“I love the look of our dormer windows,” Steven said. “And I absolutely love how they make the upstairs bedrooms larger and lighter spaces. But what I don’t love is the fact that they leak terribly. Every time it rains, we get some water coming in around the frame of the window. It’s stained the wallboard – and I don’t even want to know what’s going on behind that!”
Improperly built dormer windows can be a real headache for the homeowner. As your Sherborn building contractor, we’ve seen plenty of dormer windows in our time. Dormers are a particularly popular option in our region. However, if they’re not well built, they can leak. Water and cold air can come in. Heat can also leak out of improperly built dormer windows – no joke as home heating costs continue to escalate.
To protect the investment you’ve made in your home, prevent any future damage from occurring, and contain home heating costs, consider dormer window replacement. Every badly built dormer window situation is different. As your Sherborn building contractor, we’ll come and personally inspect the situation. Sometimes the issue of a leaky dormer window can be addressed by simply replacing the window and some of the framing that surrounds it. Other times, especially if the dormer window has been leaking for some time, there may be water damage that needs repair.
Our goal is always to improve the safety, comfort, and beauty of your home. We value long-term relationships with all of our clients, so you don’t need to worry that we’ll turn a simple dormer window replacement into a bigger job than it needs to be.
“Once the dormer window was replaced, the upstair bedrooms were so much warmer and more comfortable! I couldn’t believe what a change a simple repair could make. And now there’s no worry about water damage inside my walls. Talk about peace of mind!”
