Repairing an exterior leak.

We have an exterior leak. I'm not sure the cause - we don't have a basement, but it could be a crack in the slab. Or it's leaking through the siding. How do we test this?

Do you think it is above ground or below ground?

I'd be interested in this answer as well!

Is the leak coming from a pipe / water source or rain?  I'd recommend having a technician come by with a thermal imaging camera to identify the source.

I did get notified of Erin's comment. I'm wondering if her chicago contractor has a leak-prevention system on teh foundations or the walls.

Hey guys, 


I can't wait to own a home so I can think about problems like exterior leaks. How fun!
