Our specialists can provide infrared imaging for window leak detection using FLIR thermal imaging cameras, the highest quality infrared equipment in the industry. This minimally invasive test can quickly and non-destructively identify the source and location of a leak as well as the extent of moisture damaged areas.
We can also test your exterior windows for water leakage with a spray rack that is typically positioned in the general area of suspected water infiltration. A constant stream of water is sprayed against the window in accordance with accepted protocols while our inspectors carefully observe and document any water intrusion that occurs.
Common Signs of Window Leaks
Water Stains: You will not always see little rivers of water on the window. In fact, the window may look perfectly fine while the damage remains hidden and goes unnoticed. If you see visible moisture on the inside of a window, on the windowsill, or stained areas on walls that appear to be from water, these are warning signs of a water leak.
Missing/Broken Caulking: Caulking is one of the most overlooked causes of window leaks. The outside edges of every window should be properly caulked to ensure that water cannot enter your home or business. If your caulking is missing or broken at the window flange and seams, water can build up on the windows and cause leaks.
Poor Seals: If you see leaks between panes of glass in a window, it means there is a bad seal. In this condition, the windows will be far less energy efficient than when they were new.
Defective Products/Improper Installation: Although less common, window leaks can be caused by a manufacturing defect or damage caused to the product during shipping. You may also experience leaks if a window was not installed properly.
Whatever the cause, window leaks can result in costly damage to your building, inviting mold and mildew growth, wood rot, and other structural issues. The problem should be addressed immediately to avoid increasing the amount of damage to the windows and the surrounding areas.
Of course, diagnosing leaks is one thing, but curing them is another. By narrowing down the causes of water intrusion, Innovative Construction Solutions can resolve the problem.
