How to Inspect Your Windows After a Summer Storm

July 08, 2019

A lot of thunderstorms occur in the summer due to the increased amount of warm, moist air that goes into the atmosphere. Windows don’t just help in keeping your home comfortable, but they also protect you from harsh weather events. For your safety, make sure that the storm has cleared out before inspecting your home’s exterior.

How to Inspect Your Windows After a Summer Storm

Learn how to check your windows for damage after a summer storm from your local replacement windows provider, Renewal by Andersen® of Milwaukee.

What to Look For

High winds can cause trees to fall over the roof or shatter windows. After a storm, check your windows for shattered or broken panes. Look for dents, holes and cracks in the glass. See if the frames are damaged or dented.

It’s trickier to determine signs of water damage. When not addressed, it can lead to unsightly mold growth, which can affect your indoor air quality and even your family’s health.

Look out for moisture buildup or fog between glass panes. Your double-hung window may not be closing tightly if water is leaking all around it. When it’s time to replace your damaged windows, choose a reliable windows contractor like Renewal by Andersen of Milwaukee.

Hear From Our Customers

Jason and Brett did an awesome job installing our doors. We had separate installers a month earlier for our windows who also did a fantastic job. They were all very professional and cleaned up almost better than the area looked before the installation! Since these were both jobs that took more than one day the installers were great at keeping us informed on the status of where the project was at along the way.

I cant express how happy we are with choosing Andersen for our window installation. Our sales representative was knowledgeable with product and answered any questions we had without hesitation. I did also fill out a survey that was sent in an email, but sadly I failed to personally name the two gentlemen that performed the actual installation. Barrett and Francisco were our guys, and let me tell you, they were outstanding!!! They did Excellent work and were professional as well as efficient and made this a smooth, none evasive process for us. I strongly recommend this company and these installers to anyone in need of windows!!! My husband and I could not be more pleased we chose Andersen for replacing our windows!!!

This was a great crew to work with. Both the original install manager we worked with (Jay) and the install team (Daniel, Mason, Tony, Ethan, and Jose). Everyone was very professional and knowledgable. They answered all my questions and the end result on the house is great. In 3 days they replaced an old bay window with a new bay window, a set of french doors on the patio with a sliding patio door, and our old front door with a new front door and storm door.
