Leaking Eagle Windows

roypakMarch 30, 2010

I believe I just found the problem of the leaking Eagle window. When the rubber weather strip on the top of the bottom of the window deteriorates the seem under it is not sealed. With screens the driving rain is diverted. Without the screen the rain is pushed under the window and down usually starting at the corners. I placed saran wrap under the window today while it is raining and leaking and it stopped the leak!. I also removed sheetrock from under the corner and poured water on the seam. I was able to see the water dripping down. I will remove the old weatherstrip, silicone the seam and replace with a new weather strip.
