Do Strong Winds Affect Window Performance & Its Seals?

The presence of fog on a window can indicate its seal is broken. This can happen if you live in a place that experiences strong winds.

Learn how strong winds can cause broken window seals and affect window performance from one of the area’s best window installation companies in the area. 

Broken Window Seals 

Exposure to harsh elements can cause damage and eventually failure in window seals. Windows with multiple panes have gas without moisture, which doesn’t conduct heat. This means less heat goes in or out of the house. 

Temperature changes can cause the gas to expand or contract. Over time, it can put stress on the seals between the glass, resulting in cracks and leaks. It then leads to window seal failure and the fogging you see between the glass panes. 

Wind Damage

It may be time to get new energy-efficient windows if the seals of your old ones are severely damaged. Window seals are greatly affected by temperature and winds. Debris from winds can cause damage to window seals and any part of your home. Regularly check your window seals to make sure debris doesn’t break them. 

Winds from a rainstorm can also harm your windows. Moisture can get trapped between the panes when seals are already damaged. Moreover, wind damage alone can’t result in window seal failure. It can only worsen the damage that’s already there.

"The men who came out were able to work with each other good and professional showing us how the job would start and how long it would take. While they were doing their job they saw that the windows sills were off balance and very diligent and made it repairable to place the new windows in they cleaned up the area where they were working and made it look like no one had been there. They were very polite."

"I have purchased 16 Anderson windows and they are great. The windows are perfect but the installation was the best. It is a joy having these windows in my 1910 home."
