One of the upper apartments in 3 unit building in Windsor Terrace has mold. We have had water issues for a while. I've had the roof completely replaced by Nick and Leakmaster and have had the windows facing the room that has the mold resealed.
Does anyone have a recommendation for someone who can help find the source of the moisture?
Thanks for any advice in advance.
I recommend using a moisture meter. You can buy one cheap, but the cheap ones don't last. You can buy a better one for about $100. Or, you can call me for a free consultation. I will be working in your area next week. I will find the wettest places. This, and my experience, will help identify the source of the moisture.
I install waterproof membranes in bathrooms. You can find me in the Brownstoner directory under Shower Stalls. - Green Mountain

I do a lot of leak investigating. Give me a call and I will take a look at it. Every leak a challenge.

How did you determine you had mold? Were there visible signs? We've had a similarly mysterious leak problem and I'm planning on hiring American Leak Detection. Since I haven't used them yet, I can't recommend them but it might be worth looking into.

Thanks for everyone's response. We ended up calling the roofer back. Leaks were 1) Snow build-up leaking into airvent 2) Frozen gutter getting under roof.
Short term solutions:
1) Extend air vent on roof
2) Use a heat line to prevent freezing in the gutter and keep the drain pipe clear.
Best. - Nick
