How to find a Roof leak

How to find a roof leak. As winter approaches, so does the risk of water entry on an older roof. As your shingle ages, the protective layer that repels water gets destroyed by the sun and allows water to soak through. Days of slow rain, or ice and snow build-up, provide the perfect scenario for leak. What do you do?
During a rain, check in your attic for water dripping or wet insulation
As ice or snow on your roof starts to melt, check your attic again for leaks
If a leak is found, catch the water in a bucket or pan until a professional can make the repair
Remember, if your roof is leaking, it is doing damage that can lead to rotten wood, ruined insulation, ruined drywall, and more. Often insurance companies look at the age of your roof to determine if you were neglectful in caring for your home. If they determine the damage was due to neglect, they may not pay to repair the damages. Don’t take that chance!
