Who can I hire to diagnose the cause of water damage?
I've had recurring water damage along the edge of my house and I don't know why. Frequently when the weather is cold (but not necessarily when it rains or snows) the ceiling along the edge of my house gets dripping wet. I've made sure my gutters are clear, I've replaced the roof, and I've made sure that vent pipes that go out the roof are adequately caulked. Nothing seems to help. I tried calling a water damage place, but they only do repairs, not diagnosis.
I don't think it's ice dams because it happens even when the roof is perfectly dry. Any advice would be appreciated.
I would call a contractor and tell him the problem and that you would like an estamate that way you will know whats causing the problems without any cost.

Sounds like a water condensation problem, I would call the insulation professionals who have the necessary equipment to analyze and diagnose insulation problems in your attic space. You might also want to make sure that you have an adequate attic ventilation system in place. For instance, having soffit vents, and ridge vent is great. But, if you do not have those, then have gable and roof vents installed.
Also make sure your soffit vents, if you have them are not blocked! And if you do have the soffit vents, be sure that you also have the ridge vent installed with your new roof.
