Re: Finding Cause of Water Damage Over Fireplace
Was this an issue before the roof was done?
It sounds like that section of wall is in need of repair anyway ..... open that area of wall to dry things out also it will allow you to investigate where the moisture is coming from.
It's difficult to say from here where the source is .... the roof line ..... the soffit line .... the transition between the brick and wall framing ..... interior plumbing leak ..... etc..
If it's from rain penetrating you can use a garden hose from the outside spraying different areas of the brick to see where the source of the moisture is.
