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.

"Absolutely wonderful experience working with renewal. They kept my wife and I up to date all throughout the process from the initial sales pitch to installation. They were courteous and professional throughout. The installation of 8 windows was completed in one day and the product is fantastic. Immediate difference felt inside the home and its much quieter now too. My wife and I are thrilled at our purchase. The windows are a bit pricey but worth every single penny. Wonderful product from a wonderful company. Will definitely be using them in the future to install the rest of the windows in our home."

"When I say, superior service I mean just that!! From start to finish I was pleased!! Step 1, Scheduled appointment at the Home show… easy. Step 2, phone call to confirm appointment the next week….easy. Step 3, in home consultation with Keith Billingsley…..Amazing!!!! Step 4, call and cancel all other Window companies and let them know you have chosen the Best company, Anderson Windows!!! My Windows took a couple of months to come which was not a problem. Oooohhh but when installing day came ( a week early) I was lost for words. The installation team was A1 with professionalism and cleanliness!! They didn’t leave a scrap of trash on my property. It was cleaned up both days. I had Ed Tutton and crew. I had a million questions and they answered every one of them and made me feel so assured with the process. A couple of my Windows had wood rotted. They took care of it and fixed it better than when the house was built!!! Two of my Windows came in broken, it was addressed and shown to us and reorder in the same day!! They will be installed later. The Windows are so beautiful I stood in my master bedroom Windows for almost 3 hours just looking out. I hate Window grates…. I have solid glass Windows now❤️❤️! I wish I would have ordered my new front doors from Anderson Windows. So if you are looking to get new Windows you must go with Anderson Windows!!!"
