It would be pretty simple to trim out that area with either PVC or synthetic marble. Do a tidy job and nobody will ever notice, the thinks it’s just part of the window trim.

That’s nice Shawn. I recently upgraded my shop with a Rikon bandsaw. Works great for ripping down old Timbers.

Not bad at cutting foam mattress down to fit old non-standard bed! :D

Have you checked the obvious stuff like leaks around tub drain or lines? Seems much more likely for “major water intrusion”.
