Virginia: High wind and rain lead to cathedral ceiling stains
I know, can lights are bad. Our builder was supposed to know better. We have 13! Ceiling stains occur even when we are away for a month or more. Obvious mistakes are ridge vents that allow rain to blow in, ridge only partly vented.
Where do I find professional help to diagnose and recommend repairs? Our builder hopes the issue will go away and ends up asking us what do we think should be done. We need to pursue an independent, potentially legal approach. The house is 4 years old, 3600 ft. elevation in the open on the Blue Ridge. Real winds and horizontal rain are not uncommon. I need names of possible companies, individuals that can advise for fees.
