Leaking Sliding Glass Doors of Fernandina Beach Condo Cause Water Damage
A severe storm with high winds and significant rainfall impacted the sliding glass doors in this beachfront condominium. The house was a rental and no one was aware of the leak for several days. Water from the leak seeped into the adjoining walls and down three floors. After fixing the source of water intrusion, we removed the affected drywall of adjoining walls and thoroughly dried the affected area.
If you have a problem with water leaking from your sliding glass doors, it will usually be on the bottom track threshold of the non-stationary door. The easiest way to prevent leaks is to keep your tracks free of debris and your plastic or metal rollers clean. If the tracks are dirty, the doors can become misaligned and water can easily seep into the home.
