I discovered this problem last year, spent time on the roof with black roofing cement stuff and the there was no more leaking. I don't know if this was caused by ice and snow over the past few months but all I could do was stand in my kitchen and cry. The kitchen was added to the back of the house 50 or more years ago. When you go from the dining room into the kitchen, the doorway is about 10" thick and trimmed out. The pass through window is the same. Both of the roofs on the house are new. There isn't any rain coming from the peak of the vaulted ceiling in the kitchen, it is just leaking out of the joints at the top of the pass through. It is as if the water from the second story is somehow leaking down inside where the walls join, maybe running along an inside stud or something until it gets to the top of the pass through. There is a window on the second floor directly above the pass through but there is no dampness in the wall upstairs. Nothing makes sense about the leak.
I have absolutely no idea what to do now. Crying isn't helping the situation but it is just a little overwhelming right now. Whatever the problem, I can't fix it while it raining and it is supposed to rain for another 2 days. Maybe it wouldn't be as bad if the wind wasn't blowing from that direction! As I sit upstairs in the studio, I can hear the rain pouring on the roof and can only imagine what I will find two days from now.
It is times like these when it is the most difficult being single. It would be so nice to have a man here and I could say "Honey, what do you think? Please go fix it!" I think I will have a pity party for another couple of minutes, wait for daylight and then try to assess the situation to the best of my ability. I am thinking duct tape and a big blue tarp are going to the be the order of the day...
Hoping you have a better day than mine!
