Double Glazing Marks
 
1 Attachment(s)
Hi there

I moved into a new house, and most of the front bay windows are double glazed and have neat vertical marks on them, as per the photo attached. they almost look like blind marks but they're going the wrong way.

I have tried cleaning them but it looks like they are on the inside. Does anyone know what this is (condensation?)?

Does this mean that I need to replace the glazing?

If anyone can advise it would be much appreciated.

Post some pictures closer to the windows.

They do have vertical blinds but I don't think it has anything to do with the glass.
You also have swirl marks at the bottom of the window.I t might be a combination of uncleaned glass before the glazing was sealed and/or a failed seal.
Do you see any water droplets or just the fog?
Do you know the window manufacturer? The failed glazing might be covered, you just need to find out who made it to access the warranty details.

I've tried to get a closer shot attached but this is a pretty fair representation of the problem.
Its just fog, theres no droplets or condensation. If it is due to poor cleaning, Im just surprised at the uniform nature of it...?
I dont know the manufacturer, we've just moved in and strangely the previous owner hasn't returned my calls on the subject!

Can you advise what the next step would be - replace whole window glass and frame, or just the glass panel? Hoping there's a cheaper option than replacing all the windows

Thks

You should be able to replace the glazing panel. Contact local glaziers for panel options. You might be able to upgrade to a more efficient panel.

Will do. Have you ever seen anything like it? Any idea what it could be?
