Our phones have been ringing like crazy since we’ve had the recent rains here in the desert, with homeowners dealing with leaks and drafts and looking for repairs. And beware, weather forecasters are predicting more rain in the coming months with some El Nino conditions. At California Window & Door, we offer these suggestions when dealing with leaky windows.


Be Proactive with Leaks

Don’t ignore any leaks, even those that seem to be small. Small leaks can turn into big problems if they are ignored. If water gets behind the window it can get into the drywall and the framing and if it doesn’t dry properly, you can end up with mold issues.

Fix Before There is More Rain

Now is a good time to seal and fix leaks, while there is a bit of a respite and dry conditions. It is important to make sure the area around the window is very dry before you begin any repairs. And, it’s important not to use any type of silicone in the desert, because that breaks down easily in our climate. Choose a very strong polyurethane for sealing any leaks.

Consider Replacement Windows

If you have been considering replacing your windows or doors, now might be the time to make the change. New windows and doors can make a significant difference in the energy efficiency of your home by providing tighter seals which eliminate drafts and leaks. It’s important to ensure that the windows and doors are installed correctly the first time to avoid any leak issues.

At California Window & Door we pride ourselves on quality installation and the highest level of customer service. We offer a vast selection of replacement windows and doors in a range of styles. We are happy to answer any questions and help you select the best windows and doors for your home or office. So whether you are going to reseal or replace your leaky windows, be proactive so that you can enjoy the much-needed rainfall, from a dry view on the inside.
