Window Leaks - so common in affordable houses and expensive mansions, window leaks are the fourth most commonly litigated house defects of the top ten most litigated house defects.
Window leaks can be caused by defective windows. The new less expensive vinyl windows and aluminum window can frequently allow water intrusion through the actual window framing itself. Water will accumulate and actually travel through the window casings and then into the house.
More commonly, windows are not installed correctly or they are not flashed and waterproofed sufficiently. These leaks can take years to developt or notice but the damage can be devastating.
