How to Repair a Window Seal

Maintaining windows often feels like a never-ending process. Despite the window being a seemingly low-touch aspect of your home, many homeowners experience problems with their windows. A broken window seal is one of them. If you are concerned that you may have a window seal failure and are wondering how to repair it, you have come to the right place.

What Are Window Seals?

Windows are more advanced than many homeowners would assume. For example, you might not know that double and triple pane windows are typically filled with gas insulation. A window seal is a sealant around the perimeter of the window used to lock in the gas and prevent the window from letting in the outside air. A variety of factors, including age of the window, power washing, defective products and more can cause window seals to fail.

Why Repair Failed Window Seals?

Although a broken window seal may seem like a small issue, it can actually wreak major havoc on your home’s energy efficiency. This means higher energy bills to keep your family comfortable.

One of the main signs of a failed window seal is condensation and foggy window glass. Although the window seal failure may not be noticeable at first, if these signs appear, it may be time to address the problem.

Although quick-fixes can get rid of the window fog without repairing the seal, at the end of the day, if you want to repair the window seal, you will likely need to call in a professional to replace the window.
