I live in old stucco type to house. Inside in one bedroom the ceiling is leaking through. I have flat roof , tar the roof. What would be best approach to repair the leaking roof in that particular bedroom that is leaking. would appreciate any suggestion.
I want to do myself
Your first problem is to locate where the leak is coming from.Even on a flat roof,water can travel a great distance before showing up indoors.The spots to pay particular attention to are any areas where an object goes through the roof such as a chimney,plumbing vent,exhaust fans,skylights,etc,etc.It is unlikely you will find a hole in the roof directly over the inside leak.Do a careful inspection,and don't rule out areas which may be slightly raised (ie;flashing)which may be under water during a heavy rain.Any areas you may question can be treated with a gob of roof patch.Have mineral spirits on hand as roof patching can easily turn messy.Best of luck!
