INTENSIVE LEARNING CENTER
ILC Blister: The blisters has popped and a large split is allowing water to enter the roof system. Adhesion between the plies is now deteriorated and the damage is extending beyond the area.
Numerous blisters in the field of the ILC roof. All blisters expanding and increasing in size. Blsiters vulnerable to “pop” as shown above and allow even more water intake.
District has performed numerous repairs to date to prevent water intake as shown above. However, the roof has deteriorated beyond a point where maintenance is helpful. The roofs need replacement.
Blisters and repairs throughout the roof. Water infiltration common. Deck damage expected in the area.
CRAIG WILLIAMS ELEMENTARY
Large ponding water areas on the roof. Pooling water has broken down ply adhesion and caused blistering and damage.
Deck damage expected in area.
The material lacks proper tear and tensile strength. Consequently, the material has split and torn at the flashings.
Maintenance repairs are only short term solutions. The area split will continue to separate and allow more water intake.
Ply adhesion has separated. The cap sheet is vulnerable and with only minimal tear strength it will not provide much protection.
The coping cap on the roof has rusted and the joints are not sealed. The metal needs to be replaced with 22 gauge,
galvanized, ANSI SPRI ES1 compliant metal.
Building A flat section: Ponding water has caused numerous leaks. Numerous repairs to prevent water intake.
Google Earth photo of Building C to best show the damage to the existing roof. The reflective coating has worn away to reveal a black ply Not suited for sun and weather exposure. Large repairs throughout From leaks. Roof needs replacement.
