This residential client in Edmonton required an initial roof inspection followed by subsequent roof replacement. The report outlines the progress undertaken by the GRS crew and includes photos.
Inspection, August 1, 2011:
I met the client at his house and he told me about the leaking and ice damming problems he has been having. His soffits are currently stucco which is something that is not often seen. It appears that there is only mesh across the soffits holding the stucco so there would not be enough support to cut in soffit vents which can be used on wood soffits.
I suggested removing the stucco soffit on the eaves and installing aluminum soffit and fascia to get the air flowing through the eaves as well as adding additional ventilation to the roof. He has a neat cedar design on the gable fascia’ and would prefer to keep them as they are.
We also determined that the roof is due for replacement and he would like some options other than the cedar shingles which are on the roof now. The main house is 6/12 pitch with some 12/12 dormers and gable extensions and there is a low slope section on the back which will require 100% ice & water shield as per low slope application.
Material Required: note 9 sq. of this project is 12/12 pitch.
Roof Report, August 27, 2011:
- 50' Valley metal (brown).
- 6 air vents (to be cut in).
- (1) 4” plumbing flashing.
- 100' facia (dark brown).
- 5 vented soffits (dark brown).
- 110' soffit J (dark brown).
We got to the job site this morning and started roofing the garage while I had the crew start ripping the old rood from the house. The garage is done, and we have the house water proofed and ready for tomorrow.
Roof Report, August 29, 2011:
We showed up in the morning and started ripping the low slope, then I found a couple step flashings too short. The valley is double layered but we got it removed and water proofed for the next day.
Roof Report, August 30, 2011:
Today I went to the site and started roofing while also helping the crew clean up some garbage in the morning. The bin guy couldn’t make it back today so I didn’t get as much garbage removed as I would have liked.
I got most of the back of the house done but I had to use the old led plumbing boot as the one I got was an inch too small.
Roof Report, September 1, 2011:
I removed the old roof from the front side of the house (the steep dormer and the top roof). I found two squirrel holes under the valley and in the fascia. I covered them with step and no squirrels are getting in now. Were all ready to go tomorrow weather permitting.
Roof Report, September 5, 2011:
We went there Friday hoping to get the job done, in the morning I started ripping the steep parts with the crew.
Rain hit at around one o clock or so but it only lasted for about a half hour. We got back to work and pushed as hard as we could. This site is now complete.
