Window Sill Replacement near Chicago, IL
Don't Replace... Repair!
The window sill is an important part of a window as it provides a base to hold the window sash in place, insulates the lower part of the window, and provides a place to put decorative items and plants. Window sills can be made from different materials such as wood, plastic, and natural or artificial stone. No matter the material, window sills can experience damage such as scratches and cracks over time that can allow air and water to leak inside. Intrusive water and exposure to sunlight can contribute to the damage, and even cause rotting of wooden window sills.

Window Sill Damage
There are several ways that a window sill can become damaged. Window sills of any material can become worn out, cracked, or scratched over time which not only affects the appearance of the sill, but also its function. Damaged window sills can jeopardize the structural integrity of the window and lead to insulation issues such as air and water leaks.
The most common type of damage that affects wooden window sills is rotting. Rotting can be caused by years of sunlight exposure as well as water leaks or condensation that can weaken the wood and cause mold growth. Wearing of the paint or protective stain on the wood sill increases the risk of rotting. If less than 10 percent of the window sill is rotted, it can likely be repaired with epoxy. However, if the rot is more extensive, then the window sill must be replaced.
