Fogged up windows?


Do you have trouble seeing out of your windows?  Is there moisture in between the panes of your glass resulting in water built up on the glass surface?  If so, most likely the seal has failed between the panes of glass.  This is a very common issue with double pane windows made with metal spacer systems.


What’s the problem with metal spacers?


When we have large temperature fluctuations your glass and frame expands and contracts.  The metal spacers don’t expand and contract at the same rates or at all.  This results in the glass pulling away from the spacer resulting in seal failure.  When this seal fails, moisture and dirt can get in between the panes of glass ruining your crystal clear view.   We know that most of the time where there is moisture there is mold.  Mold forming on your window spacer is an unhealthy condition in your home.  Another result of the moisture is rust forms on the spacer.  Who wants rusty and moldy windows in your home?
