The cause of window leaks can be hard to detect. A window leak can cause mold and water damage. Unless you are seeing visible dripping during a storm, you are unlikely to “catch them in the act.” If you suspect leakage, look for staining around the corners of window sills after a storm. Look for signs of any possible paint bubbling. The drywall may be brittle and chalky in areas where moisture sat recently. If you see mold growing on the walls around a window or below the window, there could be a leak inside the wall.
