A leak will most definitely lead to bigger problems, including major structural damage.  You know the saying, "a stitch in time saves nine"?  It applies here!  It is well worth the cost of hiring a roofer.  If you are afraid of getting ripped-off, we have two options.  One is to get a home inspection.  You can find an ASHI certified home inspector in your area at ASHI.org.  This inspector will have no stake in your repair, and will be able to give you an honest assessment on your roof and many other parts of your home.  If the leak is caused by a plumbing problem, for example, and not a roof leak, an inspector would probably be able to tell you that.  The second is to visit a site like AngiesList.com and get local recommendations for good roofing companies.  I would advise you to call into the program and speak to Tom and Leslie directly for more info.  We take caller questions most Wednesday evenings.  You can find details on our Facebook page.
