    A little water will likely dry and you will be fine. But if there is ever a problem here it
    will not show up for some time, even years. As you came here looking for information because
    you were worrie...

    It sounds like a wire is just loose and could be tighten up.

    Neal, I pointed that out and the OP referenced OSB, but then conflated OSB with particle
    board.I missed that.:trophy:

    Snoonyb, that is OSB sheeting.Jwinston if they have it fixed fine, the osb can handle a lot of
    moisture and will swell up and is fine until it can no longer dry out. So as is, you would not
    have it ch...

    Yes, I think the leak from the top is fixed as they caulked the sidings. My only concern now is
    the OSB sheathing in the garage, it is a bit raised, due to water (fluffy areas where water was

    Over time time you are talking about the structure of the building as the osb and the framing
    is all structural and I would bet that there is brick all around the front of the house with
    out weep hole...

    It;s the copper treatment for treated wood. It is just like green

    The bottom row of bricks should have spaces between some of the brick to let water out from
    behind. I would call the warranty people as the water can not get out so it is coming in and
    will cause prob...
