Your windows perform a multitude of functions. They provide you with sunlight, views and fresh air. They also prevent energy from escaping your home and protect your interior from the weather. That’s why when your windows try to tell you something, you need to pay attention. Elite Construction, expert window and siding contractor, shares three common window problems and their signs:
Spotting water around your windows means they no longer close tightly. To prevent water from leaking around the window, always lock them during intense rains. This creates a tighter seal, preventing water from ending up on the window track. Doing this can prevent moisture issues in your home and stop water from damaging parts of your window.
Condensation in different areas means different things. For instance, if you spot condensation along the bottom of the glass, it means your home needs more ventilation to deal with humidity issues. You can address this problem by using a dehumidifier or by leaving your sliding windows open for natural ventilation. However, if you spot condensation between the panes of glass, then the seals on your window might have deteriorated. As an expert window and siding company, we recommend a window inspection to determine the best course of action.
Drafts around your window can indicate problems with the weatherstripping around the window sashes or the panes. If the latter, your windows might no longer be energy-efficient and you might need new ones. Otherwise, you will need to replace the weatherstripping.
