Chances are you have weep holes and never knew it. However, these small holes need to be cared for. They are small holes located on the bottom edge of storm-window frames, weep holes are drains for your windows. If they become blocked by debris, paint, or caulk and can't serve this vital function, water can seep into the wood of the sill and cause it to rot. To head off costly repairs, follow these maintenance tips:
- Check weep holes at least once a year, before the rainiest season.
- If they're clogged, open them up with a brush, a screwdriver, or a toothpick.
- Clear away leaves, twigs, and dirt that accumulate on the windowsill.
Do you have weep holes on your windows?
If your impact windows don't have weep holes, you can make some with a drill and a 1/8-inch drill bit. Drill two holes into each window frame and watch the water roll off your sill like it was a duck's back.
If your windows have them, you need to take care of them. Just because they are small doesn't mean they cannot cause you a headache. Proper care and maintenance of your windows will go along way in your windows taking care of you.
