This is another customer who works with Stacey and asked if I could help out with a problem they were experiencing. With the first big snow storm of the winter season she had a 5’tall snow drift at one of the corners on her house. The problem was that she found wet spots on a wall in the sunroom. When I took a look at the wet spots I followed them up to the juncture of the exterior wall and sunroom roof. While on the roof I couldn’t figure out how the water was getting into the house. I called Russell Roofing for a second opinion. During the appointment we concluded that the snow blew up under the loose siding. Since snow is an insulator, as it melted from the top and bottom, water ran down between the poorly installed counter flashing and exterior sheathing.
I am happy to report that the customer has NOT experienced any more leaking in her house after I performed the repair. The photos are below.
