Window Fog

June 16, 2024
Window Fog

Interviewer: I’m here with Brandon from Showroom Windows and Doors, and today we’re talking about window fog. Right? We’ve all seen it. You may have experienced it if you have an older home. You’ve got these windows they’re supposed to be efficient they’re double pane but then they get the fog in-between. Where does that come from?

Brandon: Foggy windows are usually the number one reason people even call to replace their windows. It’s due to seal failure, depending on the type of frame we’ll determine why it happen. Old aluminum windows will get really hot and it melts the seal. Plastic vinyl windows expand and contract at such a high rate due to heat that it’ll break the seal. So, it really depends on the type of window.

Interviewer: Is it because they’re cheap windows or just old?

Brandon: Both, you know. Usually, cheap windows will fail faster. We were in a home yesterday, it was only a few years old and 30% of the house had seal failure.

Interviewer: So how do you avoid that fog?

Brandon: Quality Windows, you know, depending on the type of window frame you choose, will determine how long that window is actually going to last.

Interviewer: What are you offering at Showroom to make sure that doesn’t happen to people?

Brandon: For seal failure, fiberglass would be your best bet. Fiberglass and glass are about the same materials made with the same product, so they actually expand and contract at similar rates.

Interviewer: Alright, so the way to avoid window fog? Just call Showroom Windows and Doors!

  • Showroom windows did such a great job. Brandon worked with me to get exactly what I was wanting. His crew installing the windows also did a great job. I‘m now using Showroom Windows to do the rest of our house. I will definitely recommend Showroom Windows and Doors to anyone!

    – Dororthy G.
  • I met with a variety of window installers, like Pella, Andersen, and performance remodel or something. I looked for a “local” option and found Showroom. What made me move forward with Showroom was the ability to get a mix of windows from Pella and Marvin. I wasn’t limited to just one brand.

    – Steph N.

  • I replaced 16 windows & frames. I must say that I was very impress by the professionalism, the work ethic, cleanliness and transparency during the whole process. Todd and Tim are very experienced individual and can be trusted to get the job done no matter what. They show up early and leave late. An awesome experience overall.

  • We had been waiting on this project for years because we just didn’t know what to do. Brandon came over and together, we came up with a beautiful and functional solution. The end product is perfect and we love it. We will be giving them another call when we replace our windows because they were so great.

    – Lindsay T.
  • Really great experience! Luke and Trina ran the install of our new front door and patio door and the results look amazing. They took time to cover the little details that others miss. They also cleaned as they went, I’m used to having to clean up when others leave the job site!

    – Dan J.
