GRS was contracted by this client to replaced their aging roof. Unfortunately, inclement weather dogged them at every turn, but the team persevered to get the roof installed as quickly as possible.
Table of Contents:
- 190 Sheets of FR Board
- 70 Rolls of 250 cap (grey)
- 10 Rolls of sopraflash flamstick
- 6 Rolls sopralap coverstrips
- 3 Pails elastocol stick
- 2,000 soprafix plates
The drains are also in need of replacement, and will be ordered once measurements are taken on-site.
Roof Report: May 30, 2014
The roof was 'a lake' at the start of the day, and we were unable to get the existing roof ripped off. The bulk of the day was spent pumping water off of the roof. The weather reports were calling for more thunderstorms, so by the time the standing water was removed, there wouldn't have been a point in attempting to begin the roof removal so the day was finished early.
Roof Report: May 31, 2014
We started ripping off the roof today and got a section 20' x 40' finished. There would have been more progress, but the team encountered rotten wood underneath that needed replacing. Again, weather reports called for thunderstorms in the late afternoon, which arrived at a perfect time. The ripped-off section of the flat roof was sealed up and the team was off the roof just as the sky opened up to deliver the storm.
Roof Report: June 1, 2015
We weren't willing to risk ripping more of the flat roof system today with more weather reports anticipating heavy rainfall, despite the sky looking relatively clear for the first portion of the day. Materials were moved onto the part of the roof already roofed-in, so the next section to rip is ready to go, with nothing in the way to hinder progress once it begins.
Roof Report: June 3, 2014
Today we were able to rip off a little bit more than 1,000 ft2
before the rain came in, leaving the job site around 65-70% completed. Stripping and the cover strips are on, and all of the laps are sealed.
Roof Report: June 4, 2015
Today's rain prevented significant progress, but a 25' x 25' section of the flat roof was ripped, covered, and sealed before the more-serious rainfall arrived around 4:00pm.
Roof Report: June 5, 2014
It rained for most of the day, and water was building up to hinder progress. The bulk of the day was spent pumping water off the flat roof as it rained, assisted by the team pushing water towards the pump with brooms.
Roof Report: June 6, 2015
The crew put in a long day with the weather's long-overdue cooperation. The remainder of the roof has been ripped and covered, with all of the drains and plumbing vents installed as well.
Roof Report: June 7, 2014
We finished the 180 patch for all of the plumbing vents before the rain managed to roll in for about 1:00pm.
Roof Report: June 17, 2014
Today, we managed to get all of the gooseneck vents installed before the rain set in. It didn't rain too long or hard, so we were able to stay on site to make sure that everything was done for the day. There were 13 goosenecks to install, in addition to time-consuming detail work.
Now, the roof is completely sealed around every penetration and we're ready to finish the cap sheeting. All-in there are 24 penetrations through the roof; 13 goosenecks, 9 plumbing vents, and 2 drains. There are also three existing curbs (dryer vent, gas vent, and the roof hatch).
Service Follow-Up: June 19, 2014
The team returned to the job site after a heavy rainfall to examine water flow and drainage, take photos, and check the seals. Everything looks good, so the job site is now complete.
