Puddles Forming on Flat Roof Garage After Rain

Postby Merchanto87 » Fri Jun 07, 2019 11:28 am

Hello everyone , this is my first post and I just need some general advice/ guidance with my garage roof. So I have a flat garage roof and when it rains puddles form on the top of the gravel. Can this cause any problems and if so what can I do to prevent the garage from leaking or collapsing? Inside the garage the beams have dipped abit and some repair has been done on a leak previous. Should the rain be forming like that on the roof or is it not really a problem. .

This issue is called ponding. Are your gutters and your roof free of debris?

I second that comment about making sure your gutters and downspouts are free from debris. You may need to flush them out. If needed, I recommend a 315 degree gutter cleaning attachment after you inspect the system.
