Flat concrete roof


Where is the home located? Are you sure it is coming from the top down or is it coming from the bottom up?

Flat concrete roof


Two things wrong, it's a flat roof, and it's concrete.
With any flat roof it's not a matter of will it leak it's when will it leak.
Did you get a home inspection before buying this?
Call some commecial roofing companys they can lay a one piece rubber membrane EPDM down and stop all the leaks.

What about a neoprene rubber lining? That should work

And this is not a DIY job if you do not want it to leak, your not going to have the tools or the know how.
