Under what conditions would this be considered normal? I have drips of water coming from behind my siding in some places and I'm not sure what is causing it. We've had rain recently but I've noticed it without recent rain. It's been really cold here and the the drips/streaks are frozen. Can you guys Advise on this?
Bottom line is....water gets behind any siding
that hasn't been installed correctly.
Since it is doing this when it hasn't rained,I wouldn't be too quick to judge
the integrity of the product or the installers.
If you could post some pictures of the areas that are dripping maybe we could
help with some pertinent solutions.Also if the problem areas face a certain direction.
It does sound like a condensation problem,but finding the source may take some
A description of the house would help;
Age of house
Siding over old siding or on sheathing.
Type of foundation
Cellar or crawl space-vented or non vented
Insulation in and on walls -with or without vapor barrier
Type of sheathing-plywood/T&G
Humidity level in living space
Framing detail - Balloon frame/conventional,with/without fire blocking
There are a lot of factors that can contribute to the extent of the condensation.
In order to remedy this,more info is needed.
