What are some of the potential construction problems related to windows and window leaks?

Water condensation on windows during winter royalty-free stock photoWindows can have problems within the actual window unit or in how the window unit was installed in the home. Problems within window units can be the result of a bad design or the improper manufacture of the window unit. Problems within window units can cause water leaks into a home, condensation or fogging from moisture between panes of glass, air leaks, staining, rot, mildew, and mold.

Where a window or sliding glass door is installed in a home, waterproofing components must be installed to prevent water from entering the building around the window or door. The failure to properly install the window flashing and other components can result in water leaking into the building walls. Once in the walls, the water can rot the framing and other structural components, can damage and stain the drywall, paint, and other interior finishes, and can cause mold, mildew, and fungus growth.
