Crack in bedroom ceiling

1616 Views 8 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  ToolSeeker
I recently saw a crack in one of bedroom ceiling. There is no leak though. I have a flat roof and there is no water puddle or crack on the roof.

I was wondering what could be causing the crack in the bedroom ceiling? Also any thing I should do till I get a profession contractor look at it?

Any help is very much appreciated.

Cracks are not always caused by leaks. Is this just a hairline crack or a pretty good sized crack? Is it straight, like maybe a seam? Is the ceiling plaster or drywall?
Stick the screwdriver up in the crack at least 3/4" if it's a seam you should hit the joist and it will go no farther.
