Our home remodeling team at TightSeal Exteriors & Baths completed this beautiful window replacement in West Allis, Wisconsin.
Our window replacement experts commonly see windows similar to the ones in this West Allis home. Like in many older homes in the Milwaukee County area, these windows were original to the home. With the windows being older, they were extremely drafty and difficult to open. This is common with old style windows.
Another issue our window replacement contractors see often is rotting within the frame of the window. This is caused by a broken seal or improperly installed window, which then leads to condensation and air from the outside leaking into the home.

Before TightSeal West Allis Window Replacement
- Rotted window frames can be difficult to detect
- Consult with your window replacement contractor if your windows have structrual damage
The windows on this West Allis home showed obvious signs of deterioration. The most notable issue was the air that could be felt around the window frames leaking into the home. Other signs of window deterioration are not as obvious, and require a professional window replacement company to uncover.
Frequently, this includes rotted window frames. Many times window frame rot can we tough to see without removing your window and closely inspecting the window frame.
When it comes to your window replacement project, make sure to ask your window replacement company or window contractor to inspect for rotted window frames. This will be a crucial part of your replacement project, as it may save you a lot of headache down the road.
Discuss with your window contractor whether a full frame or pocket window replacement makes sense for you. If your windows are suffering from rot it is a smart idea to replace the entire window frame. This will solve the root of the problem by completely removing the frame that has structural damage.
Discuss with your window contractor what your goals are and ask for a recommendation that works for you.
- Cold air could be felt leaking into the home from the windows
- Broken seals or faulty window installations lead to high energy bills
The homeowners in West Allis were also reporting that cold air could be felt coming inside the home. With old windows you can often feel cold air around the window. This can be a nightmare in Wisconsin winters, as you are losing warm energy inside your home due to poorly functioning windows.
When the air from outside gets into your home from your windows, moisture and condensation will form inside your windows. This will lead to rot and even black mold, which is something you don’t want to expose yourself or your family to. Broken seals and improperly installed windows also lead to higher energy bills as the cool/warm air you are paying for to keep your home comfortable is leaking outside through faulty windows.
Consult with your window replacement company if you are experiencing drafts coming into your home. A window replacement contractor will be able to identify if your seal is broken or what measures need to be taken in order to rectify this issue.
