Roof problems can have serious consequences and should be addressed by professional repair technicians as soon as possible.

Water can leak through one spot in your roof and travel 20 feet or more away from the original leak in the roof before showing evidence. This characteristic makes spotting the true cause and extent of a leak difficult for the inexperienced. Choosing the right inspector for your roof leak or water penetration problem is essential.

A Small Stain Can Indicate a Much Bigger Problem
You could easily have a leaky roof and not know about it. Leaks are very tricky because they follow the path of gravity. Water can travel halfway down a roof rafter, bump into a knot and start to drip onto the attic floor insulation. Most homes built in the last decade are well equipped with plenty of insulation in the attic, making the problem harder to detect.
Some leaks only occur when there is a heavy rain blowing, which may also depend on the direction of the storm. If it is just raining straight down, the roof will not leak. This kind of leak could have been occurring for months before you would find a stain on your ceiling. Throughout the year you might only have two or three heavy blowing rains that leak in, and they may occur months apart.
Each time it leaks, it drips onto the insulation and then dries out, which wears down the insulation in the same spot little by little until it finally leaks all the way through. It then creates a stain in the ceiling. From there if it goes unnoticed for a long period of time until it starts to drip.
This scenario illustrates why you should never ignore warning signs of a leak or water damage. One small drip or stain could indicate months’ worth of structural damage or mold growth.
