Rainwater leaking in doors
Due to the high level of rain last night I have been called to a number of jobs today where rainwater was on the customer’s carpet or doormat.
This simple problem can be cured in one visit and after the problem is solved I show my customer the route of the problem and test with a jug of water to confirm that the problem is fully cured.
Sometimes (in rare cases) the problem cannot be solved due to a design fault in the door design however, this problem would have been present from the day of installation. Although I have still managed successfully cure some leaking doors due to design faults in the past.
UPVC Door Leaks Gaps Drafts. Are the rubber seals on your double glazed door perished, damaged or letting in a draft?
If you have drafts coming from your door it might be worth checking the condition of the door and frame rubber seals as over time they can perish or become worn.
Window and Door water leaks
You also need to check and regularly clean the small drainage channels/slots in your Doors and windows to stop water ingress and creating leaks.
Double Glazing Maintenance
Typically when most Double Glazing Installers sell you new double glazing and tell you that it is 100% maintenance free.
This is not the case!
You should regularly (once a year) lubricate all metal parts including the Locks, hinges, handles and mechanisms with a light machine oil like ‘3 in One’ oil this can help prevent drafts leaks gaps and even water getting inside the frames. Damaged / worn / non-maintained window hinges are often the main cause.
