This summer, we hired a company to re-roof our home. We have a bay
kitchen window and a bow window in the back, and a small area above them
that the roofers re-shingled and re-flashed.
Last night, we had a windy storm blow through. The bow and bay window
both dripped water inside. About a 1/4-1/2 cup of water dripped inside
(a few drops at a time over the course of several hours), from the very
top of the window trim frame (this trim sits above the windows). I know
this is hard to explain with words, so I posted pictures as well:
There were no water leaks from the windows themselves, just the trim
above the windows. I also posted an older picture of how the flashing
looked before the roofers re-did the area above the windows, and you can
see at least over the kitchen, there were no exposed tins and some sort
of flashing above the siding. This spring and summer, we had nastier
storms with more rain and stronger wind, and these windows never leaked.
So, can anyone provide any advice? Did the roofers not flash around
these windows correctly? Or do you think the windows developed a
defect? Because these windows were fine this summer before the new roof
job, I'm inclined to believe the roofers didn't flash around the windows
correctly. Should the silver tins be exposed like they are? Any help
would be very much appreciated.
