I am remodeling a room in my house and noticed that the bottom plate along the exterior walls has been wet sometime recently and was still a little damp when I demo'd the room. This room is on the gable end of a 1 story ranch, and the gable end of the roof has basically no overhang. I think the water dripping off the roof when it rains is splashing up and getting under the siding. I do notice a lot of mud splashed along the foundation and that's what is making this seem like what's causing the problem to me. The exterior of the house is board and batten. what are my options as far as remedying this problem? I looked online and found one solution that was to use a piece of metal to flashing on the bottom of the siding. My only concern with that is drainage of any water from behind the siding. Any thoughts on solutions? Thanks in advance.
