Water under a flat roof.


There is a rubber over fiber board over asphalt on wood roof with about a zero R value insulation at Savage. Currently, there is water building up every winter under the rubber. My question is; will this damage the roof, and if so how badly. The roof has not leaked anywhere in the plant yet, but is this an impending disaster? The roof cuts that were saturated were taken in august so the water is there all summer.

The fiber board will turn to mush.There will always be trapped moisture,which in turn creates a variety of problems,rot,mold,bugs,etc...
