Water leak inside window

Posted by P_Bennett (My Page) on

This video is not mine, but I have the same problem. Does anyone have any suggestions on at least a temporary fix for this. Is it wise to seal up the leak from the inside - or will that just create another leak somewhere else?

Thanks.

Tells us nothing about your conditions, you need to take pictures for us. Also this should not attempt to be fixed from the inside and will more than likely require the removal of the siding and the window. If you have a leak that bad you have a major issue there that needs to be dealt with promptly and properly and I would suggest getting a competent contractor involved immediately if not sooner.

Can you get a picture of the exterior? That, given the location of the leak, looks like an issue with the floor above.
