Flat Roof Ponding

Is It Acceptable to Have Ponding On My Flat Roof? By Allen Sensel Introduction There is a lot of speculation with older building designs and how their flat roofs have a tendency to collect pools of standing water referred to as ponding.

Ice & Water Shield: Why It’s Important For Your Home

Leak Barrier Membrane Let’s face it, Washington is rain prone which can eventually lead to ice dam build-up in the winter and early spring seasons among higher elevation neighborhoods. These homes will succumb to an inch or more snowfall more often than sea-level homes will. A key element in providing a functional roof system is what we call an ice & water shield. Here’s how it works. After a storm, ice can form along the eaves, skylights, chimneys, and roof vents of a house. This build-up counters the slope of the roof, catching water and debris. Ice & water shield membrane placed in a critical leak area offers weather-tight protection against the collected water, keeping
