Any Idea???


Oldest daughters home, Denver area, home was painted 6-8 months ago, she says it appears to be coming from between the top siding seam.

I have not seen this in person yet.

The weather has not been bad to a point where there would be an ice dam.

Last major rain was about 10 days ago.

As far as I know there is no interior damge at all. I will check on this.

Thank you for the input.

I've seen that kind of streaking after I pressure wash sometimes. It usually turns out to be some kind of old hornet or wasp nest.

Re: Any Idea???


I enlarged the picture and there looks to be a "clump" in the upper corner where the soffet meets whatever that other structure is.

I wonder if the painters could have painted over an old nest?

Nah.

I'll take a look when I'm there.

I blew up the one pic, it does appear to be coming from the seam. I also see a smudge on the bottom of the fasica board.

I believe her siding is a fiber type board.

It's getting in between fascia sheathing gap above and collecting in the eave

Good thought, I'll ask her if they used pump jacks or ladders.

A valley covered with a pile of leaves or other crud? Blocked condensate line? Bad roof vent collar?

Text her about leaves in the gutter and valley. She won't go up on that part of the roof. She's crazy, not stupid. The one granddaughter would love being up there, info from a 3 year old probably wouldn't help....

No attic HVAC. I know the bath vent is routed properly, I did it. It is not in this area.

I'll check the vents when I'm up there.

Re: Any Idea???


I goog'd -- Brown Ooz coming down siding --look at images.

From your pics I'd say gutter - D/S first, ice dam back up.

In the search a couple of people's fix was a bath exhaust vent issue, then -- moisture activating Celotex, wrong nails, black felt under siding, OSB bleeding, Vycor type bleed..

Addl - condition is called Crying House

No ice dams this season, has not been cold or snowy enough.

Exhaust vent is no where near this area, I installed it a few years ago.

1/4" thick foil sheeting, something i had never seen before.

Not a nail issue.

No felt under the siding.

No OSB.

No black Vycor or ProTecto wrap there, I used Vycor Pro at the window you see in the picture.

Thanks for looking and posting the reply, makes me think through what has been done over the last few years.

I'm leaning towards the leaf/gutter issue.
