My house is leaking!
It's hard to see but if I angle the camera just right, these small droplets of moisture become visible. This is from an East-facing external bedroom wall taken during a pretty heavy rainfall. They are about 3/4ths the way up the wall. Not right at the ceiling, but no where near the floor either.
Oddly enough, the other bedroom with an East-facing wall doesn't have any similar water spots.
The house does not have any gutters on this side of the house, but I did clean all of the gutters out just before this, to eliminate that as a potential problem.
Additionally, one corner of the room seems particularly bad. It has a visible (with the right lighting) spot of water damage on the ceiling: I had to zoom in pretty far and play with the contrast - but there is an odd webbing pattern that I believe is due to water. The entire spot is probably 4 inches in diameter.
Immediately below that spot, in the same corner of the room, there is some pretty bad damage near the floor:
In the other bedroom (sharing the same external wall), I seem to have some very, very tiny bit of moisture just on the top of the baseboard along the floor.
My problem is, I don't know how to identify where the water is coming from, or how to fix it!
The roof doesn't have any visible problems. I went in the attic, to that particular corner (as close I could get) and I don't see any wetness from above. I'd originally thought it was water coming 'up' from the ground, but the drops of water on the wall are so high, it makes me question that.
Will ripping apart the wall help in any way?
I have some sort of wood siding - I assume there would be some waterproof something between it and the inside of my house. Can the water simply be coming 'through' the wall?
How do I go about figuring this out?
