Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) About Window Repair
We’ve compiled a few of our customers’ most frequently asked questions about windows and the reasons they may require repair.
Why do my windows “sweat”?
If water is beading up on the inside surface of your windows, there is excess humidity in your home. Humidity — water vapor mixed with air — is drawn to the coolest surfaces, such as your windows. Excess moisture may eventually cause problems. Here are some warning signs that mean it’s time to take action:
- Condensation stays on the windows throughout the day, even when the temperature outside has warmed up.
- Condensation is running down the walls or is causing discoloration, staining, peeling wallpaper or blistering paint.
- You smell musty air, which could be a sign of mold or mildew. Odors increase in intensity with high humidity. Mold and mildew can cause damage to your health and home.
Can fogged windows be repaired?
Fog in between the panes of window glass may be a sign of seal failure. Double-pane glass is two panes of glass that are hermetically sealed to prevent air from going in or out. When the seal fails, moisture is drawn in between the two panes. To get rid of the condensation, we have to determine the cause. In most cases, the double-pane glass can be replaced without replacing the entire window frame.
