Fogged & Cracked Window Replacement
Fogged windows are a common problem for homeowners. Insulated glass windows, also known as double-paned glass, triple-paned glass, or simply insulated glass, can lose their seal over time and cause windows to fog up or windows to drip with condensation. Once a seal fails, moisture becomes trapped between the panes and can disrupt your view in a haze of fog.
When in proper condition, the panes are separated by an air-sealed space that reduces energy transfer in and out of a home or building, creating a multi-layer sandwich of air and glass, thereby lowering utility costs. What is happening when your glass is fogging up is that the gas or air has escaped via the failed seal, allowing a small amount of water within to create the fog.
There are several solutions for your foggy window problem, with varying costs. Of course, you can entirely replace your windows, but that can get quite expensive. Learning to live with the fog is your cheapest option, but not only is it visually unappealing, but it is also less energy efficient. Many find that the best option is to hire a trusted glass company for window glass restoration and repair.
Repairing the glass portion of the window leaves all of the existing frame or window components in place and allows the simple removal and replacement of the glass unit specifically. 90% of the time, the glass can be replaced to exactly match the one being removed. Selecting experienced glaziers is paramount to the success of the undertaking. Binswanger Glass has over 100 years of relevant experience, great references, and a proven track record.
