Window leak coming from top of window frame
House is a manufactured home with original windows, window leak is on east side of house. Does not leak every time it rains even when it rains cats & dogs. Leak coming from top of window frame. With previous same window leak I re-cauked 'lip' above the window frame, leak stopped. Couple years later leaked again in same area. Removed old caulking and re-applied. I was very liberal with the caulking and made sure the whole lip was covered (no breaches). Two windows side by side with space between both windows. Lip goes across both windows as one. I caulked (outdoor caulking material) the whole thing.
Above the leaking window frame area is a gutter and roof extends over where is gutter is attached to the house.
Previous to having new 'roofover' vinyl, I had a problem and I fixed the leak with caulking. Didn't have a window leak problem again until after 3 years of new vinyl roof was applied. I am pretty sure this is not a roof problem. Where could this leak be coming from. The drips are now funneled via aluminum foil attached to the bottom of the window and caught in a continer on the floor. No more wet floor but need to find this leak.
Strange occurance happened yesterday. The rain had stopped for about two hoursprior, then all of a sudden I heard dripping on the foil. What in the world was that about. it wasn't even raining. I have also found the outside window wet by the rain, but window didn't leak.
