Harry, a homeowner in Pennsylvania, asked:
Our parapet wall on the 3rd floor balcony is causing water infiltration on the 2nd floor bedroom ceiling directly underneath. We suspect either the TPO cover strip, membrane underlayment, or water barrier across the top of the parapet under the metal coping might be missing, have degraded or have unsealed holes and/or seams. We covered the top of the wall with plastic tarp as a temporary fix and this has stopped the leak. How do we approach the repair process and fix the leak? There is also a bulge under the TPO membrane on the balcony floor. Can the TPO bubble be repaired without a complete tear out/replacement? Do you have any referrals for professional roofers in my area?
