i have a 10 year old home and just 3 days ago my daughter showed me she had water coming into her bedroom from the window molding on top that is cracked and dirty brown water is dripping onto the window sill. I walked out back and brown streaks of water are running down my siding from the far left side of my 2 story house to the far right side up to where it goes into a one level.
I called a gutter cleaner as I am not good with heights and there was no ice, snow or leaves up there but the soffit was filled with water and under the shingles were very wet. I then went into the small hole leading to my attic which I could only peek into unless I take shelving down and I could see the boards leading from the top of my roof going toward the front of the house looked dry and the top of the house toward the back was wet and moldy. the side of the hous is also very dark and moldy looking.
Do I call a lawyer, a roofer or the original builder first, or my insurance company? I called over a neighbor who is a builder, but not a roofer and he just said sorry dude this looks bad. Any advice would be appreciated. I need a show to come visit me and advise me as this home, which I built and love is now quite scary.
