I just turned my humidifier down now. We have gone from -35 C to +2 in a 48 hr period and our siding is dripping on all four sides of the house. Also notice the coke like stains in several places. I hope the humidifier setting solves this problem so I can move on to the ice damming on the garage roof. That will be another post once I exhaust a few options. Any advice would be great... An don't say move ( I know minus 35 is cold :) )

We have a similar problem with the siding on our house. I've recently added insulation to our attic, along with ventilation chutes down into the soffit area between each rafter. Since then I've occasionally noticed water dripping down the siding. It appears to be coming from behind the siding, but I can't seem to pinpoint the cause. I see this on all four sides of our house, even on the gable sides of the house (so it probably isn't from ice dams). Any help is appreciated--thanks much!
