Are Your Windows Leaking? Find Out Why

Are Your Windows Leaking? Find Out Why

Dec 18, 2019

You expect your home’s windows to keep the elements on the outside looking in, but this doesn’t always happen. There could come a point when you realize that one or more window is leaking, which is a major concern as a result of the damage it can cause.

Generally speaking, leaking windows are the result of one of the following:

·      Poor design: For example, if you don’t have a large enough overhang over windows, they may come in contact with too much water. When that happens, there’s a greater risk of rainwater entering your home through the window.

·      Poor installation: Installing windows is anything but a DIY job. If done improperly, there’s a good chance that a leak will eventually develop.

·      Damaged caulking: Over time, the caulking surrounding the window will become damaged as the result of exposure to Mother Nature. Fortunately, replacing old caulking with new isn’t the most advanced job.

·      Cracked window: It’s difficult to crack a modern window, but it can happen. And if it does, the chance of a leak is much greater. If you notice a crack, it’s best to replace the window as soon as possible.

It’s easy to overlook the seriousness of a window leak, as it only poses a problem when the rain begins to fall. However, don’t put this on the backburner. The sooner you address the issue the better off you’ll be.
