The hardest part of fixing a roof leak is finding the source of the leak; where and how the water got inside! There are several techniques to help you find the source of the leak: one of them is natural – find a spot on a rainy day or use a hose to simulate rain.
The most common causes of roof leaks are roof transitions: chimneys, roofs, vents, valleys, and roofs. Very often flashing is not installed properly. The fairing consists of sheet metal that is fixed at each transition point in the asphalt roof with tiles to prevent leakage.

Another factor in the leakage of asphalt tile roofs is the slope of the roof. Gravity is what makes the water roll off the roof. If the roof has a small slope, there is a greater risk of slow-moving water blowing out from under the asphalt tiles.
There is always the possibility that the melted snow on the roof will blend into the ice surface and be pushed under the asphalt slab.

Once you identify the source of the leak, removing the leak from the roof can be very, very easy. If the leak in your roof is caused by a low pitch, you may want to consider installing clear tile coating.
If you find holes in the trim, you can take a piece of metal trim and slide it over the hole and up and under the top tile. It should fit without using glue. However, you should consider a transparent elastomeric coating to ensure a sealed environment.
