Why Do I Need To replace My uPVC Windows?

As the colder months draw upon us we start to keep our windows closed and turn up the heating! We start to notice draughts around the windows, we find ourselves turning the heating up higher and leaving it on for longer periods. Misty windows and broken window units are often the cause of high energy bills and draughty rooms.

Misted Glass Repair

If your double glazed windows are misting mist up, especially on cold, damp days, then it is very likely that the seals around the glass unit have failed. This allows water or condensation to penetrate between the two panes of glass.  There is often one or several reasons why this occurs over time. It could be that the original units were not manufactured accurately, the units were installed incorrectly and  the rubber gaskets around the edges of the glass unit have shrunk allowing the penetration of water.

When Bromsgrove base Clearsafe install and repair double glazed glass units caused by misting up we will survey the existing installation.  We will find the root cause of the initial problem and take steps to ensure that this doesn’t happen again. We will take care to ensure that the new window units are not blocking drainage holes, glass units are sitting on glass packers so that even if a drainage hole does become blocked the unit is not sitting in standing water. If necessary we will also change the rubber glazing gaskets.
