Well Obviously the Squirrels enjoy chewing on the lead on these pipes, why we do not know. As you see from the picture the covering from the pipe has been removed so there is an opening into the attic space. Here comes the rain and in it comes, into the attic, gets the insulation wet. If the storm is persistent then the insulation gets the ceiling wet, then in comes the rain….
Home Maintenance is so important.
