Roof leaks can present lots of challenges for homeowners. A leaky roof never occurs when it's convenient and this can often lead to significant damage to the interior of your home. In addition, the effects of the leak can often linger after the repair has been made in the form of mold growth.
Sometimes, determining the source of the roof leak can be an even greater challenge because more often than not, the source of the leak showing inside of the home rarely matches where the leak is coming from on the actual roof. This leads to a good deal of frustration for the homeowner who is attempting to repair the leak themselves.
Locating the source of a roof leak often requires a process of elimination. A leaky roof may have several contributing factors that may not always be the direct result of one specific problem. Talk about a headache!
The best way to catch a leak is it catch it as it occurs. This will help trace it back to it's source if it's active. If you are relying on a stained ceiling, the stain itself may not reveal the actual source or the entire story behind the leak.
