Problem: Rain leaking at Basement window (from the interior upper trim of window casing)

Does not always leak when it rains. Seems to depend on direction of rain.

The house has two storeys. Lower is all brick and upper is covered with siding.

The main bedroom (lower storey) has a bay window, with three windows. Originally the two fixed windows leaked in the same manner, but replacing the exterior caulking cured the leaking problem.

The casement window has had the weather strip at the top replaced. Also professional renovator has replaced the flashing.

Problem still exists.

Did a water spray of the casement window and also ALL the siding. Murphy’s Law – no leak.

Can you help me please?

What kind of weather barrier do you have on your house? Is it all lapped right? You might find some pics like yours on this web site.www.badstucco.com Look in the un classified section. section 6 see what the brick layer did.

Also is there flashing where the siding and brick meet? What is there for weather barrier under the siding?
