Window & door leaks

Windows and doors, a common cause of leaks


Windows and doors are a common location for leaks, and can be expertly repaired across metropolitan Melbourne by The Leak Professionals.


In particular, timber window frames can often cause leaks due to the onset of rot allowing water to enter. This is more prevalent on the weather side of the building as it receives the most exposure to the elements. The most common leak point from the effects of rotting and water damage, is where the windowsill comes into contact with the vertical timber frame.


In addition, Aluminum windows, although much less prone to leaks than timber windows and unable to rot, can leak in the areas around the outer edge of the frames and against the adjacent cladding when they are not properly installed. There can also be issues with sub sills which can be challenging to rectify.


Doors, including their frames and sills, are another common area where leaks occur, with both aluminum and timber doors prone to leaking when incorrectly installed. As with windows, issues occur most frequently on the side of the building which is most exposed to the weather, and where doors do not have surrounding weather protection such as verandah to stop rain water coming in direct contact with the area.
