled out all of the safety documents and paperwork, then went up on the roof to begin. An area heater was brought up to the roof, and the existing snow and plastic was removed to make room for the affected areas in need of repair. For the final order of business, the team called the client (then-currently away from the location) to inform them that work on the repairs would commence the following morning. They departed the site around 5:30pm with everything in order for the next day's work.   Roof Report: November 7, 2013 This day had the GRS crew arrive on site for 11:30am, where they got to removing the tarps and examining the area for moisture. Most of the surface was dry, save for some spots near the chimney. A tarp and the heater was set up to assist in drying off the roof some more, and they began the liquid rubber application to the areas dry enough for adhesion. The damp area required some more time to dry, so the team left the site around 12:00pm; set to return when the damp spots were ready.   Roof Report: November 15, 2013 The team arrived for 9:45am on this day, ready to remove the tarp, heater, and get to applying more of the brush-grade liquid rubber. They applied the liquid rubber to the now-dry spots near the chimney, completing this round of temporary repairs to the roof. The client was informed that the repairs were completed, and the crew cleaned up the site to head off for around 10:30am.   Previous Visit: http://edmontonroofrepair.ca/st-albert-liquid-rubber-roof-recovery-july-2013/   Next Visits: http://edmontonroofrepair.ca/st-albert-temporary-tarp-roof-repair-december-2013/ http://edmontonroofrepair.ca/st-albert-liquid-rubber-roof-recovery-july-2013-2/   CODE: 60 Contact Us Call our 24 hour emergency roof repair at 1.780.424.7663.

St. Albert Liquid Rubber Roof Coating, July 2013

This report is the first in a series of repairs and services that GRS has carried out for this particular client and their residential roofing system. The first covers a liquid rubber application to seal up some leaks in the existing roof. The article will be updated with links [at the bottom of this page] once the other reports have been posted. Quotation Delivered: June 13, 2013 GRS delivered a quotation to the client, detailing both the replacement and roof recovery options available to their existing roofing system. The client elected to move forward with an engineered liquid rubber roof recovery, so we booked them in for service to commence shortly.   Roof Report: July 16, 2013 The crew arrived on site for 4:30pm, setting up the area for the work to be carried out. Come 8:00pm, the site was fully prepared and the crew departed for the evening.   Roof Report: August 2, 2013 The GRS team went back to the client's site to get back to working on the recovery. The bulk of the day consisted of removing as much of the Portland cement as possible, and identifying all the possible areas of water ingress. Once the cement had been cleared out, they applied Barr squeegee-grade over the affected areas to smooth out the surface. The final task for the day was spraying on a flood coat of the liquid rubber, using up around one-third of the barrel of solution. With the leaks dealt with, the team departed the job site, considering it complete. Regrettably, there are no photos for this project that remain accessible - please accept our apologies! The featured image above is from a later project at the same location, giving an indication of the roof's status.   Follow-up Visits to the Site: http://edmontonroofrepair.ca/st-albert-liquid-rubber-roof-repair-december-2013/ http://edmontonroofrepair.ca/st-albert-temporary-tarp-roof-repair-december-2013/ http://edmontonroofrepair.ca/st-albert-liquid-rubber-roof-recovery-july-2013-2/   CODE: 60 Contact Us Call our 24 hour emergency roof repair at 1.780.424.7663.

  • Shoveled snow.
  • Prepped work site.
  • Unloaded material.
We spoke with the client and they are happy with what’s going to be done for the scope of work. We received the key for the garage (stored material inside). The siding and metal are going to be one full long day of work. Inside the garage all of the joists are uneven and must be cut with a skill saw then sanded in a few places. Tools must also be cleaned. We told the home owner that we will fix the drain. photo (10) photo (11) photo (12) photo (13) photo (14) Roof Report, November 26, 2012:
  • Removed rotten wood.
  • Started framing.
  • Shoveled snow.
  • Installed J-channel.
  • Picked up material for site.
We talked to the client and he was happy with the work done so far. He asked if it’s possible for us to order the rest of siding. We still have a lot of work to do ripping the wood and finishing prep. It is going to take 2 days for us to finish. photo(1) photo(3) photo(4) photo(5) photo(6) photo(7) photo(8) photo(9) photo(11) photo(12) photo(13) photo(14) photo Roof Report, November 27, 2012: Today we ripped off the old plywood and installed the J-trim. The plywood under the siding must be replaced because it is rotten. We agreed to install the siding and soffit but the plywood under is rotten and we are not able to nail into it. We spoke with the client today and explained to him that we are going to be getting a quote for the extra work to be done (as well as the cost of the new plywood). He replied that he is okay with it and he is ready to sign for it when the quote is prepared. photo(22) photo(23) photo(24) photo(25) photo(26) photo(27) Roof Report, December 20, 2012:
  • Framed garage.
  • Installed plywood and 2x4.
We didn’t have any metal tools to cut the J-trim soffit and fascia, and the compressor broke down on us which slowed down the job process. None of the siding was delivered today so we worked on the framing and installing plywood. We are also waiting to get an electrician to fix some electrical before we cover it with plywood and siding. I talked to the client and he said he is going to be taking care of it tomorrow. We are going back tomorrow first thing in the morning to finish framing and siding. photo(1) photo(3) photo(5) photo(6) photo(9) photo(10) Roof Report, December 21, 2012:
  • Finished framing.
  • Made sure it’s water proofed.
  • Installed soffit and fascia.
It was -24 with the wind chill today, we had a hard time using the compressor and the nail gun as they kept freezing on us. That is why we had to do framing manually which slowed down the process of work. I spoke to our project manager and explained that we finished a few things but the weather is not in our favour and is slowing us down. He advised to stop for the day as it is much too cold to work outside and advised us to talk to the client to explain the situation. I went and spoke to the client and he understands completely. I told him we are going to be back to finish his garage when it’s warmer. The client does not mind us coming back later on to finish. photo(11) photo(19) photo(20) photo(21) photo(22) photo(23) photo(24) photo(25) photo(26) Roof Report, December 29, 2012:
