To replace or not to replace? That is the tough question we ask ourselves when we’re faced with home repairs especially if they are larger maintenance items like windows. One reason that typically results in window replacement is seal failure. When the window seals break down it creates a problem in energy efficiency and moisture resistance.
“What exactly is the seal?” you may be asking yourself. Today’s windows are made of two and three panes instead of just one like in the old days. An inert gas like argon is pumped between the panes and then sealed so that the glass and insulating gas stay in place offering energy efficiency. If the seal breaks down, many things happen causing the window to lose its efficiency and moisture resistance.
