I have a few old single pane windows to replace. Right now they offer water a convenient way to get into the basement due to a concrete slab that surrounds the house right where water drips off the eaves. Water drops, splashes off the concrete against the window and, viola, an indoor wading pool!
I suspect there isn’t much I can do to avoid this water problem (I’ll be putting seasonal gutters up to direct as much water away as possible). So what is the best way to seal a new, ground floor window to prevent as much water as possible getting in? Flashing tips? Silicone by the shovel full? Any advice!
