Water getting behind T1-11 Siding


Had an addition put on this summer. Had a horrible storm with driving horizontal rain last week. Water got behind the T1-11 siding damaging drywall, etc.. I have the contractor coming back this week.

My question is how will he be able to correct this situation? Ideas? I assume the water was getting in between the seems of the T1-11.

Is it at the top of the wall?around a door/window????
Whenever i put up T1-11 i use a wheather resistant sealer on the seams T&G or liquid nail etc...
Proper flashing around doors,windows and the roof line of course.
Sorry to hear of your problem

No need for the dbl post for the same problem.
Still would like to see the outside pic though.

Water getting behind T1-11 Siding


Mystery solved. The leak was not through the T1-11. There is an exhaust pipe on the roof above the commode room. This where the leak was occurring and is easily corrected. I am surprised that it took this long for the
problem to manifest itself though. I hope there is no rotting in the walls/roof from previous leaks that are unseen.

This makes a lot more sense. For that rain to have gotten though the T1-11, the Tyvek, the insulation and the drywall seemed impossible.

Thanks.

what kind of insulation do you have? Fiberglass will dry out but R factor could be damaged.If it were me i would remove drywall/insulation, dry out the area and replace.Similate a rain storm(water hose) and make sure leak is fixed while yr there.
