A leaking window is a surefire way to ruin your day. Not only does this give you anxiety, but you’re also likely to think about the impact on your budget.
As frustrating as it may be, there are some key steps you can take to solve the issue as quickly as possible. Here’s what you need to do:
· Pinpoint the cause: Does your window only leak when it rains? Does your window leak when condensation builds up on it? Take as much time as necessary to pinpoint the cause, as this may allow you to put a temporary solution in place.
· Research your options: It’s possible that you may be able to fix the issue on your own. For example, if your window is leaking as the result of condensation in the winter, turn down your humidifier. This may be all it takes to solve your problem.
· Contact a professional: Depending on the age of your windows, it may be time for a change. A professional can inspect your windows, share feedback on the problems you’re facing, and layout all your options.
It’s not always the most exciting project, but replacement windows will benefit you and your home in many ways. In addition to peace of mind, these also increase the value of your home. Not to mention the fact that new windows improve energy efficiency.
