A gutter installer.  Some times a siding installer will, but usually it's a separate trade.

Check the weepholes and make sure they are not clogged. These holes allow water to drain outside of the window, and are on both sides of the window. If they are clogged then the water will drain wherever it can - inside your walls and house. When the window is closed, you are making it harder for the water to get inside. I suggest taking the tip of a knife and just cleaning them out to see if that helps.

Is there a leak when it's raining or is it just when the window is open in general? If it's simply when the window is open, then there could be several varying possible reasons as to why the basement leaks, solely when the window remains open. Bad timing, as off putting as that sounds. If it's when the window is open during a rain fall, the window could have lost its seal. Rain could leak in through the wall and then to the basement ceiling. If that's the case, I would recommend a new window seal, or replacing the entire window altogether. If you have further questions or concerns, please feel free to call our office. 403-343-0393. Thank you!

Roofing Replacement Farce About a year ago, I had to have my entire roof replaced. The owner of Blue Longhorn Roofing and Construction, Jesse Salas, said he would take care of me and that he was also getting me a "upgraded" roof. It took them almost 3 months to complete the job. In the middle he fired one crew and another had to start. They were all illegals. I asked the insurance inspector to come back out and make sure the job was completed properly. He said they don't do that. Now, after a recent storm blew through here I found shingles in my backyard. It is a two story house I obviously cannot go up there to look. I filed a claim with my insurance and while waiting for the inspector to come I went on Home Advisor and found a roofing contractor who lives nearby and he came and looked at the roof and took pictures. He questioned whether or not the insurance paid for a complete roof replacement. I assured him that they did to the tune of $6400+. He told me and showed me the pictures proving that there were 5 different colors of shingles used on the back side of the house where it cannot be seen from the street. He said he had never seen anything like it in all of his career. When the inspector came a few days later, he confirmed that there were 5 different colors of shingles used in an area of the roof that could not be seen from the street. (You can see it now because they are starting to build houses behind me and there are now streets). When I texted Jesse Salas about this he denied it. He said he would never do anything like that. He told me that it was probably the other roofer making that up in order to get a roofing job. I told him that I have proof and that the insurance inspector had also confirmed that. He said that he would come out and look and he would also send someone from his company to look at it and they would make it right. Someone came when I was not home and left a business card and no one has been back since. They won't answer their phones and are not returning emails or texts anymore. I told him that I either want my money back, the 5 different colors of shingles replaced with those that match the rest of the roof or the entire roof replaced. His last words to me were "you are not my only customer". I went by the address on his website: and it is a storage unit. I was not out to hurt the guy or his business, I just want this mess fixed. If this affects the sales price of my house then we will be talking lawsuit. Don't know what else to do. (See photos attached) Charyle Minet

It’s most likely a common wall. I’m extremely worried about neighbors hearing extremely private noises.

Generally speaking the roofline actually determines where the gutters are supposed to be. Whenever there is water flow coming off the home there should be gutters and it should be all around the home. So, unless your home was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and it has the proper underground drainage built-in, you should contact your local gathering contractor.

Hey Bin,

If you havent done this before, then follow this, shutdown the Valve first then open the faucet from both sides upwards and downwards. If you still need more information you can possibly get all sort of problems you have at Best drain clog remover in Hawthorne, New Jersey.

If they were in the drawing, but not in the written contract, it really doesn't matter -- what's in writing trumps the drawings. If other homes by the same builder in the same neighborhood have gutters and yours does not, you may possibly have some argument to get the builder to do it, regardless of the contract language. Good luck!
