MDM and TheHeightslife thank you so much. This is the type of help and advice JClist is great for. I will give Barry a call, it sounds like you both had similar issues and glad to hear yours have been sorted. Thanks again!

I had that problem in one building years ago. Horizontal rain came through the walls. It was fixed by repointing the brick, covering it in a synthetic stucco, and completely rebuilding the wood work around the windows (which was capped in aluminum but badly rotted underneath). The replacement material used around the windows was water proof on the exterior.

It was a major pain of a project, but it fixed the issues.

We live in a stucco-clad condo and inherited leaks through windows and into homes beneath us. We have conducted extensive water remediation through a capital project, as well as localized repairs to windows and sliding doors. A few things to consider as you troubleshoot your issue(s):

1. The age of the stucco and the waterproofing system behind it may be old or compromised.

2. Leaks at the windows could be seals intersecting between the stucco and the window exterior OR flashing on the bottom of the window.

I would suggest you start with a waterproofing specialist that's worked on stucco to conduct a water test and troubleshoot repairs. We've worked (since roughly 2008) with Kay Waterproofing. Contact Barry Grummer (co-owner) at 212.348.3300. They do work throughout Jersey City, Manhattan and across the area.

For windows, I would recommend service division of the manufacturer for the windows you currently have in your home. We have Marvin windows and doors, so they helped us with troubleshooting seals, etc. Kay can also help with removing the windows and flashing them, but there's a risk of damage inherent in the work, so best to go straight to your window manufacturer.

Our property is at 120 Sherman Avenue (corner of Griffith) in the Heights. If you're in the area and want to have a look at some of the work they've done to help us remedy water intrusion, I'm happy to walk you through it. Or you can email me more questions at lcospito@gmail.com.

Hope this helps.

We are experiencing leaks inside our building beginning at the exterior walls/windows when the rain hits a certain side of the house in high winds. We've had no leaks during snow and it's only when the rain is driving on to the one side of the house that we see water coming through. Capitol roofers were great but were pretty certain our problem was not with the roof itself. As only roofing is their specialty they were unable to help with the issue.

Can anyone recommend a siding and window repair company? Prefer to not deal with a general contractor. Any other advice welcome too. We're a three unit three floor wood-framed building with stucco exterior. Leak is through window frame and on ceiling of second floor unit and in basement exactly below ceiling leak.

Thanks!!
