Hello all, so we bought this house in January of this year, (house built in 2001) and today I discovered that my kitchen sliding door is leaking water from somewhere on it. Look at the pics below. It looks like its leaked in the past and there's even some kind of putty or filler someone used as a "fix". I didn't notice this pre-exsisting issue and neither did my inspector!! He didn't even make any note of the discoloration of the wood at the base of the door. I did notice the hardwood was discolored a bit in a small area, first couple boards at the foot of the door's entrance. I figured it was just a combo of faded wood as in most areas in this house that were exposed to sunlight over the years, and people walking in with wet shoes or whatever. Anyway, so I'm not sure of how long this has been going on or the true extent of the water damage. You can see in one of the pics I pulled the floor register and the paper below the wood is saturated pretty good. Who knows how wet the subfloor is!!!! I caulked the hell out of the door, inside and out, and don't see anything leaking from above. Roof is only few years old and there's an overhang. This water did enter during high wind rain today if that matters. Anyway I'm pretty angry about this and was wondering how I should go about handling it?! I read the inspector's report again today and of course it states that there's no guarantees or warranties and all that mess, but I was told that they did back their reports with a warranty while I was shipping for inspectors!!! The old owners never mentioned a thing either!!! See these pics. How would you handle this matter???
