Locating the Source of a Roof Leak

tools A roof leaking water, no matter the size of the leak, is a major concern for any property owner. Most leaks become noticed only after they drip from the ceiling or down the walls, meaning water has already compromised the roof material, its underlayment, the plywood, and your attic or roof insulation. It is important to act as quickly as possible to avoid any further damage to your roof or your building. To help you get started, we offer a few tips on locating the source of a roof leak. 

If your property has an attic, locating a leak may prove easier. Examine the leak from inside the attic, then start examining the roof directly above the leak. Work your way uphill from there, and remember that water can slide to the right and left of its point of entry. If you don’t have an attic, locating a leak may prove more difficult, but this method is a great place to start. Be on the lookout for mold, rotten material, or discoloration, especially near interruptions around chimneys, vents, and other structures.
