How many roofs have you seen like this? Hundreds? Thousands? From newly installed roof systems with small unexpected birdbaths, to the old building that has settled in all the wrong places (just like us as we age), water is always going to find new friends in low places. Ponding water is one of the most common roof problems building owners face – and for good reason. Water left over time corrodes the roof membrane and causes leaks, structural damage, and safety issues like slip hazards, insect problems and mold.
The National Roofing Contractors Association considers ponding water unacceptable and suggests that no standing water remain on a roof longer than 48 hours. For most insurance carriers it is also a problem. When you ignore water ponding areas, you risk compromising the roof structure, the contents inside the building, and your roof warranty. This issue is not something that can just be swept under the rug. It needs to be swept off the roof. So what do you do when the fish run out and you need to get rid of this pond?
Re-roofs or tapered insulation can be expensive and may be overkill. A quick and easy alternative is to use a filler product. If you can establish there is no immediate structural damage that requires a reroof, filler products can be a very effective and economical option.
