1. Water marks on ceiling

Causes of Roof Leakage
Roof leakages are common in Singapore due to constant change in weather. It is especially hot during midday when the sun is scorching. But when it is past midnight, temperature starts to drop by 4-5 degrees Celsius. The problem is this, your roof tiles and metal roofing sheets expand dramatically during the midday sun and contract during midnight when temperature falls. Over time, these roof tiles and metal roofing sheets get damaged and crack. When there is presence of cracks and water, water leakage will occur.
