Our team arrived on location in response to an emergency call for a Torch On flat roof with ice and water build up. There was a few inches worth of ice with up to six inches of water buildup underneath. They broke apart the ice, but found the scupper drains to be frozen up (causing water backup and subsequent freezing). Needing a water pump to dispose of the flooding, they put in a requisition one and had to wait some time for one to become available. Returning to the site a few hours later, they successfully pumped the water off of the roofing, and turned to inspect the scupper drain. Inside had frozen up, and it could not be cleared without causing more immediate damage. With the roof drained and ice removed, there was little else to be done for the time.

Water Drip and Drainage Support The client reached out to us regarding a four-storey apartment building. They were having trouble with water backtracking behind the gutter and leaking on the ground to cause ice build-up. The first proposed fix was to install a drip edge under the shingle edge and down into the gutter. Furthermore, the joints of the gutters were leaking as well, and the liquid rubber process was explained to the client, who liked the idea of sealing the joints in with seam tape and the rubber solution. There was another section of shingles over the entryway (10 ft x 6 ft) that needed to be replaced. While everything else was being handled, it was requested that an extension be placed into one of the drain spouts. Material:
- 280 feet of 4x3 inch drip edge (custom bent).
- Roofing nails.
- 1 down-pipe extension.
- 1 to 2 pails of brush grade liquid rubber.
- 3 – 4 rolls of 4 inch seam tape.
- 2 bundle of shingles over entrance.
