Age and constant weather exposure make your existing windows more susceptible to rattling. But why exactly does this problem occur in your old units, and how do you deal with it?
Reasons Your Old Windows Rattle
The rattling in your windows is not only an annoyance – it can also indicate an underlying problem with your existing units. One possibility is loose glass, which can only mean the caulking has already deteriorated between the frames and the window opening. Any openings created by the damaged seal around the windows makes it easier for outdoor temperatures to leak inside your home, compromising its thermal comfort and allowing costly energy to leak outside.
Another reason is rot, which is more common in old wooden windows. This happens when the units are exposed to excessive moisture, causing mold to develop and eat away at the frames. Because both glass and framing material are already compromised, your windows may rattle when a forceful gale makes any contact with them. Should you notice rattling in your current windows, make sure to consult a reliable window and door replacement company like Renewal by Andersen® of Southwest Missouri promptly for the necessary solution.
