Ceiling Leaks

Cincinnati Ceiling Leak Repair

Leaks of any kind can be serious cause for a “homeowner headache,” but leaks in your ceiling are particularly ugly and annoying. Most property owners have to deal with ceiling leaks at some point and placing a bucket under the drip is obviously not a lasting solution. And besides being annoying, a ceiling leak can be cause for serious concern.

That warranty is provide homeowners with some peace-of-mind with their ceiling leak repair because if it keeps leaking, we’ll come out and fix it.

How to Spot a Ceiling Leak

Leaks are one of the most insidious types of problems a home can have, partly because they can have caused some serious damage before that damage becomes obvious. We here at ProMaster Home Repair couldn’t tell you how many times we’re called out for a “small” ceiling leak repair in Cincinnati only to discover that

The most common indication that you’re going to need a ceiling leak repair is discolored and browning spots on the ceiling itself. Sometimes you can even discern where the water is pooling or which direction it’s flowing from the pattern of the stain. Homeowners are often surprised to hear that water can travel pretty far before settling somewhere and making itself known.

Lookout for bubbling paint or wetness that are also common indicators of a ceiling leak. Contrary to what many Cincinnati homeowner believe, these spots and stains don’t necessarily have to be near one another; two spots on opposite sides of a room can be caused by the same root problem. This is why experience and knowledge are so important in ceiling leak repairs, because it’s necessary to exhaust all the possibilities, even the ones not commonly considered.


These indicators can look different depending on the type of ceiling and what kind of material was used making it. A ceiling leak on plaster, for instance, can cause something called “efflorescence” that creates a fluffy, crystalline substance that’s crunchy to the touch. It’s caused by water getting into or behind the plaster and evaporating, leaving the salt deposits behind. These can be simply brushed off but are likely to return if not dealt with properly, often with a salt neutralizing product.

Common Causes of Ceiling Leaks

We weren’t kidding when we said ceiling leaks repairs are hard to diagnose. There are a range of possible reasons there is water in your ceiling, and the real cause doesn’t always make itself obvious. Here are just some of the most common leaks that often lead to water getting onto your ceiling. If you have a two-story home with a bathroom upstairs, you may already have run into some of these issues:
