We decided to repair our ceiling because every time rain fall the rain keeps falling also inside the house.

Try fixing the roof before bothering with the ceiling.

RE: leaking ceiling

Not much point in fixing the ceiling if your work is going to be ruined the next time it rains. Fix the roof first.

RE: leaking ceiling

Some folks in the small town near our build have had tarps on their house ever since we've been going up there, quite a few years now. I guess when times were good, you would see new tarps which probably felt like a new roof to them. Last time up we noticed they finally got a new roof no doubt ending endless ceiling repairs. Feeling good for those folks...get your roof fixed!

RE: leaking ceiling

Thanks for the advice highly appreciated!

Actually it costs us so much in fixing the roof and nothing happened. I think the design in installing our roof and water pipes has a conflict. So we have to remove the entire roof to see what was really the cause of these endless leaks in our ceiling.


RE: leaking ceiling

it would be worthwhile to hire someone to identify the leakage sites.
pipe penetrations thru the roof requires a boot.
often times the boot has worn out. this is a very
affordable repair.

best of luck.

RE: leaking ceiling

I have asked someone who has skills in solving this problem and I'm studying the cost of repair and materials.
