Let's go swimming on the roof? Flat roofs and the dangers.

There are many different ways to install flat roofs. Many are very good designs that will hold up to the test of mother nature and the riggers of the weather she throws at the roofs.

But when the sagging starts after years of use and repair after repair, then the problems begin to start and could become a dangerous situation.

On this inspection I had completed, I did get up on the home next door to get a better shot of the existing problems with this flat roof.

After a very good rain in which we have not seen for a while, there was a lot and I mean a lot of standing water on this roof.

Enough to go swimming? perhaps. But enough to be concerned about the structural integrity of the roof and stress on the sub structure as well.

Water very deep on flat roof.

The ponding of water on this roof was very bad. Only time before there are multiple leaks.

More ponding of water on roof.

See how deep the water is on the rear of the home. Not a good thing. I wonder if the owners ever watched T.V via the satellite dish? LOL

Remember to have a qualified roofing expert look at your flat roof and make the proper repair's if needed.

Have a great day everyone.
