Top Causes of Window Seal Failure

Your windows have to be regularly inspected and maintained to ensure that they’re in good condition for the years to come. Accomplishing this gives you peace of mind knowing that your windows can continue to fulfill their purpose of making your home beautiful and energy-efficient. However, your windows will falter thanks to wear-and-tear through the years. In this post, a top window and door replacement company, Renewal by Andersen® of Memphis, shares the top causes of window seal failure.

Window Seal Failure

Foggy Glass

If you notice fog building up between your window pains, then this means that it has lost a majority of its insulation properties. Remember that fogging is caused by water droplets brought about by weather changes and water vapor from leaks of the window seals.


Local window installation companies will tell you that your window frame can warp due to rapid temperature changes, causing the frame to shrink or expand. In many cases, warped window frames can endanger the structural integrity of the material. Once you notice your window frame warping, have your trusted window contractor replace it immediately.

Drafty Windows

If you notice the wind blowing from your windows even when it’s closed, then this means that the seals have already failed, or they’re in bad condition. This results in wasted energy since the air in your home escapes through the window gaps, causing your HVAC unit to work twice as hard to maintain the comfortable temperature in your living space.

"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!!!"
