In this lakefront home in Winnetka (pictured below), we were brought in to figure out why they had continuous leaks in the living room. We brought in roofers, masons, and carpenters to look at all the possible sources of the water, listened to everyone, and made our recommendations. In this case, we worked from the top down. We found that, while the home had been reroofed recently, the work had been done improperly. There was no ice and water shield under the tiles, and many of the roof tiles were cracked. In addition, many parts of the home didn’t have proper flashing. In the 1980’s the home had been completely renovated, but the gutters used were not big enough to catch the water in heavy rain. Several years ago, a number of windows were replaced, but they were installed improperly, and they were also a source of leaks. None of this was apparent upon the initial inspection. It took time to examine this house, and make all the repairs. Today the house is in better shape than any time in the last fifty years.
