Problems Tend to Grow
Roof leaks happen all the time. Most of the time, home owners get the roof leak repaired and think that everything will then dry out and eventually be fine.
Unfortunately, this usually isn't the case. It is extremely important to have a company who specializes in mitigation to come out and read the moisture levels with state of the art equipment. If left unchecked, moisture will often times cause mold to grow on the insulation and walls. This was the case with the picture you are seeing. The owners had their roof leak repaired 3 weeks prior and then as time went by they saw mold growing. By the time it can be seen on the ceiling, it may have been spreading and growing for weeks.
