Hi there and thank you for joining our How-to Community.


Roof less than 10yrs old it’s most likely going to leak somewhere along the counter flashing or around the chimney or valley flashing. If you didn’t see any shingles missing it is most likely you have a problem with one of the above.


Here’s what I would suggest;

Start from the top going down. First check hip and ridge for missing shingles.

Next check all the chimney and counter flashing.

Valleys you can hose down and see if leaks immediate leaks will show on the interior.


Hope this helps and please, if you can, take a minute to follow up on the issue.
