There may be some telltale signs that a roof is leaking if there are shingles missing or a visible hole in the roof. The best way to unequivocally detect roof leak is with thermal imaging. Thermal imaging uses infrared cameras to identify where water if penetrating a roof. The cameras detect water and moisture through thermal patterns.
How Can Roof Leaks be Prevented?
A good way to prevent roof leaks is through periodic inspection and maintenance. Flat roofs are particularly susceptible to leaking.
