detecting leaks is not easy and

In reply to finding a leak in the roof by Dick on November 13th, 2002 12:13 PM [Go to top of thread]

may take many attempts.

Since its not penetrating the decking of the roof, this is even more difficult.

I would find the drip of the leak, then begin a on the knees inspection straight up the roof from this exiting leak. You might find that it leads to a stack of some sort, or a nail that has popped out and letting water in, or a shoddy roffing job where a throat of a shingle is exposing the previous course of shingles. I cannot imagine that this leak is very far up as it seems impossible for it to go around so many obstacles.

I would first look at these areas: valleys or flashing, stacks, popped nails, and visible holes.
