Default Water leak

Outside house, coming down from soffit over back door. No leak in
house???
Any suggestions, where to look? Who to call to look?

Time may be a great healer, but it's a lousy beautician.

Is this a mutated form of haiku, or a real problem?

Default Water leak

This is a real problem. No snow or rain on roof, gutters not blocked.
Above back door is bedroom and bathroom. No water used for a week but
still have a water leak dripping down from soffit. Had compleat roofing
torn off and new roof installed, no sign of water up there. HELP
P.S. It hasnt rained for 2 weeks.

OP-

Please read your first & second post as if you knew nothing about the
situation.

As person trying to make meaning from those posts, could you get a
clear picture of the situation from those posts alone?

Getting a good answer requires that you accurately describe the
situation.

where is the house? age of house? age of plumbing? recent freeze?
recent work? how about a picture?

"No water used for a week " really?

Turn off the supply to the upstairs (or whole house if not possible to
isolate upstairs) & see if the leak stops.

If that stops the dripping you probably have a fresh water
leak.....time to expose the pipes & look for the source of the leak.

cheers
Bob

Check pipes. They are sometimes run overhead. I have that in my laundry
area.
