I built the garage 2 years ago. I installed 2 vents towards the top of the peak. Last summer I noticed leaking around the vents during heavy rains. I put tar around the vents and it didnt leak anymore. Or so I thought.
We had a heavy wet snow a few days ago and then the temps went above freezing. I noticed tonight the leak spots were back. I have no clue what to do now.
When I put tar around the vents I checked the whole area for any exposed nails. I found a couple and tarred them up also.
Is it possible that vents will not stop water from coming completely thru? Should I try to tar from the inside of the vents or will that just cause more problems?
When I put the vents in I triple checked the to make sure they were not in upside down.
Thanks for any suggestions.
