About 2 weeks ago, I noticed a discoloration on a foyer wall. It went from small to large, bubbling of paint, mold growing, nasty looking in a couple of weeks. Today I began scraping off the paint to find the plaster board as well as the wood below it wet. The wood is black and I\’m afraid this is beyond my limited home repair abilities. Who do you suggest I call?

Deborah, sorry to hear about your ceiling. It most likely is a chimney, a valley or a flashing that has failed. Depending on the age of your roof, and this will be either a simple repair or a complete tear off. If you can poke your head up into the attic you can get a better idea of the area leaking, you will need a flashlight most likely. If you don\’t feal comfortable with ladders, give me a call at 309-373-2209, and I can meet with you and give you a better idea.
