RadiusRadius windows denote a variety of styles that include, arch topped, circles or half circles. The rounded corners help soften the rectangular edges of other windows and architecture in your home. Style Line Series radius windows can be operable or picture windows.
Stress cracks more often occur in large windows that are beneath overhangs or are recessed behind a protruding outward room. The shadow lines created by the overhang or wall set up a quickly changing stress factor from the glass that is in the sunny, hot area that contrasts with the glass in the cool, shaded area.
Ice on windows is not uncommon, but it definitely should be cause for concern. Ice is frozen water so anytime your windows, frames, wallboard and insulation experience prolonged exposure to moisture, you may find both aesthetic and structural problems. Melted frost can discolour the window topcoat, crack paint, rot wood, warp window frames, crack the glass and even cause toxic mold and mildew issues.
Water stains around the windows and doors can be caused by mold, or air or water leaks. Such stains are often caused by insulation, flashing, or caulking (or a combination). When moisture is able to get into these areas through the cracks, it can also intrude into the walls and cause discoloration. 153554b96e
