How to Know if You Have a Roof Leak
A leak in your home’s roof may not be immediately evident. While most leaks do stem from the roof, with an attic overhead, finding a leak or its exact origin can be very difficult. Here’s an example… the water that’s dripping in through a crack or crevice may simply begin to grow mold in the attic, and you just won’t see it unless you go into the attic regularly.
Missing shingles are one of the most common causes of a roof leak, and that telltale sign is visible when looking at the roof from outside. You may also notice shingles on the ground after high winds.
Inside the home, a water stain is the most common sign you may spot of a roof leak. The water may appear as a damp spot on your ceiling, with a yellow or brownish color.
Along with noticeable water stains you will also want to look for other discolored areas that indicate green or black mold growth. These factors may also help determine where the leak originates from.
