There are small drain slots in the storms to let water out. Too often they get caulked over or blocked by debris which results in rotted sills. When considering replacement windows, avoid local window companies that may not be around if you needs parts for service. Lifetime warranties are useless if the company is not there when you need them. I prefer national companies with long track records for service or at least regional companies. Big box stores do not have any of the above. If they advertise windows at $199, installed, run the other way. Thanks for the excellent info. One clarification: Are you recommending not getting replacement windows from a Lowes/HD?
Yes, not from HD/Lowes. I consider those windows junk or slightly above junk, not worth the time/ effort. I say this with 24 yrs as a remodeler.
