When I noticed a wet spot on the living room ceiling, my first thought was that the house might need a complete roof replacement. Fearing the worst, I called a local roofer and then arranged for an inspection. Fortunately, the professional was able to come out later that same day. To my relief, the issue turned out to be minor. If you have noticed a leak in the attic or damage to ceiling tiles, don't panic. Call a roofer first. You'll quickly find out if the issue can be fixed or if the time has come for a new roof.
