Leaking roof in living room! Need answers


I have a leak, and it is leaving a water stain on my living room ceiling. I plan on putting a tarp Right away, but if I use 1"x2" boards and nails. Wouldn’t those nails create more leaks? I need an answer quickly!


What type of roof do you have and what’s the weather like where you are at?


Shingle roof on a mobile home. It was raining but I think it’s stopped for the day .


You probably have multiple things sticking out of your roof, it’s probably one of those that is closest the the interior water damage.

A tarp won’t help much if it is a penetration leak.


I’ll look. Regardless I’ll plan to call a roofer to come check it out tomorrow or Tuesday.


Weight your tarp rather than fasten it…
