Look underneath.

As I said in my last post a quality inspector doing a roof inspection will want to have a look at the underside and framing. This is the first place that problems manifest themselves. If you are handling it yourself you are going to have to get up there and spend some time. The best time to accomplish this is Early in the morning when it is as cool as it's gonna get. If it's a rainy day that is even better because that is a good time to spot any obvious leaks. You'll want to dress for the occasion in long sleeves and trousers if you have fiberglass insulation. Now since you are going up, there are a few other things to accomplish and you might as well do them now. The attic is home to some key components of a homes mechanical systems and I'm not talking about the Christmas decorations.
