Why You Should Take Care of Roof Ponding Right Away

Here in Austin, many homes and businesses have flat roofs. There are many great reasons to have a flat roof. One of the more compelling reasons to have a flat roof is that they can serve as extra space to hang out or have a garden. However, a flat roof can become problematic if puddles are allowed to accumulate on it. To prevent serious damage, it is imperative to clear any puddles away immediately if your roof is flat.

If your flat roof is experiencing a ponding problem, an Austin roofing contractor at AAA Mustang roofing can figure out why water is gathering on your roof and repair it. We have decades of experience helping people repair and understand roofing issues, so contact us at 512-650-9866 to speak with an Austin roofer today.

Consequences of Ponding

Roof ponding is defined as puddles that stay on the roof longer than two days after the last rainfall. If your roof has standing water, you need to get it fixed as soon as possible. Allowing water to sit on your roof for too long can cause structural damage to your home.

As water pools on your roof, it weighs down the roof’s support. When the water’s weight becomes too much, the support beams develop slight bows. The bows in the support beams allow for more water to pool up, making the bows more noticeable and roof puddles larger. Eventually, the puddles can become large enough to cause the roof to collapse.

I first became acquainted with Zane Nixon, owner of AAA Mustang Roofing, when our metal roof was severely damaged in a hailstorm. Our house is large and has over 30 separate roof surfaces, with an equivalent number of edges and valleys. Zane and his crew completed the work in less than two weeks, and it is flawless. They even repaired several areas that suffered structural damages.

Just recently a flash flood on the day following hurricane Hermine caused significant damage to the first story of the house. I called Zane and he was here within 30 minutes and stayed until midnight. Using squeegees, towels and a shop vacuum, we managed to save the rugs and furniture. However, the walls required substantial repairs. Zane worked closely with our insurance adjuster, and the wall repair work under his guidance as contractor is every bit as professional as his previous work.

I recommend AAA Mustang without reservation for any type of construction or remodeling job.
