Windows To Water Damage
Water damage in and around windows can cause devastation to a home. Windows allow us to experience fresh air indoors and offer a spectacular view to the outside world, but when they don’t function as they should they can cause hundreds or even thousands of dollars in water damage.
Most people don’t notice damaged windows right away. Short of a baseball coming through your picture window in your living room, most don’t realize windows – like everything else – deteriorate and break down over time. The glass takes hits by snow, sleet, rain, and even a confused bird or two. The wood and panes that support the glass shift as the house settles which can cause cracks in the framing.
Detecting water damage around your windows is easy, though, if you know what to look for. Water damage restoration companies will tell you to look for things such as water stains on the walls around the window and on the flooring below it. Warped wooden window sills are a sure sign of water damage to the window, too.
Even if water damage hasn’t occurred yet, there are some signs that it’s a possibility. If the window is difficult to open, it’s likely warped or cracked somewhere. A very drafty window is another indication that your window may be susceptible to water damage. If you’re unable to replace the window itself, a little bit of caulk may help you out until you can. Don’t put it off too long, though. Once damaged, patching it won’t work forever – especially since windows are affected by the weather.
