Many homeowners are well aware of the fact that their windows may not do a great job keeping exterior air on the outside of their home.
However, these same homeowners don’t always realize that windows can also leak when the rain begins to fall. There are many reasons for this, including but not limited to:
· Lack of overhangs to keep water away from the windows
· Improper installation
· Neglecting to use window flashing where necessary
· Missing or damaged caulking around the window
· Cracked glazing putty
· Damaged window, such as one that won’t close all the way
It’s bad enough if your windows are letting exterior air into your home when you’re trying to keep it out. If water is also entering, it goes without saying you’ll want to take immediate action.
Not only can water damage the exterior of your home around the window, but it can do the same indoors.
