Misted Repairs - I can replace your misted up glass units quick, easy, and cost effectively

Can your existing misted up glass Unit be repaired?

There are companies within the industry right now that claim they can repair your existing misted up glass Units by drilling holes into the glass top and bottom thus removing the fog & condensation which has built up within the unit. Once the chemicals have been injected the holes are then sealed with plastic valves. Not only is this very messy, but how can they drill into toughened glass? You can view this procedure on YouTube.

Is this form of repair a permanent solution to the problem?

No as the moisture and condensation between the glass may initially appear to have been removed the seal on the double glazed unit is still broken. This means the cause of the initial failure will still be allowing air and moisture to be sucked into the Double Glazed Unit.

The anti-moisture granules (similar to the silica gel found in new shoe boxes) within the spacer bar of the double glazed unit have already been saturated with moisture and are now useless. While initially this looks like the problem has been solved, in actual fact it’s an expensive temporary fix.

What about the White Marks and Stains left stuck between the panes?

As the moisture leaks in between the panes it will undoubtably leave streaks between the panes. Not only does this leave annoying streaks but the inflow of moisture allows an invisible buildup of bacteria to grow in between the 2 panes.

Replacing the misted up glass Unit Really is The Only Option
