    The render on the lintel above the window is wet and water is coming in above the top sash. Any idea what causes this leak and what will have to be done to get it fixed? Thanks

    The side on the left is leaking and wet, the right side is fine

    I would look at the drip, water should drip fron the outermost point of the render and not run back towards the window head.

    Render can get wet, window head should not.

    Thanks Tony, some of the render on the window head does look pretty ropey

    I'd also be tempted to pop that extractor vent off and make sure that there is no stupid path from there into the wall which is then running down inside the wall or render.

    If there is any doubt, a good dollop of silicone across the top and sides might stop water coming in the vent
