Leaking Thermal Seals

Leaking Thermal Seal on Barrie Home InspectionOne of the most common window defects found on inspections in Barrie, Orillia and Alliston are leaking thermal seals. This defect is most visible when it is cold out and moisture and fog is clearly visible between the two panes of glass. This defect is usually found in builders grade windows aged 5 years and over. The principal difference is the size and quantity of the spacer blocks on the bottom of window frame. This is where 80 to 90 percent of seals fail. Casement windows that get twisted due to hitting obstructions such as ice or forced against closed locking devices are another cause. Although you can have someone drill holes in window to try and remove moisture it is recommended that you replace the glasss unit.
