How to Find a Leak in a Roof

Finding the real origin where the roof leaks is tough because water can enter the roof in one place and run down to an additional area before it starts saturating into the ceiling.
You know the roof is bad if shingles are absent or clearly damaged, or after water stains the ceiling or walls. The objective is to find the leak in advance before the entire roof goes bad.




Identifying the true location of roof leaks in the attic.
If you have an attic, the easiest way to spot the leak is to up there on a rainy day. Water will reflect light, so bring a flashlight along. Once you locate the source of the water, mark the area. On a nice day, have a helper tap on the mark while you’re on the roof. After you pinpoint the location on the exterior of the roof, apply roofing cement or new shingles as needed.
If you don't have an attic or just can't find the source of the leak, you can check several places for problems with moisture or damage:
·         Boots, the rubber seals that are around the electric service and plumbing vent pipes, air vents, and exhaust fan flashing.
·         Ridge cap
·         Flashing
·         Gaskets around pipes
·         Shingles
·         Gutters and downspouts
·         Dormer valleys
