Does Your Window Have a Broken Seal?

There are many things that can go wrong with the windows in your home, including a broken seal. While this isn’t the most serious issue, it’s one you need to keep your eye on.

The most common sign of a broken window seal is moisture between the two layers of glass. At first, you may think you can wipe it away, but you soon realize it’s between the glass and not on the surface. You may also notice small beads of water forming in the corners.

How does it Happen?

The nice thing about windows with two or more panes of glass is that they insulate your home better. However, if one of the seals breaks, moisture will slowly make its way to the inside.

While new windows don’t typically have a broken seal, this can happen over time as the result of the deterioration of rubber.

Is it a Problem?

Not only does a broken window seal look bad, but it also improves the likelihood that outside air will enter your home. Conversely, your home is not nearly as energy efficient as it once was, thus increasing your heating and cooling bills.

If you’ve noticed one or more broken window seal in your home, don’t hesitate to contact us. We can visit your home, provide advice, and help you understand if now’s the time for replacement windows.

- Nancy P.

"Pond Roofing was very responsive and knowledgeable about the condition of our roof. They delivered before the expected date and their work was impeccable. I cannot recommend working with Shanti enough."

- Erin M.

"Easy communication with tons of photos and excellent job! Pond Roofing even came back to replace the color of the shingles to our satisfaction. The property was in McLean and they made me look great since my landlord client was very impressed. The swag cookies to our tenants was an added bonus. :-) Thanks so much!"

Laura M.

"Very fast initial response time and great customer service. Repair work was done (by prearrangement) while we had to be out of town and it looks great now that we are back. We have used Pond before and would call them first if we need roofing work in the future. Thanks!"

Scott C.

"Quality and Integrity. Terrific job on a roof repair. Called for a minor fix which was expertly accomplished. Patrick performed a complete inspection, ensuring no other damage or work needed. Perfect!"

"Great communication, very professional repair crew. We have a new construction house that had some issues with vent seals after 10yrs and Pond fixed 8 different areas in one day--very happy with the work."

- Ryan H.
