The sealing of windows is important because moisture and cold air will enter the room without it and considerably worsen the living conditions. Many manufacturers offer high-quality, user-friendly sealants and other materials for working with windows.
Why do windows need sealing?
Sealing window openings will help to eliminate draughts. In winter, the room will be warmer because heated air will not be able to get into the street and cold air will not get inside. The room will be much quieter, and during the summer, the chilled air will remain indoors and the heat - outdoors.
When the windows are installed, a gap, through which cold air begins to get inside, in the room is often formed between the frame and the wall. Draughts appear as well. This can lead to slash or mold if the street air is warm enough. To avoid these problems, a high-quality sealing of window joints, all frame joints with windowsill and other structural elements are required.
Many construction materials are most often made by one method. For this purpose, structural foam and sealant are used: they cover the joints and process the seam to protect it from moisture. The above-mentioned method makes it possible to distribute the material uniformly, to protect the structure from wind action, to increase its ability to withstand mechanical loads and to provide a low-cost method of heat insulation.
It is worth remembering that mounting foam can be destroyed by wind, moisture and sun, that is why it needs protection in the form of a layer of sealant, paint, plaster, or any other protective material. The foam is often covered with metal sheets.
The sealing of window openings must be carried out properly. If the foam is not cut and protected, it will lose some of its volume and service properties. As a result, the slits will appear again and the window junction will increase, and the box will start to move: this is enough to make the room uncomfortable in winter and the window structure itself come into disrepair well before the due date. The fittings will wear out faster than planned, the cracks affect the plaster, breaking it down and requiring repair.
