Wow. This thing is going legal and someone is going to have to pay big time. That is what I was thinking when I discovered the reason for a roof top leak which caused serious damage to a newly renovated strata lot in Vancouver. The interior coverings, drywall and floorings were just the beginning of what we could see was damaged. The probable cause? A “Rainscreen” contractor going beyond the boundaries of his experience. A worker, who was replacing fascia board, probably cut the torch-on membrane on the other side of the fascia board too low and too close to the roof level and opened up a void that was soon to be an entrance point for a lot of rain water. Hind sight is always 20-20 but why didn’t they at least consult with a roofer when this undesired action occurred and determine how best to remedy it. Unfortunately, someone chose not too and undertook waterproofing actions on their own. Big mistake. Clearly the company is poorly managed. Where was the site superintendent or Manager’s final inspection. I have a feeling it’s going to be in excess of $80K by the time it’s all done. All because a short cut was taken. Wow. This thing is going legal and someone is going to have to pay big time.
