Many of our customers are of course regular repeat customers that have over time come to trust the expertise of our journeymen roofers. This particular customer is no different. The manager for this property owner originally called us three or so years ago and since then we have likely worked on most or near all of their properties in the Edmonton area.
The reports below are for the original inspection of the roof and the repair work that the crews did on the condominium property. A front entry canopy required re-construction, there were scupper repairs, and some leaks around perimeter flashing on the built-up tar and gravel roof.

April 29, 2015: Roof Repair Crew Attends for First Day.
The following site is a condo building in Edmonton Alberta. We were sent here to complete three scopes of work. 1) Flat roof spot repairs around perimeter (remove flashing, repair, return flashing to roof). 2) Fix cracks on edge of scuppers to avoid future leaking scuppers. 3) Fix a canopy roof that was sagging on the front left side.
Scope # 1: Perimeter spot repairs on main tar and gravel flat roof.
We started the day with the toolbox meeting. Got set up on roof. The roofers started stripping metal flashing around the perimeter while I went and got supplies. We did two different scopes of work on the roof.
1st scope was patching around the perimeter of the cant flashing which consists of spraying down asphalt primer on area where patch is needed. Then putting one layer of mastic on top of the asphalt primer. We then put the green mesh on the layer of mastic. The next step in the process is to add one more layer of mastic on top of the green mesh and let it dry. Final is to re-install the roof flashing.

The second scope of work we completed was to fix the scuppers as they had cracks around the edge of them and they were leaking. To do this we screwed each side of the scupper tight against the cant metal. We then put on one layer of mastic on the cracks. We then added the green mesh to the first layer of mastic. Followed by one more layer of mastic on top of the green mesh. This is an alternate method to using open-flame torching.
