Have you thought much about roof leaks? You could have a roof leak for years and not know it. Depending on how the wall or the ceiling is structured, it might not actually be dripping into a visible area of the room. The leak itself could actually be going into the walls down from there hitting the floor so if you ever saw water you might not even connect it with a roof leak. This could continue on for years.
It’s always recommended to have a roofer go look at your house to see if there are any roof leaks since they know what signs to look for but this is something you can do yourself if you prefer to save the money. To repair the roof first look for depressed spots of moisture on the roof. That is usually a dead giveaway where the leak is.
Another good idea to find a leak is to check in the attic right after it rains and see if there are wet spots in the attic. If you can find those wet areas you can backtrack it and see where the water is coming in from. Good thing about water is that it always flows downhill and it goes through anything.
Just a quick comment since not all things are obvious but if you feel that your roof is wet don’t climb it. I will also recommend that you avoid getting on the roof of a second-story since it’s just not safe. We always practice safety wherever we go.
