Your roof could be leaking right now, causing hundreds, or even thousands of dollars of damage, and you don’t even know it. In fact, many more problems are only discovered after they reached an advanced age – after leakage has dramatically damage the roof, the insulation, as support beams.
Roofs can leak for years before you see the evidence.
Most often, homeowners only pay attention to their roots if there is water leaking in a house, and a notice brown stains on their ceiling, or if there is crack paint or peeling wallpaper- all obvious signs of leaks. But Bruce can leak up to 2 to 4 years before you see the evidence on the inside of the house.

Another telltale sign is shingle granules in your gutters which indicates advance where.
