What is Causing Your Windows to Leak?
There are a number of reasons that can cause windows to leak, and poor installation is one of the most common. No matter how beautiful or energy efficient the windows are, problems can result if they are not installed correctly. Installation mistakes include windows that are not plumb or level, as well as:
- Improper sealing: Even the most expensive windows need proper window sealing. If too little sealant is used, there will be air channels between the window and the wall that allow water to enter.
- Missing/broken caulking: Caulking is one of the most overlooked causes of window leaks. If your caulking is missing or broken at the window flange and seams, water can build up on the windows.
- Poor glass seal: If you see condensation between panes of window glass, it usually means there is a bad seal. In this condition, the window will be far less energy efficient than when it was new.
- Defective products: Although less common, window leaks can be caused by a manufacturing defect or damage caused to the product during shipping or installation.
Whatever the cause, window leaks can cause costly damage to your home or commercial building, inviting mold and mildew growth, wood rot, and other structural issues. The problem should be addressed immediately to avoid worse damage.
Leak Detection & Repair Services
Innovative Construction Solutions specialists can utilize infrared imaging for window leak detection with 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 leaks and the extent of any moisture damaged areas.
Your exterior windows can also be tested 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.
Of course, diagnosing leaks is one thing, but curing them is another. By narrowing down the causes of water intrusion, our team can resolve the problem.
