- If there is no attic access, go outside and look at the roof above the room with the spot.
- Look for any missing shingles, pipes, vents or other places that water could be entering such as a valley or roof to wall area. Using binoculars can be helpful. Do not get on the roof if your roof is more than 1 story or very steep. Call an insured roofing professional!
