Cleaning doesn't fix the "fogginess" of my windows.
No matter how hard I clean my windows they always seem to have a “foggy” dirty appearance. What is the problem?

Your foggy apppearance is not a problem of cleanliness. Insulated or double-paned glass is composed of many sealing agents which in time begin to degrade and breakdown. Consequently condensation begins to develop between the panes resulting in a foggy appearance. Contact Quick Glass, your foggy window specialist to repair any foggy window problems you may have.

Condensation aside, what else causes fog within my windows?

Aside from just condensation, are there any other cause for the fog on my windows?

YES. Actually foggy windows result from numerous factors, however most commonly it is a chemical reaction within the insulator around the window. Activated by heat, numerous chemical balls of the insulator emit other chemicals which suffocate the air between the panes, leaving dead space. After about ten years of expanding and contracting, the glass eventually breaks loose from the insulator, resulting in permanent damage to glass. Beginning with the foggy apearance, it then goes to a wet weepy look then finally a powdery substance which will conclusively etch the glass. If repaired immediately, only the glass should need to be replaced. Your foggy window specialists at Quick Glass will gladly provide the best possible resolution to your problem.

Is a complete window replacement my only option for foggy window fixing?

Complete window replacement can be exspensive, is that my ONLY option to correct foggy appearance?

Absolutely NOT! Foggy windows can be cured by simply replacing the glass. Feel free to contact the foggy window specialists at Quick Glass for a free consultation at 817-925-6229.

Once my windows are restored, what can I expect my R-Value to be?

I have heard alot of information regarding the the importance of the R-value of my windows. Once my windows have been restored, what can I typical expect my “R-value” to be?

The R-value or the measure of resistance to heat gain or loss, should normally be at a range of between 3.2 to 4.3. Obviously the greater the number the higher the resistance to heat loss. After replacing the glass of your widndows your R-value should be restored equivelant as if the window unit was brand new.

How much does it cost to have my windows restored vs completely replaced?
In comparison to replacing the window completely, how much does it cost to have my windows restored?

Typically the cost to restore a window is approximately 1/2 to 1/3 of the expense to replace to entire window. Of course the windows size and style also are a factor, however the experts at Quick Glass are glad to offer a free estimate of the cost associated before we ever begin. Please call 817-925-6229 to schedule an appointment at your convenience.

Condensation on the interior of my window panes?

Why is there condensation on the interior views of my windows?

Much like an iced tea glass “sweats” in the heat of the summer, windows are actually the coolest areas of exterior walls. Even though they may have thermal panels, be glazed with sealed insulating glass, Low-E insulating glass, or use triple glazing incorporating three panels of glass they still have a tendency to react to changes in temperature. When the warm room air comes in contact with the glass surface, it is cooled, and if there is enough moisture in the air, the dew point will be reached and the water condensed out.
