Roof Canopy Reconstruction Edmonton, Alberta. Flat Roof. Tar and Gravel. Multi-Family.

Below is a continuation report from our Tar and Gravel Roof Repair blog entry on May 31, 2015. The continuation below describes the reconstruction of the front entry door roof canopy of the condo that the crew was working on. April 30, 2015: Roofing crew attends to location for reconstruction of the entry canopy. Location: 10315 113 Street NW Edmonton, Alberta. Type of Property: Multi Family.
We arrived at 7:30 am and filled out safety documentation and conducted our tool box safety site meeting. We had 2 different scopes of work to do to finish work on this building. The first scope consists of re-installing the metal flashing on perimeter the perimeter of the tar and gravel flat roof. The scope of work consists of overlapping the existing metal flashing that was on the building and fastening the end of each piece of flashing. The second scope was the reconstruction of the entry door roof canopy and installation of the waterproofing flat roof membrane material. The old tar and gravel membrane had been removed prior. Today we started by ripping off the old rotten plywood and 2" x 6" 's. We then framed in some new 2"x 6" 's to replace the old rotten joists pieces. We then used 2" x 4" 's to make a lever and push up on the front left corner to bring it up level with the rest of canopy. Raised it up roughly 3 inches. When the other guys finished up installing metal on the flat roof they started helping us with the remaining work on the front entry. At this point the canopy was up to level and had new trusses installed. We installed new 1/2" plywood sheathing on top of the trusses and screwed it all down for a secure substrate. We then fabricated a new cant flashing and installed all new cant around the left hand side and left front of the canopy. The next step was to install the FR board (which is a roof board with the base sheet SBS modified attached to it at the factory) on top of the plywood and screwed it down. We then had to stop due to rain and the site was set-off for completion. The crew will finish off the installation of the 2 ply SBS modified torch-on roof membrane tomorrow (including base striping, SBS cap sheet install and putting the metal flashing back on). There are roughly 5 hours of work left to complete. MATERIALS USED. 2 - 4' x 8' sheets of plywood. 3 - 2" × 6" 8 ' pieces. Wood screws. 2 - sheets of FR board (SBS modified base membrane with roof board attached). 4 - 2"×4" 8' pieces for the cant flashing.

Jan 26, 2015: Emergency Repair Call to our 24 Hour Dispatch Center.
This call came in from one our customers that works for a large commercial management company in Edmonton, Alberta. She had a new tenant moving in to a commercial bay that was doing leasehold improvements prior to opening in a few days. The issue was that the roof began leaking and it was ruining the renovations to the interior of the restaurant.
We attended the location within an hour to assess and found that a number of locations on the roof needed repair. The roof itself is in a failed state and should be replaced but the building owner directed us through the management firm to only do temporary repairs.
We did what we could to stop any water from leaking inside the property that evening and then the next day we had our roofers do the temporary repairs as requested by the owner.
Below is a summary report and photos of the work done.
Jan 27, 2015: Repair Crew Attends to Work Site.

We arrived on-site at 7:20 am to find the problems with the roof. The building management representative had reported leaks and our emergency response techs were in attendance the night before.
We performed our daily site safety procedures (including tool-box meeting, site hazard, and fall plan).
Once we were on the roof we saw that the old patch previous roofers had applied was splitting at the curb and we found a couple of other spots that had loose laps.
We repaired the leak areas as required and photos are included below.

Edmonton Tar and Gravel Roof Repair

A prospective client north of Edmonton reached out to GRS to address a flat, gravel roof that was found to leak during the warmer period of this past winter. The water would drip into the unit and out of the ceiling in an approximately 6' x 8' area. They requested an estimator to come examine the roof and provide a quote for repair or replacement. Researching the building and gathering pertinent dimension information, GRS delivered estimates for a variety of roofing replacement systems in addition to what the expected repair would require. Client evaluated the options and believed the EPDM roof recovery to be their best option, rather than repair smaller portions of the roof. Appreciating the quote and evaluation, the client elected to put the project on hold for the time being. Contact Us Call our 24 hour emergency roof repair at 1.780.424.7663.

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.
