Many rooftops are flat surfaced which causes water clogging in some areas of the roof. Due to this many rooftops are not rated and warranted for water ponding and therefore the roofs tops may fail prematurely when exposed to water standing for a long period.

Few of the manufacturers will guarantee their products which includes water ponding.  The other disadvantage that you may face is the delicacy of the product.

Thought these rooftops are long lasting but still there is some maintenance which needs to be done. After every 20 years, the materials will have to be replaced and restored again to gain its longevity again. To prevent these more workforces are required because of regular checks.

  1. I like that you mentioned that proper roof restoration can prevent any kind of leaks for a long time. There is a section of my roof that has been leaking a small amount of water for a while now. I wanted to have that repaired, but it might be better for me to just have the whole roof restored.
