That is the best way for them to start to trouble shoot what is wrong with the roof. Once the roofer finds the leak source in the attic. They can then go up on the roof and determine if the roof is damaged or if you are dealing with an aged roof. Damage could be caused by most anything, like a tree branch hitting the house in a storm.
