Walking past your window and feeling a cold breeze can be disheartening. Having water leak in between your window sash and frame can be similarly frustrating and can also lead to problems with mold. It's no secret that leaky windows are a common threat in Dayton homes. If you, too, have been dealing with windows that leak air and water, then your first step should be to figure out why your windows are so leaky. Here are some of the most common causes of window leaks.
Have you noticed a stream of water flowing down a window in your Michigan home whenever it rains? Maybe there have been some drops of moisture along the sill or a little water between the sash and the frame. A window leak should never be ignored. Not only can the water that seeps in damage your building materials and contribute to mold growth, but if there's water leaking in, there's probably air leaking in, too. And that's bad news for the energy bills in your Michigan home.
