Don't let your roof pond

Flat roofs notoriously love to leak due to inadequate drainage, and this only becomes more apparent as your roof gets older. Heat, wind, or storms may have caused irreversible damage to the original seams and screws, widening the path to further deterioration and leakage.

Flat roofs may develop a problem called ponding that doesn’t occur on sloped roofs. Ponding is when water collects in puddles on the roof instead of draining off in a timely manner. Homeowners may think this small amount of water is harmless, but ponding tends to get worse over time and can have a negative impact on the roof and your whole home.

Even a little pond can leave a lot of damage. As you can see in the photo attached - The top photos displays the small ponding area and the bottom shows the drywall damage that was impacted by the leak. 

Call us right away if you experience this issue - We have a team that can help and referrals that are available that can help fix the leak so it never happens again.
