Mother Nature can sometimes be unforgiving. Fortunately, our Milgard windows and Milgard sliding glass patio doors have a specially designed "weep" drainage system with vented slots on the exterior bottom of our frames to protect the inside of your home. Proper maintenance of your weep system is required to assure proper drainage. For more information on the weep drainage system go to the Milgard windows website.
The weep system allows water to drain to the outside as it builds up. It's normal for water to build up on the sill or the outside track, which is why it's important to keep the sill or track clean of any dirt or debris.
Periodically inspect the weep holes on the exterior bottom rails of your Milgard windows and Milgard sliding glass patio doors to make certain they are clear of any dirt or debris. Use a soft bottlebrush to clear openings, if necessary.
A good time to inspect and clean weep holes is when excessive rain is anticipated.
To improve your home with Milgard Windows and Milgard sliding glass patio doors schedule a consultation.
