Our Commercial Roofing Division just completed an EPDM roof in North Alberta (between Edmonton and Fort McMurray). The crew took some pictures of the completed roof which we thought we would post. Many prospective flat roof purchasers, when considering a flat roof replacement, ask what an EPDM roof looks like. Our photos should be able to help.

EPDM Commercial Roofing Project in Edmonton, May 2011

Field Report, May 2 2011:

Commercial Roofing Project in Progress (EPDM)
Photo shows the crew installing the roof board (mechanically fastened) prior to EPDM being installed and the construction of the roof parapet wall (plywood sheathing).
We promised follow-up pictures of our Commercial Roofing Project on Jasper Avenue in Edmonton, Alberta to assist owners of commercial roof systems to visual the process of a commercial roof re-roofing process (more specifically an EPDM Commercial Roof Recovery System).

The photos in this post show today’s progress on the EPDM Commercial Flat Roof Recovery system.

Material Used:
  • The EPDM is a Carlisle EPDM (labelled under the Mulehide name).
  • The sheathing at the roof parapets is 3/8″ spruce.
  • The ISO board is a standard IKO 1″ ISO mechanically fastened.

 

Commercial Roofing - EPDM
ISO insulation is mechanically fastened prior to fully adhered EPDM installation.
The old Built-Up Roofing (BUR) system had the gravel removed, was skinned (ripped) to the fiber board, a 1″ ISO insulation board mechanically fastened, any wet insulation removed, and the commercial roof parapets had the metal removed as required. Sheathing installed to the parapets and along any roof penetrations, upstands, etc. as the EPDM cannot be adhered to the metal flashing around the skylights, or to anything with asphalt present.
For commercial re-roofing, this EPDM roof recovery system is used often and in many instances is an excellent alternative to a complete removal of a BUR roof system when doing a commercial re-roof. The idea of taking an old built-up tar and gravel roof completely out and throwing it in the landfill not only costs needless money, it is harmful to the environment, and a roof recovery has the same life-cycle as a complete commercial roof replacement.

Wednesday May 4, 2011: On Location at Edmonton, AB Commercial Re Roofing Project on Jasper Avenue. Commercial EPDM Roof Recovery System.


The photo above shows EPDM up the roof parapet walls, across the top of the parapet, terminating on the front side – giving the roof membrane a monolithic type seal. The metal cap flashing will be installed next and finish this Commercial Roof System in the coming days.

The commercial EPDM membrane installed at this site is a Carlisle EPDM Membrane labelled under the name Mulehide EPDM roof membrane.

The photo to the right shows the ISO flat roof board mechanically fastened prior to the installation of the fully adhered EPDM. The walls (parapet walls) were covered with plywood to comply with the EPDM manufacturer specifications (the parapet walls of this commercial roof are concrete). Prior to installation of the mechanically fastened ISO, the Built Up Roofing System was scraped of the gravel (Tar and Gravel Roofing) and the layers of Built Up Roofing were ripped or removed and disposed of.

The photo above shows the completed commercial EPDM membrane fully adhered to the ISO. The metal cap flashing will be placed next to both protect the parapets and also for curb appeal.

Firestone Roofing TPO/EPDM Hybrid

General Roofing Systems Canada provides TPO/EPDM roof replacement and recovery throughout Canada. Calgary, Red Deer, Edmonton, Fort McMurray, Lloydminster, Saskatoon, Regina, Medicine Hat, Lethbridge, Canmore, Banff, Cranbrook, Kelowna, Vancouver, Whistler, Winnipeg, Toronto and points between. British Columbia. Alberta. Saskatchewan. Manitoba. Ontario.

A Firestone press release from LAS VEGAS dated February 16, 2011, states:

At the 2011 International Roofing Expo, Firestone Building Products Company, LLC, is showcasing its UltraBlend Roofing System, a hybrid TPO/EPDM system that combines the strengths and benefits of two durable single-ply materials in one comprehensive, warrantable roofing system. To complement the UltraBlend system, Firestone’s full line of EcoWhite QuickSeam accessories – including flashings, pipe boots, penetration pockets and patches – can add to the ease and speed of installation.

Product Highlights:

  • Firestone is a roofing industry standard. It is a “single source roofing system provider” which creates a great platform for roofing contractors to serve clients.
  • The new single-ply system has an excellent warranty. The combination of the UltraPly TPO and the Rubbergard EPDM in a shingle roof system is innovative, comprehensive, and backed by a 20 year warranty.
  • The combination of UltraPly TPO for horizontal roof surfaces and either RubberGard EPDM or EcoWhite EPDM for vertical surfaces helps contractors save time and labour costs.
  • With the choice of 45 or 60 mil fully-adhered or mechanically attached UltraPly TPO membrane combined with either 60 mil black EPDM or highly reflective white EPDM, the UltraBlend System offers the option to use various combinations of accessories and flashings from both product lines.

Our Review:

Over the course of the year, we will be installing the new Firestone Roofing system and we will report on it. The hybrid system makes sense, and with Firestone’s history of roofing performance, we see no reason at this point to disqualify this system when considering commercial applications.

We encourage other roofing contractor comments as the system is being installed this season either by emailing us at info@grscanadainc.com or posting here on our blog.
