Re: window water

If you are talking about double pane windows, if there is moisture between the 2 pieces of glass the seal is gone and the windows need to be replaced according to the folks that sold me the windows in my house. Most double pane windows have a fairly long warrantee to cover the seal between the glass...

Re: window water

That's what I was always lead to believe also... once the seal is compromised, any gas that was between the panes is gone.

Wink Re: window water

Check to see if you have a 'Glass Doctor' franchise in your area.
I've used them several times to repair 'fogged' dual-pane windows in several homes.
They will come out and access your window and see if they can repair it in place or if it would have to removed/replaced to be done right.
Pricing was well under getting a replacement unit.

Found their locator link - http://www.glassdoctor.com/About-Us/AllLocations.html

Re: window water

I think even Glass Dr replaces the glass unit within the window frame, I don't think they have a way to dry out the air pocket and re-seal and reuse the original glass...

Wink Re: window water

At the mountain house - they drilled small holes in the corners, sprayed cleaning/drying agents through the interstitial space, pulled a vacuum (not sure of value) on it and then sealed up the holes ...
Not one unit, of 4, was 'replaced'

Guy came out of Reno to do the work.
