Window Rot in Columbus, OH Homes
How We Can Help
Windows are an essential part of a home. Both functional and beautiful, they can be one of the first things someone notices about a home, and they are also a key part of keeping a home comfortable and efficient.
Do you have rotting wood windows? Rot in your window comes from moisture coming into contact repeatedly with the window over a prolonged period of time.
What You Need to Know About Rotting Windows in Columbus
Rotted wood windows will feel quite different than they should: the wood will be soft and spongy. Window rot can be found in three different places:
- Outside trim/brick mold
- Window sill
- Window frame
- Window sash
A rotting window frame or window sash tends to be the most serious of these, but all warrant close attention.
With any type of rotting occurring with your window, there are two important things to consider:
- Rotten wood frames can begin to grow mold if left untreated. Mold is detrimental to the health of your family, and it can also cause structural problems.
- It is possible for the rot to spread, impacting the area around the window.
Clearly, window rot is a serious problem that cannot be ignored.
What Should I Do If I Have Rotten Wood Frames?
If you have window frames (or sashes) that are rotting, you absolutely need full-frame window replacement. This is best for several reasons:
- The performance of your windows
- The structure of your home (the area around your windows)
- The health of your family and guests
Our team can recognize the signs of rotting and will know whether you need to replace your windows. So, even if you are only identifying the rot on the sill or trim, the situation may be more serious.
