9 September 2008
Dear Mr. Byrne,
I am writing this letter in response to the report of three water leaks at the Hamilton Avenue Modulars on September 8, 2008. Upon our arrival at 3pm on 9/8/08, we identified that the water infiltration was not extensive, however Classrooms 8, 11, and 21 did show evidence of minor water damage on ceiling tiles and a light fixture lens. Upon our investigation of the source of the leak with Silktown Roofing, it was our conclusion that the water had intruded through the intake hoods of HVAC rooftop units, which had some deteriorated gaskets, and traveled down into the ceiling. It was also noticed that there was a gap in an existing rubber boot where two rooftop unit wires penetrate the roof. This gap was caulked and sealed. The suggestion from Turner and Silktown was to replace the rooftop unit gaskets for proper seal to prevent future leaks during severe rain storms such as we experienced on 9/6/08. It was also suggested from Turner and Hygenix to remove and replace the damaged ceiling tiles. Hygenix was informed of the conditions and will be conducting their own survey on 9/9/08 and making recommendations regarding remediation procedures. .
