What Do You Mean, Have I Fixed The Roof?

Many times I go to a house and the customer wants me to fix water damage in some ceiling in the house. The first thing that I say to the customer is “Have you fixed the roof?” The response I often get is “What do you mean” . . . or “Why do you ask?”
Water damage on the upstairs ceiling or the ceiling of a one story house is generally caused by a roof leak.
First of all it is unusual for a house to have pipes in the attic and secondly if there are pipes in the attic it is unusual for them to be leaking.
This is also true with damage to the walls unless they are near a window, shower, sink or toilet.
What you need to do before calling me to fix a water damaged ceiling or wall is to note the history of the damage.
Does it only get worse when it is raining or has it just rained?
Does it only get worse when you use the shower upstairs?
Does it constantly get worse no matter what the weather is doing or how much you use the sink, shower or toilet?
The more I know about what the characteristics of the damage to the ceiling and/or walls are, the easier it will be for me to figure out what is causing the damage.
