Window and door leaks is a common problem I run into, especially when it rains.

The first assessment I’ll make is: How old is the house, what condition is your home in, do you have proper window & door flashing.

What drives me nuts, is when homeowners or contractors will do the temporary fix and seal the window or door with caulking! A common mistake, to believe caulking will solve the problem is a big misconception.. In this case, caulking will not do the trick, but only prolong the problem further down the road.

So, to conclude this tip, don’t take the short road to solving a problem. Either have a contractor properly solve the problem or do it right the first time yourself.
