WINDOWS DOORS PROBLEMS

Foggy windows

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dual pane windows are likely to trap moisture and cause the glasses to fog. These windows are composed of 2 sheets of glasses and an air locked in between them. If a seal is broken, moisture will come in between the panes and cause the glass to fog.

 

Deteriorated weatherstripping

Weatherstripping is a strip of material used to seal the windows to prevent air leaks. It plays a vital role as it keeps windows insulated and airtight. However, weatherstripping gets deteriorated and when it does, it will make your windows drafty and allow moisture to get trapped.
