I have vinyl siding with one inch foam insulation behind it. Siding is not water tight. It has weep holes to let water out. That's probably what I'm seeing.

Yeah, not worried about that snow spot. The rest of the snow melted when we hit 50 degrees for two days. That one spot was just deeper. More curious about the frost pattern and heat loss.

Right but there must be an air leak somewhere to let all that heat into the attic. Maybe I'm over analyzing here. Just don't want an ice dam and leaks as I have in the past. Haven't noticed any so...

Frost pattern on roof

What do you make of this frost pattern? I had blown in cellulose installed two years ago with baffles and air sealing. Why would I still be getting this air leakage? Should I be concerned about...

Yeah, i would probably agree. Just paranoid I guess. What would cause a dip like that? The roof is slightly wavy which makes sense given the age of the house...roofs get wavy, I get it. But why...
