Water Ponding The weight of water @ 1 cubic inch per sqft = 5.2 lb. This would mean that if it rained 1” of rain on a 6000 sqft building structure, (with poor or clogged drainage), the weight on this roof would be approx. 31,200 lbs(15.5 Tons ) This water Ponding will collect towards the lowest points and continue to warp the roof structure.
