Charlie: Cameron, from Pearland writes to us. She says, “What’s the best way to get help and remedy windows that leak from the top during driven rain. The windows guys say the masons. The masons say the windows guys. One topic of discussion are the weep holes, at the sills of the windows. I’m thinking maybe that’s the problem.” What say you, Tom?
Tom: I say, call Ideal Roofing and have them, they’re the water proofers. Have them do what they need to do. If you have to pull some brick out, you can. If that’s the case, usually it’s a flashing problem, behind the brick. So, the masons aren’t going to fix it. They have to give you access to fix it, and then someone like Ideal will come in and put in the flashing and detail the window properly. Then the masons could put the bricks back. There’s a lot of brick restoration type companies that can do that for you.
