Mystery Drip

Here’s a question from our 08/03/2019 Today’s Homeowner Radio Show.

Jim in Virginia says, “I live in a small town in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia and I’m getting a condensation drip from a 2-ft section of gutter and it’s been going on for quite a long time. It occurs most nights in Summer. I wake up 4:30-5am and go out to retrieve my newspaper and a 3-ft circular section of my concrete sidewalk is saturated with water. This dripping continues until the sun comes up and by 9-10am dripping has stopped and the sidewalk starts to dry out. The roof is asphalt shingles.”

We tell Jim he can try to apply some Elastomeric on the gutter as a way to prevent from leaking and add some thermal protection.
