Windows in good shape will stay in place and won’t shift during heavy winds. A common sign that your windows have been compromised and you need to contact a professional is rattling. This issue can be bothersome and disrupt your peace and quiet.
STL Direct Windows explains what causes this problem and how to resolve it.
Weatherstripping can make windows secure and airtight again. After weatherstripping, your windows shouldn’t rattle anymore during storms. It can also help eliminate leaks that cause warm or cool air to escape from your home and unconditioned air to enter.
Fixing Rotting Components
Regular maintenance and prompt repairs can help reduce the likelihood of window-rattling. Neglected windows are more prone to early deterioration and failure. Moreover, certain materials, such as wood, tend to rot due to exposure to excessive moisture. Depending on how severe the issue is, a professional can repair rotten components to keep the windows from rattling.
Investing in Durable Windows
Over time, the sashes of your windows can get loose and damaged during an extreme weather event. As a result, the sash will get out of place, causing the window to rattle. Window replacement can be a better option if the damaged unit is old or severely damaged.
