First Things for Roof Leak Detection
Visit your loft. Take a powerful torch. Take your time and examine the whole length in sections. Any tiny hole may be responsible and hard to detect. You are looking for clues like discoloured wood beams.
Second Thing to Try
If examining your roof space under the roof doesn’t provide a result try pushing a small nail through the centre of the stain and into the roof space.
You May Have to Wait
You may have to wait for the rain. Then you can visit the loft and see if you can spot exactly where the water is coming in.
The Flat Roof
Flat roofs are probably more prone to leakage than sloped ones. This is simply because there is no slope for the rain to flow away easily and the accumulation of water will cause leaks. Call in a professional to conduct an infrared survey to detect any moisture problems.
Maintenance Works Wonders
Checking your roof for problems on a regular basis may prevent any unpleasant surprises later on. Look out for leaks, cracks and rot. and fix the problem as soon as you can.
