Ponding Water Explained

You may have heard of ponding water but what exactly is it, and what does it mean for the condition of your commercial or industrial roofing system? The team at Just Leaks is here to help you understand exactly what ponding water is and how it can adversely affect your roofing system.

First, ponding water can be easily defined as water that remains on your roof for more than 48 hours. Due to rain, snow, or runoff, it can accumulate on your roof, and it can, unfortunately, result in negative consequences. Here are just a few of the negative consequences:

Ponding water can begin to wear on the structure of your roofing system.
Can result in physical damage to your roof’s membrane.
Algae and vegetation may even begin to grow.
Dirt, debris, and contamination can begin to collect.

All of these consequences compiled together can result in the deterioration and ultimate failure of your roofing system. And even the tiniest amount of moisture can begin to take a toll on your roofing system.

However, have no fear, the team at Just Leaks is here. If you are worried about ponding water on your roofing system, we encourage you to give us at (408) 249-4646. You can also set up a time for a free roofing estimate.
