This afternoon inspection. In the crawlspace the blocks show a wet area at the top.

Higher moisture reading at the stain area than other areas

Behind the stained area is a concrete porch that is covered my a roof.

I could not get under the porch to see how it is built.

Any ideal on what is going on?

First thing I notice is that you probe tested the stained area had a higher moisture reading. The reason for this is the meter and came into contact with an area that has more conductance (the efflorescence) than the area without efflorescence.

Could you send a photo of the exterior?

I don't have a good wide shot of the back side of the house where the problem areas is at.

The deck here is to the right of the porch where the stain are. The porch is covered by a roof.

There are no drain pipes in the area and the still plates where not stained.
