Frequently Asked Questions
Why do I get condensation on the outside of my windows?
With modern glazing more heat is kept inside, moisture condenses on a cold surface, so external condensation is actually your window doing a good job of keeping the warmth in.
Why do I get condensation on the inside of my windows?
Internal condensation usually occurs in the winter, when the warm moist air comes in to contact with the glass, which is typically colder. The best solution to minimise internal condensation is to increase ventilation. It may be possible to retrospectively fit trickle vents in older windows, which will help reduce condensation.
Why do I get condensation in between the two panes of glass?
Condensation in between two panes is due to the failure of the seal around the window. The only solution to solve this problem in the Scottish climate is to replace the double glazed unit.

Typically an uPVC double glazed unit takes around half an hour to replace.
