This just looks like a dirt stain to everyone else, But to Lugar Inspection this looks like the balcony deck is leaking above. So we water tested and now you can see the results.
Note: The Seller generally never knows that this is leaking. It generally leaks when it is raining. Who looks outside and up when it is raining???

When the Seller has stored items in the garage, we pay attention to everything. Like these stains on a box. Are these from this location or moved from another location and the leak happened somewhere else?

This Condo building was finished in 2008, and this 10′ wide beautiful sliding glass door was leaking from the deck/threshold area. Nobody knew this was leaking. It did not swell the wood flooring “yet”.
