Premature Window Failure: What Can Cause It?

In the past, a window’s main function was only to let in natural light and air into the home – but not anymore! The windows available today are designed to improve your home’s curb appeal, comfort and energy efficiency. Unfortunately, this doesn’t mean they’re exempt from issues that can cause them to fail long before they actually should. 

1. Extensive Weather Damage

Your windows sustain normal wear and tear due to everyday weather exposure. But the damage they sustain can worsen during a major weather event. Water from heavy rainfall can seep inside the framing material and cause deterioration from the inside. Hail and wind-blow debris, meanwhile, can actually dent and smash your windows upon impact. While it’s possible to extend your window’s service life through repair work, any extensive damage will usually prompt a replacement.

2. Poor Window Installation

If your windows are not installed properly in the first place, premature failure is only a matter of time. Maybe, the original installers didn’t size the units correctly, or, perhaps, the gaps around them are not sealed properly. No matter the issue, you need to get the problem fixed ASAP.

3. Increased Indoor Humidity Levels

Windows that constantly fog up or “sweat” usually indicate abnormal levels of humidity inside your home. When not dealt with promptly, moisture can collect around the frame and glass of the window units. Once it settles inside the window material, discoloration, mold and rot will soon follow. 

Failing windows are not only a safety and security risk; they can also lead to significant energy loss. You should have them promptly replaced for these reasons.

No hassles, no stress roofing contractor.

We've worked with a number of contractors over the years doing home improvement projects and I can say that, without question, working with Pressure Point was about as easy as it gets.

Everything about the project, from sales all the way to final inspection, went like clockwork and without a hitch.  They delivered more than they promised, on time and within budget.   We could not have been happier with their personnel, products and services.  Highly recommended!

I've changed my review from a 1 star to a 4 stars. Matt Stone got right on a pretty poor job done installing a skylight. He had his guys remove the skylight, move it, repair the roof and inside ceiling to its original state, paint it, repair some external trim that was damaged, and all within a few days after talking to him about the multiple problems. It was really an eyesore from the inside. I'd give a 5 star if this had been done well the first time. The skylight just didn't fit the space I first wanted it and was told it would. More communication about the potential problems might have allowed this to be done right the first time. But, Pressure Point Roofing gets 5 starts for making amends and correcting a pretty ugly problem, very fast! Thank you.

I needed someone to come out to take a look at a leaky roof. I contacted Pressure Point Roofing, Inc. and they came out the same day. They gave me a quote to fix the problem and I agreed to their terms. It was about 4PM and I knew they closed at 5PM but they stayed and fixed the leak at no additional cost. I was very happy and impressed. Would recommend them to anyone. Thank you Pressure Point Roofing for earning our families trust. Will definitely be doing business with you again.

Wouldn't be good if I didn't think the best of my own company right?!

I am so happy I chose Pressure Point to replace my 40-year-old roof.  The crew was professional, efficient, and answered all my questions, addressed the few concerns I raised, and made me feel comfortable, trusting them with such a big project.  I couldn't be happier with their work and the look of my new roof.
