If the roofing is getting pulled away from the built up sides, then it’s probably because the built up sides are not blocked properly, or the nails are not driven in far enough. The main thing is to make sure there is enough weight on the built up sides to keep the roofing in place.

I have a row home flat and the flat roof is pulling away from the side walls. These are all built up. The roof and sidewalls are made from plywood. The roof has a 2x6 top plate and it appears the roof is being pulled away from the walls by the nails that are holding the plywood together.

It is likely that your row house flat roof is sagging or pulling away from the built up sides. Built up sides are areas where the roof is built up with materials like brick, stone, or cement. Built up sides help provide a solid base to prevent water from seeping into the interior of the house.

If your row home flat roof is pulling away from the built up sides, you’ll want to make sure that it is secured properly. This will require removing the old shingles and any other debris, then applying new shingles.

It's not uncommon for a row home to have a flat roof, which looks great on the outside but can be a bit of a headache for the homeowners. Fixing a flat roof can be a big job, and it can be a bit of a nightmare to find someone you can trust to fix the problem.
