prolly water
Close ....water logged T-1-11 Grin
Client thought his roof was leaking, I said it was the windows no matter how much caulk is there it still isn't flashed. House faces south west (direction of the majority of storms coming through the area is from the south west). All it took was 2 min with him misting water on the window and sill with a hose for the water fall to start.

I have to get a thermal imaging cam soon!

No, but it was obviously not flashed either. I told him to let me know when he started ripping the siding off so I could view the structure. I'll post picks when that happens.

They may already know, but it's about the bottom line, not about doing it right... "take the money and run!"
