Foggy Window Repair

Are your Dual Pane Windows Hazy, Foggy or condensed?  Condensation accumulates in a window that has a compromised seal. Water Vapors carrying Calcium and other minerals get caught inside the window creating a Fog or haze. 

It is very likely your windows are still under warranty and we urge you look into it further. but in the case it is not, you have few options. Replace with new or Repair at a fraction of the cost.

Curb Appeal  can remove the condensation and fog without removing the window or damaging your property, as we only use professional proprietary equipment along with a three-step defogging procedure to remove the haze from your dual pane thermal windows.

    Professional Foggy Window Repair

    Curb Appeal Power Clean uses industry-leading solutions when removing condensation from dual or triple pane windows. Depending on how long the window seals have been compromised, we will apply the correct process of cleaning.

    In Los Angeles we have a very hot climate, the temperature difference from the morning to noon can be 50 degrees sometimes, that can take a beating on your windows and can cause windows seals to give out and moisture to eventually come in. 

    With our defogging procedure, timing is Key. In some cases, window which have accumulated a large amount of condensation it is a much harder process of removal and we cannot guarantee perfect results. Please get in touch and send us a photo so we can evaluate

    3 Steps to Perfect Fog Free Windows. Drill, Clean & Install Vents

    Here is the 3 step process we take to repairing windows:

    Prevention: How to Prevent Double-Pane Window Condensation?

    Maintenance is the key. We know it may sound biased to say but many of our recurring window cleaning clients rarely have issues with their windows. We believe that maintaining and cleaning your windows rejuvenate the seals and they are less prone to cracking and eventually breaking. Windows that have not been cleaned in long periods of time build up dirt, algae and sand in the tracks and in the frame, those contaminants can clog the drains in the window frame and can cause moisture to stand for long periods of time.  Obviously it is a case by case basis and some have manufacturing defects. 

    Cost To Replace vs Repair Windows in Los Angeles

    Replacing windows, you can expect to pay an average of $300-$700 per window, and it can range from $3,000-$10,000 for a one-story, three-bedroom home with 10 windows. Larger, two-story homes with more windows can possibly run $10,000-$20,000.  (not including any Stucco patching, color match painting, siding repairs, interior molding replacement and any other work that needs to be done)

    VS.

    Repairing Foggy windows we charge a minimum of $250 that includes one average size window. In cases of larger sizes or more quantities we need to get more information and prepare an estimate. The service is considerably quick, we do not remove the window everything is done on site and there is no costly touch ups after. 

    Why Thermal Dual Pane Windows Fail & Condense?

    Dual Pane Windows are normally exposed to high temperatures in our So-Cal Summer months and cold conditions in the Winter, the external temperature has an impact on the double glazing.

    The high Summer temperatures causes the air trapped between the two panes of glass to expand causing the center of the unit to swell like a balloon, as the temperature drops the air contracts and the unit goes into negative deflection causing the glass to contract in the middle.

    This constant expansion and contraction is called solar pumping, the stress this causes on the perimeter seal eventually causes the seal to fail.

    Other causes of Window seal failure are:
    Incorrect fitting
    Poor manufacturing
    Holes in the seals
    Poor transportation
    Poor framework maintenance
    Failed or blocked drainage system

    How Re-engineering Works?

    To remove the condensation from a dual pane window or to prevent the window from fogging, the window needs to basically be re-engineered, the transformation from a hermetically sealed unit to a pressure equalized window is not that difficult.

    We refer to the window as hermetically sealed (Argon gas tight) however, if you are reading this it is likely that you have condensation, fog or haze in your windows, this means the seal has failed and the unit is no longer air tight, we call these windows “Blown” and most people will simply replace the unit with another, the replacement solves the problem of condensation that’s for sure. However it is only a short-term fix and the problem will return when the new units seal fails.

    Re-engineering the failed window solves the problem, it is cheaper than replacing the whole window, last longer than replacements and what’s more is the most environmentally friendly option (most failed windows go straight to landfills).

    The re-engineered windows have the same thermal performance as a standard air-filled windows, air will escape from the unit when the temperature rises and air will be allowed to re-enter the windows when the temperature drops.

    My husband and I used this company for pressure washing the exterior of our home, and all of our exterior windows. We were BEYOND IMPRESSED!! I did a lot of research and got several quotes, and by far this company was the most reasonable when it came to pricing. In addition to that, they were super responsive and professional! Michael Getter was delightful to speak to and work with. You could immediately tell that he is a man that takes pride in his work, and makes customer service his top priority! Our house had many dark spots on the stucco and we were worried that we may need to repaint. They did such an amazing job with the cleaning that we have absolutely no need to paint! Our house practically looks freshly painted! We are so happy and recommend this company highly!

    Very professional and responsive from beginning to end. They were easy to schedule with, provided a detailed estimate, and were happy to work with me when I wanted to add a few services the day before. They arrived right on time and did an amazing job. Our solar panels and windows are sparkling, they cleared out our seriously gross gutters, and even managed to wash dried fruit droppings from our neighbors’ tree off of our back wall and out of our artificial turf. Lovely!
