    Hi from Chicago's Edgewater neighborhood.

    Attached is a photo of mushrooms growing on fiberboard siding. Reminds me of a joke.
    Mushroom walks into a bar.
    Bartender says "hey we don't serve your kind here"
    Mushroom says "why not, I'm a fungi?" (say out loud)

    Welcome Phil,
    Morons, that's what they get for putting that fiberboard crap as a detail. Never lasts, water sits in the J-channel and seeps into the seam between the J and trim. If they would only caulk it, it would at least have a chance to last.
    I hope you checked the interior wall over the window with a meter. It's rare I don't find water there in that type of install.
    Looks like a suburban subdivision box.

    Thanks guys, I do feel welcome - between the technical response and the reference to chicago sports teams - this is my kind of forum.

    The only other joke I've heard told is the one about the two kinds of skylights.

    Hello Phil
    If you scroll back through this chit chat forum, you'll find jokes to keep the clients and a couple of the realtors laughing for days.
    BTW, jokes are fun and good for breaking the ice, but when there are serious problems and the clients are worried a bit, it's best to cool it. Like if you go to a doctor and you think you might be dying, how would you like it if the doc starts cracking jokes? "Well, if you're going to bust a gut, best to do it now, during office hours, haha".

    Chris, there are two kinds of skylights, the ones that leak and the ones that are going to leak.
    Not that funny when there's a big rot spot in the ceiling though, is it?
