    Hi,
    I'm hoping somebody could help me and have an answer to a problem,
    The last few days of rain have brought a wet stain onto the wooden frame of my loft window, the window is a Inliegend Fenster kenndaten, not a velux. I've stuck my head out the window but can't see anything obvious, it just seems a strange place for water to be getting in,
    Just wondering if anyone has seen anything like this before?
    Just to note, the picture is of the bottom of the window, the damp stain is climbing upwards to a point.
    Many thanks
    Dan

    I can't take one of the outside right now, I will do later but nothing looks to have changed to how it's been for the last 15 years .

    Danny without pictures of the outside people will just be guessing really. I am not familiar with that make of skylight myself, but I have seen plenty of velux windows fitted using any old screw instead of the rust proof alloy screws provided and then they rust causing problems down the line.
