After returning home from a long, much needed vacation you open the door to your Auburn, New Hampshire home to unload your luggage. You then spread yourself out on the couch with a cool drink in hand. You take a swallow of the refreshing liquid and lift your head. That’s when you notice it; a large spot on your ceiling. Could it be that you have water damage on the ceiling? Where did it come from? Since you’ve been gone a while, it’s hard to tell whether the moisture intrusion came from a leaking plumbing line or from seepage in the roof. There’s a way to tell.

Repairing this problem, whether it’s caused by a broken pipe or heavy rain, is crucial to the condition of your home.
