Cannot find a water leak...happens when it rains
We have a water problem and the boards behind the vinyl siding are getting wet when it rains on the right side of our house. We do have a fireplace in the den which is on the same side and we caulked all around the vinyl siding, and even caulked the bottom of the vinyl siding, thinking water might be running down around the vinyl siding casing.
We had a roofer come out and he said we needed to install another downspout to the right of the fireplace because the roof is so steep, the water is running off too fast. This didn't solve our problem. He also installed a gutter guard to keep the leaves out and this didn't help either.
We hired another roofer and he installed some type of flashing to slow down the water. This was a joke. It looks like two pieces of shiny metal sticking up on our roof.
Any idea(s) on what we can try next? We want to put our house up for sale and need to get this problem fixed first, and these boards replaced.
