We have a leak in our living room. It actually started at the top of the window ceil. We though since the windows were old if we are replaced them it would fix it. It didn't. The paint was bubbling some on the ceiling and the rest down the wall next to the window. We see a crack and had someone take a look at the roof. He sealed a few spots but it still leaks. We have cleaned our gutters and nothing works. It only leaks if it rains bad. Since we scraped the paint away during a storm we could see the dampness come on the spot that we exposed but still don't know where its coming from. The house is over 50years old and the roof has 3 piles on it. Do we have to replace it? No other leaks to be found. Our bedroom is above the livingroom where the leak is occuring and nothing has happened in the bedroom. Help! I really want this fixed, its a reall "eye" soar!

You really need someone in your area come take a look at it,they give free estimates.
Call a few of them either a builder or a roofer make sure he is not just a handyman.
Sounds like the boards are going to be rotted now so you may need these replaced before doing anykind of repainting other wise your primer and paint will both fail.
