Water coming in - Flat roof?

In a bathroom on my second floor above the tub there is a roofed area, and the rest is inside, under the attic. I am getting water coming in through my celing. When I looked at the roofed part the roof seems really flat and is shingled. This seems like the problem to me. Anyone agree or think it may be another problem, if so what would be some good permanent solutions. I wam thinking of trying to put a sloped roof on, but never did something like that before. thanks

When you say "really flat" do you meen less than a 4 pitch? If so this surley could be the problem. You would want to use a rolled roofing , salvage edge, or rubber membrane roofing.

If these leeks havn't always been a problem and you have easy access to the roof I would first look for other causes .. Lifted, missing or damaged shingles / Nail heads / lifted flashing
