Avoiding Ponding Water

Understanding Ponding Water on Low-Slope Roofs

Impact of Ponding Water:

Ponding water on a low-slope roof poses a significant risk, leading to premature deterioration of roofing materials and potential structural damage due to the added weight. Addressing ponding water promptly is crucial as it often indicates areas susceptible to leaks.

Causes of Ponding Water:

Despite the initial design with a slight pitch for water drainage, the settling of the building over time can diminish the effectiveness of this slope, resulting in ponding water accumulation.

Persistent Roof Leaks:

Even after rainfall ceases, ponding areas on your roof retain water. This retained water either evaporates gradually or seeps into the building through developing leaks. Such leaks, originating from ponding areas, act as direct conduits for water intrusion into the interior of your structure.

Remedying Ponding Situations:

Each roof presents unique challenges, necessitating a tailored approach to address ponding issues effectively. Our team will conduct a thorough inspection of your roof to devise a customized plan aimed at preventing leaks and remedying the ponding situation.
