We just purchased this house a few months ago. Lately we've had a bit of rain and freezing. After thawing we got water staining on the ceiling and mold formed on the walls along the ceiling line and along the bottom.

How can we repair the damage and solve the problem???

Thanks, in advance.

mold problem

your problem could very well be ice dams building up on your roof.
Ice builds up along your roof,and with heat rising up thru your house causes water to seep thru the roof deck,damaging the roofdeck,insulation and the interior of your home.

Thier is a product from Certainteed called WINTERGUARD.It's an ice and water barrier that goes between the roof deck and the shingles creating a weather-tight barrier that prevents back-up water from getting in your home.

I would't suggest a home owner to do this them selfs.I suggest a professional to come and look at your problem.It doesn't mean you need a whole new roof.
Get lots of estimates because you might need new insulation and you might have some stuctual damage due to water coming into your home in the past.
