I have a project in which the existing flat rubber roof is leaking. The roof deck is surrounded by two building walls and two solid parapet walls. The walls are covered with painted vertical cedar siding. The roof drains thru three roof drains. There are two layers of rubber roofing installed and the roof began to leak after the roof decking and duck boards were removed. The second layer was installed over the first and adhered at the edges and drains, but it does not go up the walls. The first layer goes up the walls and the cedar was installed over it.Under the first layer of roofing is saturated tapered insulation. Uner the insulation I do not know. My client does not want to remove the cedar but wants the roof repaired. Does anyone have a suggestion on how the roof could be repaired without removing the cedar from the walls?
