Answer Question

Water Intrusion through living room walls

The condo we live in had been orginally built in 1970. The condo (at 2nd floor) had a balcony initially, which was enclosed into an extended living room area. During heavy showers, the water leaks through the walls/windows(which was orginally the balcony area) . There have been cracks noticed in the stucco and attempts were made to fix it. But even then the water intrusion happens during showers. Also the unit above seems to have a similar issue.

One of the Water intrusion experts mentioned this could be caused because of the improper rain gutter installation on the roof, which in turn created cracks in the stucco. We are not 100% sure this could be the cause and are hesitant to proceed with the recommendations as the price quoted is high.

Any thoughts/ideas on how we could proceed? and also recommendations on who could help on this?

This issue has been persistent for more than 10 years.
