My house is 10 yrs old and lately I have started noticing that some of the windows are leaking from the bottom(inside) when it rains heavily or rains on the windows. I do not have the window capping that drain the water from their tops. Some of my basement windows ( English basement ) are getting water in this situation. I spoke with a few folks and the told me to get the windows re-caulked. I have noticed the restrained caulk too, but many places it looks good. Some contractors want me to replace the windows... not sure. The house siding seems to not have the tywek in it and I was thinking to replace the sidings with Vinyl sidings since I have hail damage and the insurance partly covered it.
Any idea or suggestion is appreciated.
