The bits being referred to are firstly the mastic sealant around the window which forms a weather seal where the window frame meets the surrounding brickwork and secondly the window beads themselves.
As the beads seals are rubber and the mastic is a ‘rubber like’ substance, both can be subject to perishing under constant exposure to varying weather conditions – both of these could be subject to solidification where they become inflexible, and subsequently they may crack or shrink thereby allowing water to penetrate the home.
