Over time, most homes experience incidental roof leaks that create brown spots on ceilings, but if the damage is persistent and severe, a roof replacement may cost less than constantly repairing the same problem. Leaking water can drain behind walls and under floors, literally ruining the entire house.
Before anything, you should get the wood underneath fixed. This will help you avoid structural problems later. Professionals always take some time to check the wood that is beneath the shingles before they repair or replace the roof. Using damaged wood will only shorten the life of the new shingles.
If you do decide to hire a professional roofer, the project is usually handled in a way which accommodates both the contractor and those living within the home. However, discuss completion dates with your contractor so everything can be planned accordingly.
All you need is to have one person in the attic with a bucket and torch while the other person climbs onto the roof with a water hose. The one inside the attic will have to check for leaking signs when the other hoses the roof. When the leak is located, you can try to fix it temporarily and then get a roofer to inspect and give a professional diagnosis.
