Dear all, please see attached photo DSC_0803 [640x480].JPG

My questions:

1. Does this type of water ponding on a new modified bitumen roof OK? As the water seems to sit there for a while now, and the surface area with water start to turn rusty color (not sure why, maybe it was because of the aluminum coating?). If the water continue to sit there for a while, could that potentially create some bigger problem (this house is in San Francisco, and we have fog all year round - not too much sunshine here).

2. Usually how would a professional roofer handle/address this type of problem?

Thanks!!

what did your roofer say?

Is your customer complaining? Don't know California roofing -here the Illinois roofing council answers contractor questions and settles disputes.

As long as your seems are done right and everything is done right then you will never have a problem. However if the owner does not like it then there are some options that you can do. The cheapest option put a trench in it. The more expensive route. Tear off that part of the new roof and build it up to shed the water.

Usually water no like fog and these two combination very bad. If water is sitting that's Ok but you say rusty? that's not good. Maybe a landscape technician could have better ideas about ponds. Is it deep enough for gold fish? I am concerned about the lack of sun in your area. Can you sell and move to Michigan or Washington?
