Winter Storm Damage to Windows

The official first day of spring has passed and we’ll soon be seeing consistently warm temperatures. But winter weather can leave behind damage to your home’s exterior, especially the windows. It’s a good idea to do a quick inspection to make sure everything is in good shape.

If you live in central Indiana and have damaged windows, contact Overhead Door Co. of Indianapolis & Muncie for window replacement, or keep reading to learn more about common window damage and helpful tips for preventing it!

Common Window Damage

In the winter, it’s not uncommon to see high windows and heavy snow. This type of weather can wreak havoc on your windows and cause damage like:

Broken panes: Whether from a buildup of snow or falling tree branch, broken window glass is a major problem. Not only does it leave your home compromised and drafty, but it can be dangerous, especially if you have young children running around.

Excess mold and moisture: When frost builds up on your windows, it allows moisture to leak down into the cracks. Mold is found wherever there is moisture and oxygen, and, if left untreated, can grow to huge amounts. Sitting moisture in and around your window sill encourages mold and bacteria growth and can cause significant water damage to your frame and sills.

In general, the National Storm Damage Center recommends looking for:

  • Cracks and holes
  • Broken panes
  • Damaged frame

What Can You Do?

Some damage is inevitable, but there are steps you can take to help prevent damage:

  • Install double- or triple-pane windows
  • Buy a window film to put over your windows
  • Keep frost off your windows by applying a salt solution
  • Trim your trees and get rid of hanging branches

If your windows are damaged beyond repair, let Overhead Door Co. of Indianapolis & Muncie install replacement windows.
