Windows, Doors, Skylights, Stucco siding, or any Intrusion through the exterior walls of your home, can and will leak. The thing about water intrusion or water leaks is that you may not know you have this problem until you start to see staining going on with your drywall ceilings or walls.
These slow or small leaks over time cause major damage including structural damage.
Air leaks not only cost you more in heating or cooling but cause condensation inside your walls or attic. When the warm air meets cold air at leaks at a windows, doors or into your attic in the winter it will create condensation. Think of it like this, you take a cold can of soda out of the fridge and put it on the kitchen counter and what does it do? It condensates or sweats on the out side of the can. The can is cold and the air in your kitchen is warm.
