It is hard to have peace of mind when your roof is leaking. What are you supposed to do? Who are you supposed to call? How much will this cost? These are all the thoughts that are likely running through your head. However, there is no need to a problem. First, call your trusted local roofers. Next, see if you can spot the problem outside once you have a bucket catching the water inside.
In this video, you will learn what to look for.
Take a look at the area where the roofing meets other areas of your house such as the chimney or the siding. These areas are known as step flashing. They are common trouble spots where leaks tend to originate. If you see any cracks or missing material, this is likely your problem.
You may also notice an issue with the shingles themselves. It could be as obvious as a branch sticking straight into the roof or as simple as a shingle that is missing. Shingles are another common source of leaks. Just like anything else, they can be damaged over time. An animal may even create a hole in the shingles.
