Condensation on the outside surfaces of your windows is normal and is usually a result of temperature changes. There is only a problem if the mist appears inside the panes or does not dissipate on its own throughout the day.

Not necessarily. If your windows have misted between the glass panes this indicates that your double glazing unit has blown. We can replace your unit, without needing to replace your entire window, saving you time and money!

It is highly recommended that double glazing units are replaced if they have failed.
