> Why Does My Roof Leak Long After The Rain Ends?

When it rains, a ponding area on your roof will fill with water. When the rain stops the pond either evaporates or drips into the building after a leak develops. The water that has accumulated on the roof will continue to drip into your building until is is gone or the penetration is above the water line. Ponding areas will develop leaks, and those leaks are very much like a funnel pointed directly at the interior of your structure.
