We just bought a house last month and this morning since it was raining we figured that water was leaking from the ceiling exhaust fan in the bathroom on the 2nd floor. Went to the attic and found that the exhuast pipe that goes out was wet. who should i call a plumber/roofer or is there something we should look for before calling anyine in.

When you say "the exhuast pipe that goes out", I assume you mean the pipe that goes out through the roof?
If that's the case, the leak is in the roof and you'll want a roofer, not a plumber.

Or perhaps your pipe leading to the roof has condensation from the humid air in the bathroom? Is there a lot of water or is it just drips? If its a lot, then you defiantly do need to get some professional help. Also turn off the fan then too!

I did not ook like condensed water the water came in only when it was raining. Since it hasnt rained this week there has been no water. But looks like I will need a roofer to look at it rather than a plumber

thanks for the help!
