Ponding Water on Roof

If a leak occurs due to ponding water on the roof, don’t blame the water – blame the roof. A quality roof completely seals out water. When properly maintained, it will stay sealed and won’t leak. When a roof is built, it’s designed to prevent water from ponding, even flat roofs have a slight slope to them. The guidelines state a minimum of ¼” per foot. The roof should be sloped in a way that guides water towards the drains. As long as the drains are clear, the water won’t pond. Otherwise, a drain that has been clogged for too long will cause a lot of ponding water on the roof.
