Rain leaking thru soffits - why?

3182 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  packet04
I had my roof reshingled 4 years ago. Last year I had to replace all the wooden soffit and fascia as it had rotted in places. Now it is leaking between the seams of the soffit. Any ideas why?

I don't think the drip edge was installed all the way around. Will that fix the problem or is it something else?

Check to make sure the downspouts are not plugged with roots and dirt. Get someone to take a garden hose to the downspout and turn the hose on. And "make sure" U SEE where it is coming out at the bottom. Depending on the rain event "Amount of rain during a given time period" Gutter, partial clogged or smaller. Gutter can do spill over. We do not see this because we are inside most of the time.
