Peeling / flaking or cracked paint on windows

And they definitely make an interior brighter with a natural light from the sun. Yet window frames with cracked paint – a problem that seems a small one – can demonstrate your relationships with a building – people might think that you don’t care of it enough. Even if you just don’t know what to do.

A reason for cracked paint – most of the times – is moisture. Even if it’s not situated between glass panes, it can be a huge problem for both functionality and appearance of window frames. It happens like this: water from a sill eventually gets under a layer of paint. It evaporates under a film and causes a cracking because of pressure. By moisture, we mean either a condensate from inside of a building or rain and snow effect from outside.

Paint can also peel from windows because of poor sealing of frames – ones that were not caulked good enough. A sealing can break due to wearing and tearing – that can allow water to get inside a coating from inside of glass units (if there are multiple).

If windows are not maintained how they are meant to and you haven’t prevented a problem, you might get this kind of a problem.
