Below were some of the roof repairs that were completed:

Roof Repair Inspection Report:

During our visual inspection of the roof we observed several issues that should be addressed to keep this roof system watertight. We found several defects, some larger than others, which could be allowing water into the roof system or building. After our removal and investigation into the metal coping detail, we observed that the waterproofing under the coping is a single ply of roofing felt. This roofing felt by itself is an impregnatable material and is not a waterproofing membrane.

The metal coping itself was not fabricated long enough on the inside of the canted edge parapet. This is not allowing the metal to cover enough of the base flashing and fasteners, leaving them exposed.
We also observed several small leak issues, from sealant failure to holes in details. We found that the scupper flashings have also come loose and may be allowing water into the wall system.

There were also several blisters found in the base flashings at the parapet and one in the roof field. This can be caused by an installation issue or moisture issue.

Tuckpointing & Block Repair 

After reviewing the inspection with the owners of the building we also inspected the building and found over 50 areas in need of tuck pointing and block repair. Once the roof repair was complete we began the tuck pointing and block repair. Our masonry team completed the necessary block repair and our sandblasting team came in to prep the building for a fresh paint job. 

To finish the exterior overhaul we had our painting crew come in and put a beautiful finish on the building, really giving the building a fresh new look. Take a peak at the pictures below and please give Randahl Construction, Inc. a call for a free roof or building inspection. 763-559-1009.
