What causes a leak in the ceiling?

Plumbing Leaks

Most ceiling leaks are caused by plumbing problems. Bathroom caulk eventually wears away and will allow water to enter the walls and drip down to the ceiling. Also, pipes may sweat in either the summer or winter. Although less likely, pipes and plumbing connections may leak over time.

Is a leaking ceiling dangerous?

Ceiling leaks can already be a cause of stress and danger. They can cause ceiling and attic damage, the growth of dangerous molds and mildews, structural instability, and inefficient energy use that may result in higher utility bills. These risks can be amplified when ceiling leaks occur near light fixtures.
