    Can anyone take a look at this and give me an idea of what's wrong. I have a leak! I did call out a window man who told me there was nothing wrong with the window but after getting a look at it myself this evening I can see that the leaking side looks different!!!

    Bit more info needed , where's it leaking ? any pictures inside? how bad is the leak , any particular weather conditions ( eg blowing a gale and absolutely chucking it down )
    Window guy may be right , may be nothing wrong with the actual glass /sash, providing the the opening bit is sat correctly in the opening and sealing the window guy may not be able to see any faults , as most of the casing/fitting is under the roof tiles. Sometimes its the leadwork that is leaking which will ultimately be a roofers job to remove the existing tiles BUT I have seen them leak around the metal coverings over the pivot points , where the metal has worn away the frame or even metal

    Its leaking from the corner inside. The corner from where it looks like the casing thing isn't sitting right... I will try getting a roofer out next then. It leaks in bad rain...
