Small rant....

We had a leak above the garage and found to my joy and amazement the J-channel for the siding was directing water right behind the flashing How ridiculous can you get!? Anyway, thankfully the damage was actually rather minor and there is no mold growth that could be seen. After a proper flashing job and a test, it is now dry and should stay that way

Oh, forgot to add, some previous bumble head decided to block the weep holes on the window. Obviously, thinking the leak was from the weep holes. I swear they had a whole bottle of caulk down there!!!
