Signs That Your Windows’ Seals Have Failed

According to window and roofing replacement experts, windows are an incredibly important part of your home. However, no matter how strong a window is, it will eventually deteriorate, and one of the most common signs of window deterioration is fogginess. In fact, if your windows are foggy, it’s possible that your window seals have already failed.

Here are the signs that confirm window seal failure:

window seals

Condensation. Window seals are applied on windows to create a thermal barrier, lessening heat transfer in the process. Should the seals fail, heat transfer will increase, as it’s now directly exposed to temperature and humidity fluctuations. Once this happens, moisture can become trapped between your panes, creating condensation. As such, if you begin to notice condensation between your windows’ panes, take this as a sign that your window seals have failed.

Window pane distortion. Sealed windows often have inert gas or vacuum pockets that are designed to create a state of equilibrium within the panes, maintaining its structural stability. When your window seals fail, the inert gases leak out and the vacuum is replaced by air, which in turn alters the structural stability of your window, causing visual changes such as distortion in the center on your windows. Once this happens, contact a window and roofing contractor like Window World of Boston to help you replace your windows as soon as possible.

The window appears dirty even after cleaning. Finally, if your windows continue to appear dirty even after you’ve cleaned them, take this as a sign that your window seals are broken. This is because when your window seals break, they can no longer keep dust and dirt from between your panes, allowing them to become trapped in your windows.
