Got Foggy Glass?
Fogging is a common problem with double-paned windows. If this is an issue in your home, you can save money by simply having the glass replaced rather than replacing the entire window.
Window fogging occurs when the seal between the panes of glass fails, and condensation occurs between the window panes. While it’s a more common problem in older windows, it can also occur in some newer windows, due to a premature seal failure in the manufacturing process, or if the window has been exposed to a significant and prolonged amount of pressure from high speed winds or temperature changes.
Lee’s Glass can replace fogged insulated glass units of all shapes and sizes, including:
- Insulated glass window units
- Patio door glass units
- Tempered glass units
- Specialty glass
We can fabricate insulated glass units, and if needed, we can also order specialty glass units. In most cases, the new glass will be similar to the original. The internal grids, also referred to as muntins, can be replaced as well.
Consider Low-E Glass
If fogged windows are a pervasive problem throughout your home, you may want to consider upgrading your windows with a low-emissive (low-E) glass. This type of glass has been treated with an invisible metallic oxide coating that reflects heat while still allowing the full light of the sun into your home. Benefits include reduced home energy usage, less fabric fading, and improved comfort inside your home.
Not only is fogged window repair an easy and affordable process, it’s a great way to update your windows without entirely replacing them.
If you have windows that need to be repaired, or just have questions about the process, all you have to do is give us a call at (850) 432-0865.
