Missing window glaze can lead to increased moisture infiltration and temperature fluctuations, which can cause paint to peel, crack, or bubble near the windows.

A paint finish determines the aesthetic appearance, durability, and sheen level of the painted surface, influencing factors such as light reflection, ease of cleaning, and overall ambiance of the space.
