    image.jpeg Hi

    Please see this photo , I ha e been told by the builder that did this roof / guttering etc that there is nothing that can be done to prevent this water from falling down the wall of the house ..... Is this correct as it doesn't seem right to me.?? The roof has just been fixed a couple of months ago.

    For a wall which was fixed 2 months back, it is not at all right? the builder is answerable for it. This has to do with faulty guttering. There has to be a solution and ask your builder to fix it at the earliest else it may lead to costly roof damage, leaking inside wall surfaces, floors and ceilings, excess water often hamper the building integrity causing fungal growth, insects. Check this article on how to prevent leaking gutters http://www.landmarkquality.com/blog/leaking-gutters/how-to-avoid-leaking-gutters-during-rainy-months. Is it because of clogged gutters or loose gutters, check if they are overflowing? Check for the slope too. Tell the builder it could be due to errors in gutter installation.Leaks from parapet and gutters cause immense damage to the building. Hope your homeowner policies cover damage to gutters, though your insurer might not pay for all the damage.

    +1 on what Eddie said.

    Expanding on that, take a close look at the photo, why is the water staining happening above the decorative key??? Do you have an undetected roof leak that is bringing water through the face of the stucco? Unlikely, but why is that stain showing up like that as the gutter is far below it. Does the closest window operate properly? Is there any smell in that room of mold?
