Misted Glass Replacement Reduces Waste
From time to time, you’ll find that your glass units will have to be changed due to moisture or breakage. A lot of problems are caused by the weather the unit is exposed to through its lifetime.
The heat from the sun will cause the air within the unit to expand. This constant expansion and contraction will force the seals apart, causing moisture to get sucked in when the seals eventually fail. All our sealed units have a dual seal, which helps prolong its lifetime. During winter months, the opposite can occur. When the pressure is greater on the outside, the unit can implode.
Whether your glass is in a window, door or roof, whether its energy efficient, acoustic, anti-sun or a stained glass, Decorative Glass & Glazing Co Ltd can suit your requirements and provide a clean, quick, and efficient service
When Should I Replace My Misted Glass?
The first signs of misting on double glazed units occur when a visible fog patch forms on the inner face of the glass unit. This can go undetected for a while, but when the misting becomes obvious and obstructs your view, it is recommended that the unit be changed.

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, which is sometimes due to a manufacturing fault or an installation error. The moisture can be difficult to spot until exposed by sunlight or another heat source. The heat causes the moisture to build up inside the double glazing unit. An inspection by a trained glass expert will find out if 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.
