Does your window seal need replacing?

Posted on October 18, 2017 at 12:17 pm

Are you feeling a draft when you are near your windows? Or can you see an increase in condensation around your window areas? If the answer is yes, then you may need your window seals replacing.

You can check the seal by looking closely at the white rubber surrounding the glass, this can appear discoloured, cracked or sometimes with parts missing. Your seal should help with your home’s insulation while providing the right support for your window too.

Replacing your window seals sounds like a difficult task, however, it is a lot easier than it sounds. The white or black seal around your windows will need to be completely removed and brand new sealant should be placed back on. It is important to get this done before the winter, as it can be more difficult to change in extreme weather conditions, plus it will help improve your home’s insulation too.
