Question DetailsAsked on 6/18/2011

Moisture between window panes

My large picture window has moisture between the panes. Is there a repair method for this problem rather than replacement? If so, do any of the listed window contractors do this type of repair work?

I have known of a company that claims to be able to repair a double pane window with seal failure by drilling a hole and somehow cleaning the inside surface of the 2 panes and resealing the hole. In my experience, it was not a satisfactory fix and the best way is to replace the window.

What you want to do is look for a glass company that replaces Thermal Pane glass. They would come out and measure the window size and be able to tell you if the type of window you have can be taken apart to replace the glass. If possible, the will make the thermal pane glass to your window size and come out and install it. Good Luck

Moisture between the panes means the seal has failed. If you had any gas fill inbetween to aid in thermal efficency , that is now gone too. Best bet = replace the whole thing with a new sealed up unit and see if you have any gaurantees from the orig. installation. some mfgs. offer garauntees agaist seal failure and you may be entitled to a free replacement. see ours at WWW.Tri-Pane.com
