I just bought a house in CT this January, and with my luck just had a record snow fall for that month. The snowfalls were as follows, 15", 24" , ICE, 13" Ice and some other misc storms. My house has a hip roof with many peaks/ valleys. there are a lot of ridges where snow accumulates. It is 10 years old, and from what my neighbors say they never heard the previous owners talk about leaks in the house before.
In short my house was leaking in my foyer, guest bedroom, bathroom and my other bedroom. From what I notice there is ice on the Fascia and icicles on the soffit vents. I believe from the soffit it is going into my walls and into my house. I looked in my attic (which has r40-r50 insulation) there were no water on the wood when the leaks happened. I pushed out the soffit vent and the leak stopped. Later when we got another foot of snow, I did see the wood on the roof in the attic leak. It does not do that anymore after I cleared the snow and ice off.
What I think the solution might be
For the last 4 days I have been leak free since I cleared my roof from most the snow. I believe my problem is the drip edge does not go into the gutter. I don’t think that is everything. Do I need runners? My gutters leak on the corners, how do I re seal them? Is my fascia too far rotted or can I repaint it. Please let me know what you would do in my situation.
