You might have A WA­TER LEAK IF...

Do It Yourself - - DIY Q&A -

1 You spot moss on the ex­te­rior of your home. Low-grow­ing green in key spots, such as near down­spouts or gut­ters, might in­di­cate that wa­ter is pool­ing where it should be drain­ing.

2 You see a wa­ter stain in­side on a ceil­ing or wall. Most peo­ple as­sume a leak equals a large, brown spot, but the signs could be sub­tler like a slight dis­col­oration in a corner.

3 You’ve got a drip. It’s ob­vi­ous, of course, but this may also mean an ice dam or jammed gut­ter, which could mean bad things that you’re un­aware of are hap­pen­ing be­hind the scenes!
