What do you suggest the best way to level a flat roof that has standing water without making it a pitch roof?

Re: Level

Pitched insulation would be the easiest method. http://www.bradcotapered.com/

The best, and most expensive, would be to rebuild the roof structure.

We have done both, it all depends on the budget really.
