Misted Glass

Misted or Foggy Glass

A lot of homes are now fitted with double glazing & we receive many enquiries about misted glass and double glazing. Double glazed windows will need maintaining due to old age or damage caused to them and this is why we are here to help you.

No one likes to see that they have problems with misted up glass. Its spoils the view, lets in less light and just looks untidy. There are many factors that contribute to the misting up of double glazed sealed units. One of these factors can be temperature conditions. If a double glazed sealed unit is fitted somewhere that it is exposed to hot and cold temperatures all of the time, then in theory this can shorten the lifespan of the materials used to seal it (expansion and contraction of materials).

Also another contributing factor can be the UPVC window frames that the double glazed units are fitted within. For example, if the frames allow rain to penetrate below the beading (poorly fitted beading or worn gasket rubber), than the double glazed unit may be sitting in water which can make the double glazed unit less effective and shorten the life of materials that seal it.

Also, poor construction of the double glazed sealed unit may also be a contributing factor. And mainly, the reason for most double glazed units is simply old age. However don't worry, misted up glass is not an expensive problem to rectify.
