Foggy window repair that’s specific to Colorado’s Elevation and Climate
Why thermo-pane glass fails
In Colorado, we have many elements that attack and decrease the life of a double-pane window. Sunshine is the biggest cause of window failure, which is why your south and west facing window usually fail first. Sunshine causes a process know as “Solar Pumping” which makes the glass contract and expand breaking the seal. Sunshine also causes hardening of the sealant and makes the glass fail (UV exposure) closer to sun!
Your glass is not made at this elevation, most thermo-pane glass comes from out of state (lower elevation) so there is consent expansion on the seals from the second it is trucked into Colorado. It’s like taking a bag of potato chips over Vail pass they sometimes pop. In addition: Warm days and cold nights will cause contraction and expansion, wet days, dry days, water can lay near the seal and cause failure. Improper installation (proper installation is a must for insulated glass to last).
