Leaking Windows In Portland Lead To Dry Rot And Mold.
Leaking windows and doors are a major problem in Portland, Oregon and all of the Willamette Valley. The entire Northwest region has such a damp climate that leaks are common. If there’s an entry point for moisture to penetrate your home, it will. Here are some signs that your windows and doors may be leaking.
- Visible signs of moisture inside your home like puddles of water, damp drywall around your windows and doors, or water stains on sills and jambs.
- Visible signs of mold on drywall surfaces or a damp and musty/moldy smell around opening.
- Rotten or swollen exterior trim and siding around windows and doors.
- Dark stains streaking from behind exterior windows or door trim.
