Well-maintained windows let sunlight in and keep water, cold air and insects out. When your window’s caulking wears down, water and air seep in creating havoc for your property besides also heavily impacting the energy bills.
If you’re not sure about the state of your window caulking, watch out for the warning signs:
Air drafts - Is there cool air near your window, even though it closed? If so, there may be gaps or cracks in the caulking.
Peeling paint - Is the paint near your window or wall peeling? Peeling paint signals water damage.
Rotting wood - Does the window sill look like it’s rotting? Wood decay indicates water or moisture damage.
