Need help diagnosing leak

1555 Views 4 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  Duckweather
Hello everyone, this is my first post, I'm happy there is a forum for people like this to help each other.

I am noticing a problem where there are icicles appearing in an area completely covered by my roof. Nearby there is some water leaking from my gutter, I'm not sure if they are related or not. I can see water dripping from my gutter sometimes, and it just flows straight down, so I think there might be another leak causing the icicles. What do you all think? I can take more pictures upon request.

Things I would check is whether there is any step flashing where roofing meets the, (looks like T 1-11 siding). Unless it is applied over sheathing there probably isn't. The other place is how the T 1-11 is sealed to the front siding with the metal corners. That whole area looks like possibilities for water to get in. Is that asbestos or asphalt siding, or striated cedar shakes on front?
