Five Signs You Have a Roof Leak

Roof Leak

by imcarolynlynch

The first thing you notice when your roof is having problems is a leak. It is noticeable and can be the first indication that something is wrong. It is very easy to pinpoint the leakage in the roof as there are spots of water on the ceiling. However, that is not the case every time. Leaks are not visible all the time and they appear quite late after some damage has been done to the roof. You do not want water damage to the interior of your property, so take a quick read at the potential signs of a leak!

Spots in the Interior

The brown stains on your roof or walls are clear signs that there is a leak somewhere in your roof. The stain is in the form of a spot or puddle on the ceiling or walls of your home. These stains are more prominent either on the center of the wall or in the open and you should watch them regularly so that you can act when it is needed.

Curling Roof Shingles

If you can see your roof, maybe the most obvious way to check if it’s leaking is to go up on the roof and look. We always recommend having a professional roofer look, but if it’s leaking, it must be entering your home. It is possible that a curled or cracked shingle is allowing water to leak into your building.

Wall Growths on the Exterior

Inspecting the exterior of your home may be another way to check for water damage. Mold, fungi, and moss-like damp conditions could mean you leak, if these are forming in places of your home that are not normal, you may leak.

Wet or Rusty Pipes

If you feel like you have noticed any rust marks on any of your pipes or feel they are wet when you touch them, there you might have a leakage problem. This can be fixed easily if you seal the pipe in the places from where it is leaking, or you can also change the pipes to avoid any other issues with the pipes in the future.


I am going to finish with an obvious one as well. This is what you typically see in movies when there is a roof leak. There are buckets strewn about to catch any drops of water that fall from the ceiling. If you notice that, you’ll want to call a professional roofer as soon as you get the chance to make sure that problem is stopped before it can worsen.
