Egress window leak

12/17/2021 (Permalink)

Many times when we get a call to a storm loss, we find that the point of entry was through an egress window. The problems we encounter with the window are usually related to a drainage issue due to a clog in the drain tile or the window wasn't properly installed. In older homes it might be a slow leak that has accumulated over time. Mold will start to develop underneath the drywall or wood sill. Cracks will often form around the window due to moisture expanding the building materials.

This particular window had a slow leak. There was quite a bit of mold underneath the drywall, so it needed to be cut out, dried and replaced.

If you think your egress window has a leak, please don't hesitate to call SERVPRO of Burnsville/Lakeville at (952) 846-4400
