Welcome to the forums.

Balcony.... is that a deck you can walk on over the window ?
There should be flashing (waterproofing) between the house and the deck/balcony.

Can you post a picture from the top of the balcony ?

The flashing is important for keeping water out of the home. The modern way would have flashing over the ledger against the wall. That would make the water drip from the outside edge of the ledger board, not against the house.
