Poor Installation:
Fasteners not properly placed/driven in.
Shingle alignment/spacing.

Poor ventilation.

Excessive foot traffic.

The best place to get such information is at the manufacturers website because there several issues that can and sometimes will void their warranty.

What sly said,
1.Improper fastening,over driven under driven and placement.
2.Lack of fasteners too little used.
3.Improper application,Poor exposure.
4.Anything that the manufacture requires in installation specifications that are not followed by your installer.
5.The lack of ventilation doesn't necessarily void your warranty as much as it will greatly reduce and limit the liability of the manufacture.
6. In some cases to have a maximum warranty based on some materials certain roof materials are required( underlayment,water proofing (moisture Guard etc Basically all the products by a certain manufacture to reach the maximum warranty coverage.

Yes a good indication of a leak will be on the drywall.But I have also seen leaks follow a rafter and run behind the wall and start buckling the base board.

Nothing, the initial call was to replace a base board and do a small repair on a small area of hardwood flooring. I popped the base board and the drywall was black with mold. A typical issue if a window had been present but no window.I thought possibly it was the family pooch marking his area, but the coloration of urine and water moisture is different.I went into the attic and sure enough it was the roof. And oddly enough it followed a truss right down the wall to the floor.Since the mold was an issue,the customer wanted the area that the water was running down removed.So what started out as a small base board and hardwood repair resulted in The wall,insulation coming down and replaced along with a bigger area of the flooring since the sub floor and underlayment was rotted.

Not following the directions printed on every bundle.

I remember when the craze was not to install tarpaper.
The roofs didn't leak but if there WAS a problem, not installing the tarpaper voided the warranty because it was printed right on the bundle of shingles.

The best way to see if a roof is leaking is to get up in the attic and look for water damage. Sometime as stated water will wick down a truss, sometimes it will drop down on the ceiling, eventually staining the ceiling drywall and if its the first case, staining the wall drywall.

More times than not staining will occur, you just get some that enjoy being elusive.
