Windows leaking

Postby Neilandlou » Sat Jan 17, 2009 9:57 pm

About 18 months ago we had some new French Windows installed using a local builder. When we get heavy rain water comes in around the edges of the frame. The builder has recently come back and resealed the windows but this was with a mastic style sealant. The windows are still leaking. What advice would you give to prevent the water coming in.

Are the windows inward or outward opening?
