img74384 Major leak in the flat roof.
img74429 Ground view of the back of the flat roof.
img74430 Soffits at the back.
img74431 Bare wood showing where the soffit vents should be.
img74432 Full view of the right corner where the wood is showing.
img74441 Flat roof.
img74442 Chimney has no flashing around the base and the membrane is coming apart.
img74445 Crown around the top of the chimney is falling apart. (The chimney is on the neighbour's side)
img74449 Bricks and mortar are in good condition.
img74451 Keys on the shingles are far apart. The shingles need to be redone. The bathroom vent is not sealed properly.
img74453 Caulking is cracked around the plumbing stack.
img74520 Spike sticking out of the flat roof. Under the layer of material it's very uneven and there are multiple layers underneath. The wood has most likely rotten in the middle.
img74546 4 noticeable spikes (holes) in the flat roof.
img74562 3 pales of "leak stop" used but this is just a temporary solution - the flat roof needs to be redone entirely.
img74565 Filled nail hole with "leak stop".
img74570 No box or ridge vents on the roof at all. It needs 2 vents or ridge venting installed. There is also no underlayment or starter shingles at the bottom.
91 - IMG142228 Roof is soaked underneath the cap that was put on top. Could not see the full extent of the damage because it was accessed in the middle of winter.
92 - IMG142229 Tentis is all soaked, gravel underneath.
93 - IMG142232 Material was torched to the Tentis.
94 - IMG146923 Completely tarped sloped flat roof using cap nails.

96 - IMG146928
97 - IMG146929 The water rolled right off the tarp and no chance that it leaked.
98 - IMG146931 Karnaked the tarp and the cap sheet that the RS tucked it under 1 foot and then nailed it with cap nails. After that the RS pulled the tarp from all sides gradually nailing the tarp at all sides then once it was tight enough they folded the tarp along the bottom nice and tight again and nailed it with cap nails to the back cedar siding.

101 - IMG146958 Underneath the 2 layers we knew off was 1 more layer of tar & gravel and the first layer was shingles and Tentis.
102 - IMG146959 These nails were driven through every layer.
103 - IMG146960 Wood surface is plywood, it's a little wet in this area but it's drying out quick and no rot or damage.
104 - IMG146961
105 - IMG147029 Insulation batt is all wet and expired.
106 - IMG147030 Wood rot.
107 - IMG147031 Wood rot.
108 - IMG147035 All layers torn off and roof deck cleaned. Some wood rot.
109 - IMG147036 Base around front of chimney cleaned.
110 - IMG147037 This is the second flat roof that is separate from the back sloped roof.
111 - IMG147039 New insulation is needed now because it was all rotted in this area.
112 - IMG147156 Protector board on top of plywood to give nice smooth level surface.
113 - IMG147163 Metal flashing that separates the upper flat and the lower flat. 2 layers were joined from the upper roof and made into one roof but it is actually 2 roofs. The other layer of flat and 1 layer of shingles were not. These roofs were meant to be separate. Brick wall beyond all those layers and cap flashing.
114 - IMG147164 1 full sheet of plywood to replace plus insulation is being replaced in this area too.
115 - IMG147166 New fiberglass insulation. Replaced the existing wet fiberglass insulation.
116 - IMG147167 4x8 sheet of plywood removed and new insulation put where old and wet insulation was.
117 - IMG147168 Drilled holes under the soffits to allow air to enter through. Once the Client goes ahead with the ventilation for exhaust vents, this will allow air flow through the space.
118 - IMG147169 New sheet of plywood installed with screws.
119 - IMG147170 Staggering the protector board and instead of screwing them in or nailing with cap nails, using Karnak and it will glue the board right to the plywood.
120 - IMG147171 All new plywood screwed into the deck.
121 - IMG147174 Completed application of protector board.
122 - IMG162424 Cap application completed.
123 - IMG162426
