First time home owner
Purchased a home "as is" foreclosure in south Florida
I noticed that a baseboard below a window in an upstairs bedroom had some indentations in it. I called for another termite inspection and it came up negative. He seamed to think it was water damage but couldn't tell if it was old or new.
I'm about to paint that room so I pulled out the moulding. I should note it's a wall that buts up to the first floor roof and it's below a window. It doesn't feel mast but clearly at some point it had water in it. The window exterior has some hairline cracks in it (stucco house) I have attached some pictures. Should I call a professional to repair this? If yes what type of person do I call. Just a general handyman? I'm fairly handy with wood but I have never messed with construction.
If during the next heavy rain I don't notice any wetness. Do you think it will be ok to leave it?
