Interior

Access the inside of the Roof cavity through a manhole or another entry area with a torch will be the best way to search the area, if there is daylight showing through any part internally this is opening that will need to be attended to, to protect from water entering. Check for staining or running water marks this could be a sign of moisture building or leaks and after a period of time the water damage could cause sagging to the roofing areas. Sagging should be dealt with as soon as possible by contacting a reputable Roof specialist.

If you have noticed damage internally in the roof the results will definitely be on the outside of the roof structure. If there are signs of mould, moss or algae, moisture could be seeping into cracks and crevices. Signs of water marks and staining too will become apparent along with sagging if the water damage has gone too far. Have a look around garden beds and ground surfaces for any signs of broken materials that may have come off the roof.
