Commonly asked questions regarding foggy windows?
What causes foggy windows?
Watch the video for a more detailed description. BUT, in a nutshell, your window has failed and is allowing air in between your two glass panes.
Will the fog go away?
No, once the IGU has a broken seal and has begun to “breathe”, there is no way for the mineral deposits to escape. The fog may be better or worse depending on weather conditions…but the fog will only get worse over time.
How long does it take to fix?
We normally expect a 7-10 business day manufacturing time. There are factors that can slow this process down, but we will discuss with you at the time of ordering. Each IGU is inspected prior to scheduling installation.
How much does it cost to fix?
There are too many variables to really answer this, which is why we like to come out and take a look at your windows. However, units tend to land in the $150 to $250 per IGU range. The more units installed on a single trip, the lower than average drops. Variables include LowE UV coating, Argon gas, Decorative grids, Tempered glass, Obscurity glass, Oversized units, Ladder work or difficult to access installs, etc, etc. You get the point. In order to give you the most accurate pricing, we provide a FREE estimate for you. Call 636-922-3569 to schedule your estimate.
Is it cheaper to replace the whole window?
Most of the time it is more cost effective to fix the broken seal. The follow-up question is how long are you staying in your home? Replacement Windows are an investment in your home, whereas fixing the broken seal is a fix.
Can I replace the IGU myself?
Absolutely. You can call in your IGU sizes and do a self-install. If you’d like us to measure the unit on site but just install it yourself, we charge a $45 measure fee. Either way, if you are comfortable working with glass, we are more than happy to get the IGU for you.
What are my payment options?
Half Down: We accept all Major Credit/Debit Cards, Check or Cash. Easy, secured online payment can be made at https://floydglass.com/payment or call in your payment at 636-922-3569
Can I suck the fog out?
While there are ways to diminish the visible effect of a broken seal, Floyd Glass & Window does not offer them because they do not solve the root issue. One such solution is to drill a hole into the insulated unit and dissolve the mineral deposits with an acidic compound. This may clear the fog, but it has not resealed the unit. It will fog again. The only way to ensure a properly insulated unit is to replace the IGU.
