    Default Re: flat roof

    Howdy, no video but can instruct how to inpsect. What type of roofing membrane and is the question the roofing or the framing?
    If built up tar and gravel you first look for puddling if water sits on the roof longer then 24 hours the organic tar( asphalt) starts to break down. Then knowing the age of the roof helps to narrow down the search. average life is 20 to 25 years but this is greatly reduced any where that asphalt is exposed to sun light as the UV oxidizes the asphalt and it simply wears away. Hope this brief introduction helps. Also look for alligator cracking that is from age an wear and these separations can allow water leakage....
