Another New Leak- Basement Window
 
4 Attachment(s)

It is raining heavy here today and our basement window is leaking on the top where it meets the wood frame. We had new vinyl siding put on this spring and there was flashing put above the window that extends up under the Tyvek.

We are still having issues with our upper door leaking in the bottom right hand corner. I don't think this is related. There is flashing above this door as well. At the time, it looked like the contractor was doing a good job but now I'm wondering if there was something missed?

Thanks.......
