How Can I Fix My Broken Window?

Do you have one or more broken windows in your home? Various problems may have you in search of a permanent solution. Consider these common problems and the best ways to fix your broken window.

  • Stuck windows: Wooden windows are most likely to stick in the summer because this material expands in warm, humid weather. To get the window unstuck, first try rubbing candle wax along the window’s edge. If this fails to fix the problem, file down the opening edge to give the windows more room to slide. You may need a professional’s help to do this.
  • Loose windows: The opposite can also occur when windows become loose and begin to rattle around. To fix your broken window, a professional can adjust its position as if installing it from scratch and, if that fails to work, try other methods .
  • Broken glass: If a window pane is cracked, you can temporarily seal the crack with weather-seal tape or even clear nail polish. This is not a good permanent solution, though. If whole pieces of glass are missing, you should hire a window company to replace the pane.
  • Rotten window sill: Wood can rot if it’s exposed to water. The best option for fixing this problem is to have the sill replaced. If the damage is more widespread, you may need to replace the entire window.
  • Drafty windows: An easy way to fix a drafty window is to replace worn down or cracked weatherstripping. Professional services are recommended. This helps the window close tightly, reducing drafts and providing energy savings. You can also apply caulk to stationary joints, but again, this is a temporary solution at best. Replacement is one of the best solution for drafty windows, especially if they are older and just not as efficient anymore.
  • Foggy glass: If the window is always foggy or sweaty looking, it can mean the seal between the two panes of glass has broken. It might be possible to de-fog the glass, but it’s difficult to prevent the problem from reoccurring. A better, more permanent option is to replace the window. You can save money by replacing only the glass portion.
