The only awning I have is over the front door, but there is no water trails on the front side. The temperatures are now in transition from summer to autumn. Until recently, temps have ranged from lows of mid-70s to highs in the low to mid-90s. Since Sunday, the lows have been in the upper 50s and highs in the low 80s. There is very little overhang, perhaps about half an inch on the shingles. I believe the siding is finished by metal trim.
The water trails do not seem to originate at the very top. They seem to start about 2 feet below the roof line and only on the back side of the house which bore the brunt of high winds in a recent storm which passed through about a month ago, but I haven't noticed any water running down the outside wall until today. The last rainfall was last Saturday from Tropical Storm Ike, but the rain we received was minimal and the wind was not as strong as anticipated...perhaps 20 mph.
I've uploaded 3 pictures...I hope I did it correctly, but the images show the water trail and droplets on the siding. I have found 4 separate water trails along the back side of the structure. Only one of these is near a seam in the siding where two pieces come together so do not know if that has anything to do with it.
I have felt the inside wall and it does not feel soft as though it is soaked (even the area where I know is wet between the walls is not soft so that doesn't tell me much without a moisture detector).
Hope these pictures help and hope someone can help...and hopefully put my mind at ease over this issue. If you need any additional pictures, let me know and I will take others to send.
