Water Seepage Damaging Window Corner


Hello,

Foreclosure property purchase has water damage. Had a termite inspector come and verify there are no termites. It looks like the corners are soggy and damaged. The windows seem to work just fine and the damage is only in the corner. I was told to come have a stucco expert come and analyze the damage to determine the "root of the cause and the scope of damage". It is a foreclosure townhome that was built in 1999 in Houston. Any idea what they would recommend and costs involved to repair? Does the entire window need to be changed out or is there an easier/just as effective solution?

Pictures of the outside are needed---Is it real stucco or Dryvit?

Outside shows no damage whatsoever. You would not be able to tell that the window looks like that on the inside from looking at the outside. I am unable to post pics at this time, but can try to get some up later.

I believe it is stucco as that is what is listed on the real estate agent information sheet and in har.com.

I think the leakage is due to faulty window installation. not sure though
