GRLA initially conducted studies to source leaks of the 15,000 square foot EPDM roof membrane system.  After a program of limited roof insulation replacement, and infrared thermography monitoring, it was determined that the brick masonry parapet walls was the source of the leaks.  GRLA then investigated the Owner’s options, and due to budget and access constraints, GRLA proposed the option of over-cladding the parapets with an exterior insulation and finish system coupled with complete roof replacement.  In 2013, the project was completed and GRLA continues to monitor the roofs using infrared thermography.  To date, water penetration of the roof has not returned.
