I just noticed a major leak in one of my windows last weekend during a heavy rainstorm. Upon inspection, I found several gaps in the caulking that I think the water is getting through. I managed to get a tarp over the window for a quick fix, but I'd like to caulk as soon as possible.
How long do I need to let the window dry out before scraping the old caulk off and reapplying? I don't want to trap any excess moisture and end up with mold problems, but the longest stretch this week without rain forecasted is only two days. Is that long enough for everything to dry out? My home exterior surrounding the window is brick.
