Leaks and Condensation

Things to Look For:

  • Water drips on siding
  • Standing water
  • Condensation between window panes
  • Icicles

Details:

  • Icicles and drips or streams of water are an indication that excess water is flowing where it shouldn’t be.

  • Standing water on a patio, deck, balcony, or courtyard is an indication of improper drainage.

  • Condensation is a sign that the window seal has failed.
