    Hey hey,

    I had a new felt put on my flat roof extension. Ply + insulation underneath deemed to be in good condition so those remained. Noticed after it rained a bit of pooling in 2 spots. Raised it with roofer and was told that generally you'll have some surface water on a flat roof and it's nothing major to worry about. I’ve attached a pic. Thoughts? Anything to worry about?

    Thanks!

    Like you were told by your roofer...nothing to worry about.

    Where is the 'pooling'? All I can see are a couple of wet patches. Bit of a drama queen methinks.

    Here's a close-up of the larger area. I have little to no roofing experience so wasn't sure if it was something to worry about or not. Here's a closer up shot of the large area. The puddle is about 10mm at its "deepest" level.
