What’s the Problem with Window Replacement?
Frankly, there are some issues with window replacement that a lot of companies do not discuss openly. We feel it’s only fair to tell you the facts. When a window is replaced, a lot of damage can occur to the window area. Brickwork, plasterboard, paint, timberwork and tiles can all be damaged in the process. But worst of all, your waterproof flashing lining can be damaged as the old window frames are removed. The flash lining’s job is to repel any water trying to enter the wall cavity.
It’s a complicated and time consuming process to properly repair waterproof flashing lining after a window replacement, as you must remove 2-3 rows of bricks under each window. Most companies don’t want to do this, so instead they use a silicon seal applied by hand to the edge of the window frame and the brickwork. The problem with silicon is that it can shrink and crack over time, leaving your windows vulnerable to water leaks, and allowing water to infiltrate your home’s internal wall cavity when it rains.
This situation can escalate further if you have timber in the structure of your house, as moist timber is prime real estate for termites. Termite damage can be very costly and can even threaten the structural integrity of your home. For all these reasons, window replacement can cause many problems for your building over time.
