Your House Will React To The Seasons

Condensation on a Window in Wexford, Ireland

The weather is changing and all of a sudden you may see things happening inside your house or condo.  The most obvious thing is condensation on windows.  This is normal. It may not happen on all of your windows, and it may not even be happening on the windows of some of your neighbours.  It does not mean that your windows are defective.

Condensation can cause problems and damage if you don’t keep it under control. Make sure you keep your sills dry so the water doesn’t drip down onto your drywall. Another tip is keep the window open a tiny bit if you can, and make sure all window treatments are open during the day to allow air flow around the window.

The most important thing to remember is that any damage caused by condensation is your responsibility to fix, not the builders.  So be very diligent about air flow, keep proper humidity levels in your home, and keep your windows dry.

About dfconsultants

I have worked in the new home construction industry for 15 years as a Customer Care Manager. I identified a need in customer service which was not being addressed so I decided to start my own company and founded DF Consultants. We educate new home buyers in the After Sales Service process and procedures. Builders have also recognized the advantage of having DF Consultants on their team, so we work with them doing Quality Assurance Inspections (Pre-PDI's), right through to conducting professional PDI's with their purchasers. Our mission is to change the dynamics in the new home construction industry, to improve communcation between builders and their homeowners creating a strong and lasting relationship.
