My roof was replaced a year ago, due to hail, paid for by my insurance company and performed by a local contractor. This morning, in heavy rain, I see fresh water-tracks down a wall of my bathroom. I'm not sure who to call, or how to get all my ducks in a row prior to calling. [more inside]

Our house is a six year old flat roofed house in New Mexico. Every time it rains or snows, the roof leaks in several places. We've gone up there with tar and sealant about 5 times in 18 months. Sometimes we fix it, but not before another leak forms elsewhere.
We invited several membrane type roof vendors over for estimates and they range from $20K-$26K for a roof with a lifetime guarantee.
The membrane roofing seems like a good idea. Does anyone have experience or advice with finding a permanent solution to a leaking flat roof.

Sandy's dropped almost 3 inches here already. Our roof (over 22 yrs old, original, already had quotes to replace it in the past 2 weeks) decided to leak. So I'm looking for general knowledge/hints/tips on fixing things after a roof leak. [more inside]

There are ceiling-to-floor water streak marks in one of my bedrooms. Is this just condensation or could it be a roof or wall leak? [more inside]

Its midnight on Friday. My roof is leaking. Its supposed to rain all weekend. My house is 3 1/2 stories and the leaky part of the (gabled, Queen Anne-style) roof is not easily or safely accessible to without special equipment that I don't have. Assuming that I'm not going to be able to get anyone to fix this before Monday at the earliest
, is there anything I can do to to at least mitigate the damage? [more inside]
