Seminar 1: Roof Maintenance: From the Design Stage to the Service Life

Presenter: Ted Katsoris, B. Tech., Arch Sc. FCSC, CCCA, BSS / Morrison Hershfield

Roofs are facing increasingly challenging weather conditions that they may not have encountered in the past. Recent events, such as heavy rains and violent windstorms, have highlighted the vulnerability of roofs to extreme weather events. Considering these changing conditions, proper roof maintenance is crucial to ensure roofs can withstand the challenges they face. This session will focus on the importance of roof maintenance throughout the entire life cycle of a roof, starting from the critical design stage. By implementing effective maintenance practices, roofs can exceed their expected service life. The session will cover various diagnostic methods, including visual inspections and non-intrusive investigative techniques.

Seminar 2: Quality Control Measures During Roofing Process

Presenter: Michael Hensen, P. Eng., RRC / Rimkus

As a Building Owner, Facilities Manager, Property Manager, or Board Member you likely choose Contractors for projects ranging from interior renovations to façade repairs and roof replacements. Though you may have little to no construction knowledge, there is one simple question you should always ask a Contractor prior to selecting them for a project: “How do you ensure the roof gets installed correctly?”. Although this question may seem over simplified and obvious, it initiates an important discussion about a Contractor’s quality control process. Quality assurance, on the other hand is performed by the Owner or more often a design professional hired by an Owner such as an Architect or Engineer (A/E), as a planning and preventative measure to ensure that the Contractor’s work meets the design intent at the end of the project. As a forensic Consultant that does building envelope restoration and rehabilitation projects we will dive further into quality control and assurance measures to follow in our projects.

Seminar 3: The Challenges With Alterations / Refurbishment of Aged Roofs

Presenter: Jean-Guy Levaque, F-IIBEC, RRC, RRO, Arch. Technologist / Pretium Engineering

Imagine stumbling upon a remarkable building that serves as a living time capsule of roofing evolution since the 1970s! In this case study we look at this extraordinary example of roof life management, highlighting the various roof system types, the roof renewal processes that took place, and the positive and negative impact that decision-making processes have had on the performance of the building. Through this case study we will uncover the process of roof condition assessment information gathering, and analysis of the roof systems in place. Finally, we will outline the findings of tests completed and the steps that are now being carried out to address the long-term issues. Many commercial type buildings in Canada are just like our subject building, having long outlived their original intended service life and now needing extensive repairs, making the lessons it offers invaluable to consultants and owners alike.
