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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Roof Report, December 29, 2012:

- Installed all siding.
- Cleaned tools to client's satisfaction.
- Cleaned garage.
