April through June, 2009

31 May 2009: Exactly 2 years ago we had to dig up this area to fix a leak. This time, water came into the Mud Room during Spring thaw. After cutting into the Mud Room wall board and scraping foam insulation from the concrete wall, we traced the leak to where the roof joins the house foundation. Then we removed landscaping and dug down to the membrane covering the Mud Room roof and ran numerous experiments to locate the most likely culprit. We think one of the screws used to fasten the membrane to the foundation broke out and allowed water to get behind.
