Sorry if I am posting in the wrong area, I just found your great site tonight. I have a serious leak on a front double window. Several people have told me the flashing is “bent up” so water is leaking into the window. Others have told me the stucco is leaking. Regardless, I have rain onto my window ledge (inside) and it even leaks down to my floor joists and onto the basement wall. My main point of this post is can I call a home inspector to give me an honest opinion on why it is leaking? My only dealing with inspectors is when we bought the home and I wasn’t sure if I should have an inspector look at it or just call a contractor. I appreciate any feedback as I am more than frustrated with the problem.
