I bought an old house in June that was re-done except the original 2x4's that stayed. I have brand new siding, and just yesterday noticed brown drippings all over the front of my house, not the sides or the back just the front. I dont know if the 2x4's are getting moisture then leaking through to the siding or what. I dont know were to start, someone PLEASE point me in a direction...

The 2x4 should have sheething that the siding gets attached to, prolly not the issue.

How is the siding terminated on the trim and or the top ? What type of siding is it ? We`ll start with that !!

it is masonite siding, with not sure what paint it is. My house also has a Loft if that means anything. So there is only like a foot between my drywall and the roof.

The loft could be a problem if insulated and not vented but that would also show up on the cieling, and sides, not the front. Masonite siding needs to be flashed at all openings, windows, edges, tops, and the expoiser has to be correct or the joints will not cover the row under it.

Do your windows fog up ?

Do you have a humidifier ?

Can you post photos` ? (Edges, streaks, from a little distance to show the wall)
