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.
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. We offer some of the strongest, most energy-efficient and longest-lasting windows in the industry.
