Need help diagnosing leak

1554 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.

As I'm seeing it the two areas aren't directly related but are close cousins. Someone needs to get on both of those roof levels and remove or thaw a channel down to bare roof in the ice/snow for the water to escape. An inch wide will do it. I'm surprised you aren't seeing water dripping from the top of window frames on the interior. If water is leaking into the interior of the wall frame it may be several days before evidence is observed near the ceiling /wall junction inside the house.
