Ceilings leaks are a nightmare to many homeowners because it is not easy to identify the source of the problem. This is because the brown color on the ceiling is usually the last sign to show that there has been a water leak problem within the building. If you are living in flats or have toilets and bathrooms upstairs, you are likely to experience ceiling leaks. Especially if the toilets and bathrooms lack a good drainage system. If you find wet surfaces on your ceiling, you can contact Waterproof Singapore professionals for solutions.
How to tell that you are experiencing a Ceiling Leakage
The presence of wet stains on the ceilings. This might be a sign that the roof is leaking rain water which is finding its way to the ceiling. Some people consider applying a new paint to remove the brown color that appears on the ceiling after the water has dried. However, after a while, the discoloration will occur again because the problem was not solved. The following are types of ceiling stains that can easily show you that there is a ceiling leak in your house.
- Brown Stains in the Bathroom
This is a common sign for most homeowners in Singapore because it is caused by the presence of the exhaust fan. Moisture content is likely to be trapped in the fan which causes the brown color over time. Therefore, you will need specialists to check the exhaust fan and fix the problem. The main cause of this problem is the condensation of moisture and air which eventually leads to water molecules accumulation.
- Stains on the corners of the ceiling
Most plumbing pipes are usually joined at the corners of the house. They form the weakest point of the system because they are vulnerable to tear and wear, and extreme water pressure. When stains appear at the corners of the ceiling, it could be because of the plumbing system or ice dams. Due to the weather conditions in Singapore, an ice dam is not very common.
- Many Stains on the Ceiling
The roof stains can become more if the roof is leaking. Especially during the rainy season, the stains can become more because of the roof seepage.

- Stains around the Plumbing System
