roofs also have a bad rep­u­ta­tion, but for leaks rather than fires. They’re prone to them be­cause they should have a gra­di­ent, but the gra­di­ent of­ten isn’t steep enough.

If the roof is too flat or doesn’t have an ad­e­quate struc­ture or ma­te­ri­als un­der the roof cov­er­ing, it will sag, al­low­ing rain­wa­ter to pool and even­tu­ally en­ter the room be­low. The roof cov­er­ing can also get dam­aged, so it’s some­thing to keep an eye on.
