Common Window Problems in Carroll and Council Bluffs, Iowa

Iowa winters vary from moderately cold to bitterly cold. The average snowfall is 37 inches. Making sure your windows are prepared for these winters is important. If you notice a cold draft coming from your windows, this is not only uncomfortable but expensive. Heat is escaping through these worn-out windows. A whistling window is another indication that you need a window repair expert in the Carroll and Council Bluffs areas.

Other signs that you are in need of window repair in Iowa include:

  • Windows that develop ice or frost inside the window pane due to poor ventilation
  • Windows that no longer stay open on their own or take a lot of effort to open
  • Windows with visible signs of a seal failure

If the exterior seal on the exterior of your windows looks worn out or have visible gaps between the window frame and siding, it’s time for these to be replaced. Replacing these sealants should be done by a professional because trapping too much moisture can cause mold.

Window Repair in Council Bluffs, Iowa

If you are finding signs that repair is not an option, Brincks Exteriors is your Iowa replacement windows specialists. Fixing broken glass on a window can be an easy fix if it is single-paned; however, a single pane glass window is not energy efficient. It may be better to replace a single pane window with a more energy efficient window. Double pane windows have two panes of glass in each sash separated by an air spacer. If a double paned window is broken, it is best to replace the entire window.

Insulated windows can have issues with seal failure. Older insulated glass does not have the technology that is available today and the two panes of glass separate from the spacer and allows outside air into space. If you have noticed a fog between the panes, you are probably dealing with seal failure.

Does it look like your windows have a “haze” over them? This is caused by the outside elements or the chemicals in cleaning agents. This causes the surface of the glass to become textured, causing the “haze”.

If your windows are difficult to open or close, this indicates the window is not functioning the way it should.
