We found ourselves out in Wyoming Ontario at Huron Web, a local print and graphics shop on one of the hottest days for 2012. The client was experiencing some leaks in two sections of the roof, and they wanted us to come up with some cost effective methods of identifying the source of the leaks, and a way to fix it.
We did some investigating on how to find the roof leak, and found two sections that needed repair:
1. There was a corner section of the roof with pea gravel on it. We removed the stone, vacuumed it clean to remove any debris, and put down new sopaboard to give them another 5-7 years of trouble free use of their roof
2. The second section was much larger and much more challenging, as we had to remove the air conditioning unit from the roof (we were fortunate that it was only sitting on a patio stone and insulation), we had to remove the old metal flashing and some security lights which would need to be put back by an electrician. Because there were no issues with the pea gravel in this area we were able to put sopaboard and cap sheet right over the top of the gravel.
For both sections we removed the old metal flashing and numbered it so that we could reuse it. It would save the client money, and ensure that some sections wouldn’t have new and old flashing and look strange from the street view.
We saved the client a great deal of money and gave them extra life for their roof.
