Damp cause with water coming through edges of window frame

by Themods » Mon Oct 04, 2021 6:42 pm

We have been in our property for 3 months with no notable issues but now we're having water come in through the edges of the inner window frame and damp patches have just appeared on the surrounding wall.

I've resealed the window frame inside and outside but the damp around the window/on the walls is continuing. Based on the location of the damp patches is there any way of telling if the source of the leak is the roof, the pointing/cracked bricks, or guttering??

Not sure whether I should go calling out a roofer, a builder, or a chap who does guttering?? Or what type of tradesperson should I be googling?

Any advice would be much appreciated

Cheers!!

Hi themods
If you can find a local damp proofing firm ask them to do a survey. Probably better not to choose a tradesperson using an internet search - see if you can get a recommendation locally.
