Failed, Misted Units and Repairs

Misting occurs when the seals in a glazed unit begin to degrade and can no longer protect the interior of the unit from moisture, dust and general grime. In a brand-new glazed unit, the seal is impenetrable and provides flawless protection for the gap between the panes. When this protection is compromised, it is only a matter of time before problems begin to present themselves.

An Inevitable Outcome

Even if you buy the best, nothing lasts forever. Sooner or later, though hopefully later, double and triple-glazed units lose their luster and show signs of misting. Some show signs of age quicker than others and the extent of the damage will always vary considerably. But what’s important to remember is that even when a glazed unit has failed entirely, it may still be possible to have it repaired. And as is the case with most things, repairing failed or misted glass units usually works out much more cost-effective than replacing the entire window.

Here at All Glass and Glazing, we specialise in affordable, reliable and consistently high-quality window repairs. Just let us know where you are, what you need and when you need us to be there. Along with our comprehensive repair and replacement services, we can also take care of temporarily boarding up windows and doors while the new glass is being fitted. We aim to make the entire process as quick and easy as possible, all backed by our guaranteed low prices.

Repair or Replace Failed Glazing Units in?

It’s important to remember that along with looking unsightly, a failed glass unit could also be having a marked effect on your home’s insulation. This is especially true in the case of larger windows, or instances where a number of windows have begun misting at the same time. Misted and failed windows are unable to offer the same kinds of insulating properties as properly sealed windows, which in turn makes for more heat loss and higher energy bills as a result.

Without experience and expertise, you might not be able to work out whether the unit requires repairing or replacing. That’s why we’re happy to offer free surveys with no obligation to go ahead with any of our services. If it’s possible to go ahead and repair the unit, that’s exactly what we’ll do. If replacement products are needed, we’ll guide you through the options available and help you make the right decision.
