The DCPS roofing team conducted an initial inspection. Multiple risks were identified, including missing shingles, excessive granule loss on the shingle, gutter damage, cracking and creaking of the substrate, exposed substrate and flashing, failing sealant around mechanical pipes, and missing mechanical pipe caps. Many of the areas of concern had the potential to become leak points. Therefore, the DCPS team addresses the emergency repairs during their onsite inspection due to an impending storm.
The existing failing 3 tab asphalt shingle roof system was replaced with a deep brown IR architectural shingle system. Approximately 608 sq. ft. of rotted plywood decking was changed, along with all mechanical flashing and piping, and old gutters.
To ensure minimal disruption to clients and patrons, the roof was installed in 1-day. Once the team gained access to the back side of the building, the gutter installation was completed in 2-days.
