Below is an article describing the troubles that can arise with any and all roofing situations should you have with work completed improperly.
We know that every trade has its problems. Poor installations, normal deficiencies that occur, and then unprofessional workers. Unfortunately, the flat roofing trade is no exception to such occurrences.
The new home in this flat roof inspection report completed by our roofers yesterday is a victim of the exact problems mentioned above. The home in the below pictures is quite new and  was architecturally designed. However, the roof was installed poorly (2 Ply SBS Modified Bitumen) resulting in leakage. We suspect this flat roof has been leaking every time it rains or snows since it was first built.
As a result of this poor installation, the homeowners will now have to face extra costs in order to replace it all together.

Initial Inquiry:

We are looking for a replacement quote. needs repairs for torch on flat roof, client requires  the roof replacement completed within 2 weeks. Highest section of house is leaking and flat roof installed incorrectly.  Flat roof seams aren’t sealed.

Field Report, July 27 2011:

The upper smaller flat roof (SBS Modified Bitumen) on this home is completely past the point of return and a roof replacement is required . All the roof membrane seams are lifting and there is no bleed out at the membrane seams. All termination points along perimeter of the flat roof are not torched down properly. All intersections are lifting and there is no slope of roof toward scuppers. The upper roof needs to be replaced completely and should be ripped down to the deck.  It also requires a cricket (slope towards roof scuppers).

The Lower canopy roof (Modified SBS Torch On) over the main entrance of the home is in the same state as the top roof.  The roof is not torched properly, it also slopes down toward house instead of away from.  There is only one roof scupper at the high point of the roof corner which is not draining. The drainage on this roof system is very poor. The lower roof needs another scupper and or a drain in the North corner, this also needs to slope away from the house. I recommend another rip and a full roof replacement to this section also. In order to replace the roof systems we will need to take all cap and detail metal off  as it is tied into the stucco!
