The short version on this property – we know there is water coming in from the joinery. This is at least partially due to the poor head flashing detail. Given the vintage, other waterproofing in windows and doors is not likely to be great.
Flashings could be retrofitted, for minimal cost, but allowing for paint and repairs to damaged timber would still see a spend of around $20,000.
Replacing all joinery with new, but managing all carpentry as a DIY project would push the cost up to around $35,000.
