by | Jun 19, 2023 | Glazing

Double glazed windows serve many purposes in a home including insulation. Unfortunately, their efficiency decreases with time hence the need for replacement. Sometimes, the window may need to be repaired and not replaced.

Which situations warrants for a replacement or repair?

Water leaks – There are two reasons for this; if the drainage section on the window is blocked or if the window seal is not working well. In this case, you do not need to replace the double-glazed window. If you notice that the drainage is blocked, clean it properly but if the seal has a problem, you will need to replace it. Talk to a professional to help you clean or repair the problem. If the window is still under guarantee, notify the supplier.

Condensation – The process occurs when vapor or gas changes to liquid. When condensation forms inside your home, you do not have to be concerned about any repairs or placements. The use of the room, number of people in the room, the ventilation, and the temperature outside and inside your home contributes to condensation on the inner side of your glazed window. You may need to improve the ventilation of your home to reduce the condensation. Click here to know more.
