I have a 24x20 addition with a crawlspace. The crawlspace has poured cenent walls and a concrete slab for the floor. My problem is that half of the crawlspace wall in the front of the house is wet,like the water is just seeping through the concrete. The floor slab is not wet at all.Also ,and what concerns me most, is that the ridge joist and sill are wet. It seems that most of the wetness is where the ridge joist meets the plywood subfloor and where the sill and ridge joist meet. Since these are above ground and covered with vinyl siding what could be causing this? Would putting 6mil plastic on the floor help? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank You!

I forgot to add that the crawlspace is insulated with kraft faced fiberglass insulation between the floor joistsof the additions subfloor. Also I have a window which is closed.
