Misted Glass Replacement Reduces Waste

From time to time you’ll find that glass units will have to be changed to an increase of moisture or breakage. A lot of problems are caused by atmospheric conditions exerted on the unit through its lifetime. Sun will cause the air within the unit to expand and with constant expansion and contraction along with weathering will force the seals apart, causing moisture to get sucked in when seals eventually fail. All of our sealed units have a dual seal, which helps prolong the lifetime of the unit, one reason to Choose Decorative Glass & Glazing Co Ltd for replacements.

During winter months the opposite can occur, when units implode, this time the pressure is greater on the outside, condensing the inside causing parts to break. Whether your glass is in a window, door or roof, whether its energy efficient, acoustic, anti-sun or a stained coloured glass, Decorative Glass & Glazing Co Ltd are able to suit your requirements and provide a clean, quick and efficient service.

In trade terms a misted glass is referred to as “broken down” glass. Broken down double glazing units can be caused by premature failure of the perimeter seal, possibly due to a manufacturing fault or else an installation error. The moisture itself is usually difficult to spot initially, until exposed by sunlight or another heat source which draws the moisture upwards as the internal atmospheric pressure changes, eventually condensing into water inside the double glazing unit.

An inspection by a trained glass expert will ascertain if the root cause of the misting problem can be traced to the seal, rather than the glass itself. At times it may be necessary to replace the perimeter seal or frame, while keeping the original frame.
