I have water leakage in my home. From the stain I see it is coming through the second floor wall and seeping through the first floor ceiling. I have four professional roofing contractors over, no one can figure out the location of the leakage. It is only happens when rains. So I rule out the plumbing issue. Any advice, any one? I live in Acworth; referral to any good roofing guy would a real help too.

Have you tried getting someone to hose water on the roof while you look in the attic?

have you tried Findlay? https://www.findlayroofing.com they;re pretty good and will guarantee their work.

Is it anywhere near a chimney? bad fitting or damaged chimney caps are notorious for causing mystery leaks and many roofers ignore them and instead focus on flashing, etc. I went through 4 roofers myself, including Findlay (they are good but not perfect) and in the end, it ended up being the Chimney cap that was a little too small and basically smashed into place leaving a small gap that leaked during heavy rain.

I don’t have a chimney. But suspecting dryer vent pipe, which I don’t have access through the attic to check the vent pipe.

You might need someone with a snake camera to see if they can find it. Your dryer vents to the roof?

I was just going to mention a vent pipe. This sounds eerily similar to what happened at my previous house. It turned out to be a vent pipe.

The four contractors who came, checked all the vent pipes, one guy even used the sprinkler hose still no luck finding the leak. But as soon as the rain starts, water comes down. It is extremely frustrating. Just left a message for Findlay, hope they can help.
