Recognizing hail damage to your windows
It may be difficult at first to spot hail. Similarly, the visible signs of hail damage can be difficult for the naked eye to see—at least not without getting up close and personal with the panes. Hailstones 1.5 inches in diameter or larger can easily wreck havoc on your windows—specifically causing damages that can cause moisture and air infiltration to seep in through fractured panes or broken seals.
After a hailstorm, check your windows for dents, breaks or cracks. Also, watch for moisture or fogging between the window panes, moisture on the window sills, drafts through the window frames and exterior dents, and holes throughout the window frames and/or siding.
Quick repairs are essential
Moisture that seeps in from your damaged windows will create inflated energy costs that are the result of lost heat via convection. Compromised panes result in air that leaks into and out of your home, meaning that your heating and cooling systems will have to work harder to keep up with the forced air expectations you have for your home. At the end of the day, this is energy loss that can be easily prevented by simply taking the time to assess any damages and make any repairs, before your HVAC system ends up paying the price.
Also, hail damage at its worst can provide an opportunity for mold and mildew to grow inside your house’s walls. Putting off repairs can lead to the need for additional, more extensive repairs.
