Help I am confused. I have a problem with water running down my garage wall. When I go in to the garage in the morning there is a little moisture on the top of the walls. However as the day goes on and as the day gets warmer water starts to run down all the back wall. I have drilled some holes in the wall to vent the place but it is making no difference. Can anyway give me any idea of what it could be. For your info the garage is a stand alone garage with 3 windows and will be used as a playroom.

Step 1: find out where the water is coming from. –  BMitch Mar 14 '12 at 21:03
    
Is there running water in the garage? Do you have big temperature swings between night and day? It might be condensation... –  Steven Mar 14 '12 at 21:03
    
If there's an AC, then condensation on the duct lines or a clogged condensation drain are also possible. There could be leaking plumbing. The roof could have a leak, possibly even snow melting. It could be built into a hill with improper drainage. We need a lot more detail to give a good answer. –  BMitch Mar 14 '12 at 21:15

I wanna see pics. I wanna see the roof. I wanna see if this is water infiltration or condensation. In an unheated garage, I'm not buying condensation yet. Is this are partially underground? Give us more info. –  shirlock homes Mar 16 '12 at 0:20
