Commercial flat roofing, while sleek and modern, comes with its own set of challenges, and ponding water is a chief concern. At Centennial Roofing, we understand the importance of addressing this issue promptly to ensure the longevity and effectiveness of your commercial flat roof.

Ponding water occurs when water accumulates on a flat roof, often due to inadequate drainage. Many roofing material manufacturers recommend eliminating ponding water within 24-48 hours to prevent potential damage to the roof structure and membrane. Installing tapered insulation beneath the flat roofing membrane is a proactive measure to combat ponding water. Tapered insulation creates a slope, directing water towards drains or scuppers, promoting efficient drainage and minimizing the risk of water accumulation.

Ponding water can exert undue stress on the roof structure, leading to premature deterioration. Tapered insulation helps prevent this by channeling water away from vulnerable areas. Standing water can compromise the integrity of roofing materials, resulting in leaks and other issues. Tapered insulation safeguards the roofing membrane, contributing to the overall longevity of the roof. Many roofing material warranties specify that ponding water should be eliminated within a specific timeframe. Tapered insulation is a proactive measure that aligns with manufacturer recommendations, preserving your warranty coverage.

At Centennial Roofing, we prioritize the well-being of your commercial flat roof. Our expert team is well-versed in the installation of tapered insulation to address ponding water issues. Whether it’s a new installation or a retrofit, we tailor our solutions to meet the unique needs of your commercial property.
