Finding where a leak starts under your roof, with the roofing being closed and out of sight, is a challenge for most homeowners. Water causing the leak typically travels several feet from the source before it becomes apparent.
When drywall or paneling is on the ceiling, the water could go even further because of the material type. Many times leaks go unnoticed completely and moisture can degrade insulation and can give mold spores the food it needs to grow as can wood-rotting fungus.
With larger leaks, you typically see discoloration on the ceiling and water can even pool and saturate drywall causing a water bubble. If this happens, poke a hole with a pencil and let the water damage into a bucket until Bone Dry Roofing gets there.
