A Cost Effective Alternative to Replacing Your Windows
How defogging your windows can make them look like new for a fraction of the cost.
Discovering moisture or fogging in your windows can be stressful for homeowners who believe they now must start budgeting for replacement windows that can prove costly.
“We hear from many people who believe the ‘seal’ is broken and they now have to replace the windows, but that is a misconception,” says Carol Emerson, owner/operator of All About Windows Defogging in Calgary. “And, we need to put the message out to clear up this misconception and educate people on defogging.”
Rather than replacing windows that have moisture in them, Emerson says homeowners should consider the option of defogging. “You could potentially save 50 to 70 percent of the cost of replacement, which, especially in this economy, is big savings to homeowners.
“But, you also save time as we can defog an average window in a half-hour to an hour, and it’s not intrusive since the majority of our work is done on the outside of the window,” she reports. “Plus, defogging reduces landfill waste.”
“All windows have the potential to become wet, and often homeowners find they’re replacing the same window over the years due to this problem,” Emerson says. “But the defogging process removes the moisture permanently so homeowners never have to worry about a “failed seal” or moisture in that window again and we provide a transferable lifetime warranty.”
It’s also important to get the defogging done as soon as you recognize there is a problem, she says, “as the sooner the window is defogged, the less time it will take to dry and the clearer it will be.”
