Why Your Old Windows Are Rattling

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?

Why Your Old Windows Are Rattling

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.

"Excellent service and product! They checked in with me every few weeks while we were waiting for the order. I was impressed with Sam, who measured my windows and headed the installation crew. He was respectful and patient with his team. They cleaned up after themselves. Before the new windows I had huge windows that didn’t open. Now I feel much safer and get better temperatures in those rooms."

"My experience with Anderson Renewal was amazing! From the first meeting with Miranda to choose my windows and doors to the installation provided by Tim and his crew was a pleasure! I just bought a home built in the 1960's that needed new windows and a new double front door with sidelights. As everyone knows Anderson Windows are great, but it was the people I interacted with from Anderson that made it such a great experience. It took three days for the windows and door to be installed and they "worked" every minute they were here. My huge front door took most of the day to install because they had to put in a new header and other improvements to make it fit! They even put up new drywall on the inside. Many people in the neighborhood have stopped by to comment on my beautiful front door! I think the crew left my house cleaner than it was before they started! Constantly cleaning up after themselves. I am thrilled with my windows and feel lucky to have met the team at Anderson."
