Just look at it this way ya'll. Around windows everything should be installed from the bottom up. That bottom piece of J metal was obviously installed last, nothing covers the top edge of it to keep shedding water out.
Work from the bottom up, not the top down!
Kim - hire someone competent to fix it, you'll spend some cash but you'll get it taken care of now - you got enough to worry about. Well wishes to the wife bro, cancer has torn through my immediate family last few years, it sucks.
Yup that's pretty much by plan on using a different contractor.
Agree band aids that Ive seen done will break.......
My mom has been through this cancer hell twice in 8 years! A survivor and strong woman but it's not fun. I wish I was close so I could fix this deal for you. It's sad a "contractor" thinks this is acceptable.
Well, looks like the full force came through...it's inspiring to see in this day and age....I could offer my 2 cents, but it is already covered (bad pun)...
I do wish your wife and yourself health, and peace.
I'm overwhelmed with all the response but I did know there was a lot of knowledge sitting on this forum. The leak in the building has just been a pain in the ass. Appreciate all the advice.
Thanks for all the good thoughts et cetera regarding my wife. Yup the cancer deal sucks. Lost my dad and older brother to it. It's a slow growing type (Islet cell). She had a major assed surgery last summer called a Whipple surgery. It "looked" like all was removed, margins clean et cetera. It showed back up on the latest CT. Were in kind of a holding pattern for a bit and then another MRI to figure direction of treatment. No talk of chemo yet...just chop or burn. The waiting thing is tough.
If you haven't done so already look into CBD oils for your wife, I personally KNOW people that the stuff has worked miracles for.
Research "Rick Simpson Oil" on Youtube and Google, you will find tons of good stuff on it.
Here's a BIG BIG BIG shoutout to Ken and Mark for the expert help on my leaky window. They got a course of action going which ended up involving the original contractor due to some rot in a header that was discovered. Non weight bearing header. After he replaced the window and repaired the window they gave me instructions....IE stand back and look stupid...I'm good at that. They did all the metal work. I learned a lot from them.
Anyway yesterdays storm dumped 1.1 inches of rain on the building according to my weather station. We drove down today...everything is dry.
I'm more than humbled by the help I received so a big, big shoutout and thank you to Ken & Mark. It looks like the 2 year leak mystery is over.
Take care of that weather station, it's how I keep an eye on the boat from Arizona.
Glad to hear it is taken care of, I'm sure it was just a matter of doing it the right way, I'm sure they pointed out the mistakes made and how simple it should have been in the first place with just a little knowledge and skill.
Great job Ken and Mark, the brotherhood is strong!!
Blows my mind that a 'professional' would try to pass this shit off as a fix. I'm pretty sure my dog could do a nicer fucking job. Glad you got the issue resolved so now you and your wife can focus on battling important issues!
Could of at least used 5200..
Yup Ken really zeroed in on the problem. Mark is shooting up on last piece of flashing for one corner.
Kim send pic of finish product done the right way
well done boys......
Would like to hear and see pics of what they found wrong, too! I always love to see bad work, it's great for what-not-to-dos.
