How to Inspect an Attic

February 16th, 2013 · No Comments


How can you tell you have a roof leak?  Well there is the obvious water coming down through the ceiling.  Unfortunately you can have a leak for a long time before you ever see a drop of water.  So how exactly do you know you have a leak or what do you look for?  Wel inspect your attic regularly paying particular attention to flashing around around chimneys and vents.  Also pay close attention valleys.  Obviously look for water but many times it just shows up as dark stains like you see in the pictures.
