Advice & Facts – Common door, window & glazing faults:

Why do I get Condensation on my windows?

Water seen on the inner face of the glass or window frame is generally due to the cold window or glass face meeting warm internal air.

This effect can be reduced by the following:

  1. Ensuring a good air flow by venting the room regularly – trickle vents fitted to the window will help encourage air flow.
  2. Replace the glazing for an A-Rated double-glazed unit. This is a soft coating to the inner glass pane that forms a partial barrier between the two temperatures, thus reducing condensation.
    My window has Cloudy Glass:

    Cloudy glass is Moisture seen within the double or triple glazed window.

    This is usually caused by the vacuum seal has broken down and the unit needs replacing. Give us a call to get this fixed hassle free.

    We will carry out additional checks and clear the drainage slots once the glass is removed.

    Unfortunately double glazed glass cannot be repaired, only replaced, but we can do this at a very good price for you.

    Door & Window Draughty or stiff handle operation

    Draughty or stiff handle operation is more often due to the opening sash being out of alignment to the outer frame.

    If any part of the door and window has failed this can easily be replaced, usually for a modern equivalent.
