Replace Seals on Aluminimum windows

Replace Seals on Aluminimum windows

Over time and after exposure to the elements, your aluminium window rubber seals may shrink, leaving gaps in corners for water to seep in. As well as being a weather seal, your window rubbers are designed to hold your glass firmly in place and if they are below standard, glass can move and slip inside the aluminium frames, causing breakages.

Why is water coming in through my windows?

One of the reasons could be that the existing rubber seals have shrunk. The sun dries the rubber out over time, causing shrinkage which allows water to seep in through the gaps.

Why are the edges of the glass exposed inside my window frame?

Although this doesn’t happen often, once the glazing rubbers fail, glass becomes very loose and can move around in the window frame, exposing dangerous and sharp edges.

What can I do about this?
