If you live on Australia’s east coast, you would be no stranger to Lina Nina. Record-setting rainfall has wreaked havoc for months – and our homes have not been immune to damage. Especially our windows. If you’ve noticed your windows spring a leak when it rains, it’s probably time to re-seal them. If you don’t, leaking windows can drive mould growth and impact the structural integrity of your walls.
Is the water really coming through your windows?
First things first, check that the water isn’t coming from somewhere else.
It’s easy to point the finger at the window when there are leaks but it’s more likely to be coming from the roof above and exiting at the window frame.
When was the last time you checked your gutters? Roofing and gutter can take a beating during heavy rain so it’s important to check for any signs of damage.
It’s probably time to re-seal the windows against the elements
If you’re satisfied the water leak is coming from your window and not a secondary source, it’s time to turn your attention to the weather seal. If it’s failing, either worn or no longer intact, it’s time to call an experienced Sydney emergency glass repair professional to get them re-sealed.
Worn or broken seals can let rainwater seep through and cause damage. But it’s not just water leaks you should be worried about. They also seal against the elements, helping to keep your home cool in summer and warm in winter – another good reason to ensure the seals are sound.
