Rain and cold can be brutal on you and your windows. It is usually during times of inclement weather that you notice that your windows are not up to par. What are the signs that your windows might need to be repaired or replaced?
Interior Moisture or leaking
Some interior moisture and condensation on your windows are normal. This usually occurs when the outside cold meets the inside warmth of your home. However, if the window drip or leak, then you may have a more serious problem. The solution to the problem may depend on the severity of the problem or the age of the window. The window may need a new seal or may need to be replaced.
If you can feel cold, drafts coming through your window, then they may need a little attention. Again, this could be something as simple as repairing or replacing the window seal or the window may need to be replaced. This is definitely a problem that you will want to get fixed immediately because it can drive up your electric bill.
Condensation Between the Window Panes
Most homeowners have double-pane windows which are made up of two panels of glass with gas sealed inbetween. When the seal breaks, condensation will form between the two window panels. This problem can only be solved by replacing the windows. On another note, if your home does not have double-pane windows, you may want to consider replacing them. Double-pane windows are more energy efficient and keep more outside noises out.
