I See The Water Damage Around Your Window

 

All the water damage around your apartment window is not coming from that gutter or downspout. Sure, looking at the downspout right outside the window can lead us to believe that the moisture is coming from here. I assure you, this is not it!

 

The gutter are flooding and creating a water fall just outside the window every measurable rain but this isn't it either. That water cascades over the top and falls to the ground. It may be causing a problem below but not this window. This drywall damage around the window is coming from some other source.

So where is the water coming from whenever it rains?

Until I look at it specifically I can not pinpoint it exactly but I do know that the roof is leaking. This is an upstairs window with no plumbing lines in the ceiling. The gutter and downspout are both below the water intrusion detected around the bedroom window, this is coming from a higher location. I will recommend that the roof be checked for leaks.

Can Tromler Construction found a leak like this in the roof? Of course! We already have a good idea where the rain is coming through the roofing.
