Why does a tapered material specified flat roof never leak?
Most roofers don’t understand
how much water can weigh after a hard rain and how the weight of the water pulls material apart. If you spend time to taper your flat roof to material company specifications, then water will exit before it weighs down on a roof. This means material will not separate or pull apart. For you, this means no leaks.
Another important installation of a flat roof is counter flashing on walls, building curbs to stop water from getting to pipes, skylights, AC units, etc. It’s called “diverting the water”. There should be no ponding water anywhere on a flat roof. If you have an area where all the water crashes into a pocket or a valley on a flat roof and it’s always leaked there for years, switch to an EPDM and that pocket area will use the same material that is used on coy ponds and waterfalls. If it’s flashed properly, it will not leak
