During the home inspection process, the inspector will start to check windows to see how they operate during normal functions. This can help reveal how a home has settled (if at all) and assist in determining if there has been structural movement. Since windows are also an opening, they are also prone to water penetration as well as other unwanted critters. During the inspection we will visually inspect all around the windows to find these vulnerable areas and of course report it to the clients. Window frames can be susceptible to wood rot and wood destroying insects. It’s a very important part of the home inspection process. Being that we are in San Antonio, we also look closely to see if there’s any sun damage or heat damage. Windows can have all sorts of deficiencies and it’s our job to alert you of them.
