    Fixing Windows that have condensation inside

    Window Specialists

    I've just noticed that 4 of the double glazed windows in my mums bungalow have condensation inside. They arent that old and appear to be in good condition apart from the condensation. Is there anything that can be done to remove it or do the windows need to be replaced?

    "There are companies out there that can clean misted up sealed units, personally, a new unit is the only way to sort the problem, if you ask for a guarantee on the unit you are covered for a while at least, if the window itself isn't old that should be guaranteed anyway"

    "Hi, there is no reason to replace the whole window it is quite easy and more cost-effective to replace the glass units only. You could even upgrade the efficiency by putting an A or A+ rated units into the frame"

    "The glass units have blown which means the seal around the glass has failed just replacing the unit's should resolve the issue but if the windows have been manufactured without any drainage built-in they could blow again"

    "You don’t need to change the windows, but we can take the glass out and replace the glass units, and put into the current frames. Unfortunately, the glass can not be fixed.
    Average cost depending on the size of glass unit should be around £70-80 a unit supplied and fitted"

    "You will have to get an expert to examine the offending units. Without looking at them I would suggest that as the units have failed they would need to be replaced. The seals will also need to be inspected to see if they have perished."

    "The windows don't need replacing, only the glass. This is quite a quick and easy job to do and is much cheaper than replacing the whole frame"

    "The seal around the edges of the glass units have failed meaning the glass units need replacing. Not the full windows"

    "Hello there hope your safe and well.
    First of all check the contract, if you have this, it should be covered in your guarantee.
    If you have no paper work unfortunately the only way to solve is replace double glazed units.
    Hope this advice is good for you.
    Many thanks Andy"

    "Unfortunately the only way to fix this is by replacing the glass unit's. The best option is contact whoever supplied the glass as most places give 5-10 year warranty on glass. Failing that you would need to pay for new glass"

    "You will not need to change the whole window just the glass. But if they are not that old they should be under the guarantee still and the company that supplied them should change them free of charge. However if this is not an option then please look me up and I will be able to help.

    "The units have had their life span so a replacement would be required on each section.

    Size would determine cost, fitting is standard."

    "The answer is yes, you will need to replace the double glazing glass as the windows have blown. When ordering the glass, make sure you get the correct thickness of spacer bar."

    "Hi,
    You can't remove the condensation between the two double glazed glass panels.
    The only option is to replace the double glazed units. You should be able to keep the window frames and replace the double glazed glass only.

    Thanks"

    "If the condensation is between the two panes of Glass this can't be removed and it's a blown window. New double glazed windows will be required, the frames will not need replacing, only the glass.

    "You just need to replace the glass. The windows themselves won't need changing. Any window fitter should be able to change the glass for you and should only need about half an hour and it will be a fraction of the cost of new windows."
