    Default flashing on flat roof

    I have a flat roof. How to repair
    flashing around a flat roof that has seams and is allowing water to drip on bricks. Should this be a concern.

    Seal it with some tar.

    I don't have a clear image of what the issue is. Can you post a picture.

    I received this picture. I am guessing it goes with this thread.

    Were this photos taken after a rainstorm? Did the water dry out later?

    The flashing is most likely drip edge and in a rain storm some water will wet the walls.

    Yes the pictures were taken after rainstorm and it does dry out but there is a stain there and more water marks are coming up where there wasn't before or they are getting larger. How to fix the problem. Is there an easy fix?
    Thanks

    If your flashing is indeed drip edge (with bent edge for water deflection) try bending it a tiny more above the wet spots, to create more deflection.

    And if your flashing is not bent, add a drip edge.

    Lightly use tar/sealant where pieces of flashings meet and overlap, but don't make it so visible. Then paint it when dry.
