Leak Armor stands as an effective defense mechanism for your home, ensuring that windows and doors are fortified against the relentless challenge of moisture infiltration. The significance of this protection cannot be overstated, especially in the Pacific Northwest, where the climate can test the limits of your home’s exterior. Here are several reasons why Leak Armor is indispensable for your home:

  1. Enhanced Structural Integrity: Leak Armor preserves your home’s structure by preventing moisture-related damage like wood rot and mold.
  2. Improved Energy Efficiency: By sealing drafts and leaks, Leak Armor contributes to lower energy bills and more stable indoor temperatures.
  3. Increased Comfort and Well-being: It ensures a comfortable living environment by eliminating drafts and reducing the risk of mold and mildew growth.
  4. Preservation of Aesthetic Appeal: Leak Armor maintains the visual integrity of your home by preventing the unsightly effects of water damage.
  5. Peace of Mind: Offering a 10-year warranty, Leak Armor provides long-term assurance against the hassles of water damage and repairs.

Leak Armor Installation Process

The Leak Armor installation process is a meticulous and comprehensive approach engineered to provide your home with the highest level of protection against water infiltration. This detailed method is a testament to Lake Washington Windows and Doors’ commitment to quality, innovation, and customer satisfaction. Here is an overview of the steps involved in the Leak Armor installation process:

  1. Initial Consultation and Assessment: Every Leak Armor installation begins with a thorough consultation. Our experts assess your home’s specific needs, considering factors like climate exposure, architectural style, and personal preferences. This step ensures that the solution is perfectly tailored to your home.
  2. Preparation and Measurement: Precision is key in the Leak Armor process. Our technicians take exact measurements of your window and door openings to guarantee a flawless fit. This careful preparation helps prevent potential leak points right from the start.
  3. Application of Self-Adhesive Material: The first layer of defense is a self-adhesive material applied around the openings of windows and doors. This material acts as a barrier, sealing off any pathways that could allow water to enter, ensuring a tight and secure seal against moisture.
  4. Installation of the Applied Sill Pan: Following the adhesive, an applied sill pan is installed at the base of the window or door. This component acts like a basin, capturing any water that may penetrate and directing it away from the structure, safeguarding the underlying materials from water damage.
  5. Flashing System Application: The next step involves applying a robust flashing system above and around the windows and doors. This added layer functions like an umbrella, deflecting water away from the openings, further enhancing the moisture protection of your home.
  6. Sealing with Polyurethane Sealants: The final touch in the Leak Armor installation is the application of polyurethane sealants. These sealants provide a durable, flexible, and weather-resistant barrier, ensuring long-term protection against moisture and the elements.
  7. Insulation and Final Checks: After the sealants, we add insulation around the windows and doors to maximize energy efficiency and comfort. Our team conducts thorough checks to ensure every component of the Leak Armor installation is perfectly executed, leaving no detail overlooked.
  8. Clean-up and Review: Respect for your home is a cornerstone of our service. We ensure your property is left cleaner than we found it, conducting a final walkthrough to review the installation with you, ensuring your complete satisfaction.

The Leak Armor installation process is designed not just to meet but to exceed industry standards. It reflects Lake Washington Windows and Doors’ dedication to providing homeowners with the ultimate peace of mind, knowing their investment is protected by the most advanced installation techniques available.
