Mold in the window sills

6/3/2022 (Permalink)

Recently we received a call from a homeowner that was concerned about multiple mold sightings in window seals. When our estimator went out to the home he discovered that due to the lack of proper sealing in the window frame itself, it had allowed water to enter through the window causing mold spores to then grow and reproduce.

Windows have two sides – one on the inside and one that faces outside. Should windows be caulked on the outside? Yes, it's best to apply caulk to both the interior and exterior when installing new windows. This will seal any unwanted air leaks.
