Owning a home or building with a low sloped roof can be very problematic for many real-estate investors. Locating a roof leak on a flat roof can be a big challenge because the water can stream underneath the roofing membrane a long ways before finding an area to enter the structure.

Because of ponding water a flat roof can wear much faster than steep sloped roof.
