Water Through Siding?
 
4 Attachment(s)

When it rains, the carpet in the living room gets damp. If it rains for extended period (like this last week) we can pull a quart of water out of the carpet. I checked the gutter above the area on the outside and it drains properly, but I was suspecting the lamp on the outside wall (which is directly inline with the wet carpet. I am not sure if this could be the source as the volume of water seem like a lot. I have attached a couple of pictures.

Leaky Wall

Thanks for all the reply's, they were a lot of help.

I called the builder of the home (built in 2005), and he came out and caulked the crap out of the top corner above the leaky area. We have had rain since then and carpet was a little damp, so it did seem to help. The rain was not as much as prior to the 'patch', so it wasn't a really good test yet.

I posted some pictures below of the area in question. I think I will still have someone come out to look at the are as it seems like this might be the problem where water is coming in.
