Water from window corners-
We think we've located the source of our leakage problem. In my earlier post regarding water issues, Sean F hit the nail on the head when he said that it was coming through the windows and running down the walls. Now, someone (I believe it was ShortBus) suggested caulking to alleviate this problem. How do we go about doing that? Would you caulk both inside and out? Where would you put the caulk?
We really want to avoid having a rusty and disgusting cesspool going on under our floor after it is laid. will caulking be enough to prevent that?
Also, we've taken all of the bazillion screws out of the metal wall paneling, but the paneling is attached to the underside of the windows. Any tips on how to remove it? Did most of you remove it or leave it in?
We're considering levering it intact. We'd levering it up and then treating the inside of the walls, re-insulating, and sealing it back up before putting a 1/2 (or thicker?) blue-board foam insulation on top of it, and then finishing it off with maybe some bead-board paneling... what do you think, overkill? or is that reasonable? We are planning on being in some pretty heavy winters.
And finally, do you think we'd have less (or more) trouble with water leakage if we did it this way?
Sorry for the multi-topic thread, but if anyone can handle it, it'd be you guys!
