As businesses start to slow re-open, we at All Glass and Glazing want to reassure you that should you require any emergency glazing or our boarding up service, that we are now fully operational.
When the glass unit mists up, this means that the seal has failed and is allowing moisture inside the glass unit. Unfortunately you can’t just wipe this away as the moisture is inside the unit and can’t be accessed.

Misting occurs when the seals in a glazed unit begin to degrade and can no longer protect the interior of the unit from moisture, dust and general grime. In a brand-new glazed unit, the seal is impenetrable and provides flawless protection for the gap between the panes. When this protection is compromised, it is only a matter of time before problems begin to present themselves.
As an alternative to the standard kind of glass used in most domestic windows and doors, safety glass is designed to be significantly stronger and safer. Along with being considerably less likely to break in the first place, toughened glass is designed to reduce the likelihood of injury occurring in any instance where the glass breaks. In any environments or locations where the likelihood of physical harm or injury occurring as result of failed glass installations is higher, experts exclusively recommend the use of safety glass as standard.
Every property of every size, type, age and specification loses heat through its windows. In fact, a property’s windows are almost always the number-source of heat loss, which can have a detrimental effect on both energy use and heating costs. And while there’s a lot that can be done to help by way of heavier curtains, storm-strips and so on, you cannot expect to run an efficient home if you do not have fully-efficient windows.
Contrary to popular belief, even the best double-glazed windows and doors aren’t designed to last forever. There simply isn’t the kind of technology available right now to produce affordable home windows and doors that are genuinely infallible. Of course, invest in quality products and you’ll get at least a decade or two out of them, but given the punishment inflicted by the Great British elements, you can’t expect them to last forever!
It’s the million-dollar question every glazing company in the UK is asked day in and day out – is triple glazing really worth the money? It’s been around for some time and plenty of people swear by it, but is it really necessary to make the upgrade to triple glazing if you haven’t already?
Bring the question to any responsible glass suppliers and manufacturers in Stockport and they should all give you the same answer – it depends on the circumstances. There are certain instances in which triple glazing could make a big difference, though in others it may be advisable to stick with what you already have.
