India witnesses extreme climatic conditions all year round. The most difficult of all is the monsoon season. The challenging season is often accompanied by storms and cyclones. All of this combined causes great havoc not just outside your home but also inside it. Windows play a critical role in protecting your home from harsh weather and pollution. So, it is only plausible to invest in the right kinds of windows which offer much-needed protection, strength, and durability. The WiWA©-certified Eternia windows have all the required qualities to safeguard your homes from all external challenges.
Did you know India now ranks No. 4 in the number of cyclones in a year? The deadly Cyclone Tauktae in the year 2021 affected many houses in Mumbai including those of celebrities like Shruti Hassan. Moreover, problems such as noise and dust pollution are only getting worse. As a result, the need to protect homes from all such factors has increased multiple folds.
Let’s understand the challenges faced by the window systems in homes due to external factors and see how the WiWA©-certified Eternia windows overcome them.
Problems faced by windows due to weather conditions
The adverse Indian climate takes several tests of the fenestration systems in homes every now and then. Here are the most common problems faced by windows in homes due to excessive rainfall, storms, pollution, and cyclones.

This is a common problem faced by most homeowners during the monsoon season. Rainwater enters through the window joints damaging not just the windows but also the interiors of the home.
Sometimes, the water penetration is not too obvious, so, you might not see water dripping from the window joints. However, visible stains along the window frame might be visible.

Yet another issue that occurs due to rain leakage is the buildup of condensation on the windowpanes. Condensation happens when the warm air in your home comes into contact with cool air from the outside. It can happen both on the outside of your windowpanes or on the inside depending on the direction of the leak. Regardless, it indicates a damaged window system.

Cyclones and storms cause heavy structural damage to weak windows. If the doors and windows are made of sub-optimal quality materials, or if the installation is not done properly, the entire fenestration system is brought down even in minor adversities. In case of a major disaster like a cyclone, weak doors and windows suffer terrible damage and fail to protect the house.
