What's Wrong With My Windows?

Did you know that a family of four can generate up to 18 gallons of water in the form of humidity inside a home in a week? All that water stemming from cooking, showering, washing and drying clothes, and even breathing, has to go somewhere.

This does not mean there’s a problem with your windows, according to the Window & Door Manufacturers Association and manufacturer Peachtree Doors & Windows.
