Do you think your window seal has failed, but aren’t sure? The most surefire way to know that your window has experienced seal failure is if you see condensation in between the panes of glass. If you have double or triple pane windows, window seals are generally very reliable, but pressure washing, scraping, or sanding your windows, or even just time itself, can cause window seals to fail.

When this happens, what should you do and how should you fix it?

Have you ever wondered why condensation forms on your windows and what you can do to prevent this from happening?


Window condensation occurs through a combination of the moisture in the air and the temperature. Often, window condensation is nothing to be concerned about, as it occurs naturally when extreme temperature differences exist between the interior and exterior of your home or if the air outside the home is very moist. Glass is a water barrier, so when humid or extreme weather conditions exist, window condensation naturally occurs.

The most important step of window replacement—believe it or not—happens before the windows are ever installed. It happens before they are ever even purchased. What is it?


The day the window measurements are taken. Getting an accurate measurement is extremely important as it ensures a snug fit and an easier installation. If your measurements are off, it will require additional labor as modifications must be made to accommodate the window that has either been sized too small or too large.

Replacing the homes in your window is a major investment, so it is important that you make the right decision when you choose a company to install those windows. Do you go with a large national manufacturer or the little local guy? There are pros and cons to both that must be considered.
