The cost to restore a window is typically 1/2 to 1/3 the cost of replacement. Window size and style will have a bearing on the cost.
The presence of fog or condensation is a function of the amount of water vapor in the window system and temperature fluctuations. Our Window Medics process will solve this problem.
Our 20-year warranty is supported by the Window Medics process, which re-engineers your window system by installing a mirco-valve. It allows moisture to be expelled while keeping new moisture out of the window system. However, if moisture cannot be expelled from a treated window system, we will re-service the site or refund your account.
Yes we can fix your windows. We do work on low and high-rise commercial buildings from the inside. Our process allows us to drill both panes of glass (interior and exterior) and vent the window.
Generally, the ‘R’ in a standard thermal pane is in a range of 3.2 to 4.3. A window that has water vapor in the interior air space (even if condensation has yet to appear) is full of wet air. Our process replaces the wet air with dry air. Dry air is a better insulator than wet air, which restores R- value close to that of a new unit.
The small access holes and vents used in our window restoration process are practically invisible. They are discreetly positioned in corners, outside of the main window viewing area. Most upper vent holes are usually covered by blinds or drapes. The lower vent hole can only be seen from an oblique angle and is not very obvious.
We can restore most of the R-value to a window originally filled with argon gas. The argon, in all probability, has been released from a window before condensation begins to form. The best we can do is restore most of the original R-value just slightly less than an argon-filled window. The Window Medics Solution will have more R-Value than a window filled with wet air.
2-3 weeks is typical. There is no exact answer to how long it takes for a window to clear. There are three main variables; window size, it’s orientation to the sun and the amount of moisture in the window system. If desiccant moisture absorbing materials are still wet, a window may continue to produce some fog until these desiccant moisture absorbing materials dry out.
No, it does not work on tempered glass. However sometimes, we can use other techniques that will allow the window Medics process to work.
Window cleaning will not affect a restored window; however always exercise caution when cleaning around window valves and seals. Avoid putting harsh chemicals directly on the micro-valves installed as part of the Window Medics Solution.
Window Medics Professionals must wash, rinse and use a drying agent in order to fully restore your windows. We have special tools and techniques that allow us to scrub your thermal window panes from the inside. We can remove most streaks, dirt and debris that form in between thermal window panes. If windows are in an early failure stage, with moisture and streaking caused by condensation running down the window; it can be removed.
Your Window Medics professional needs to inspect a streaking window before confirming all the streaking can be removed. It can be difficult to assess what can be removed without an On-Site Inspection. If windows are in an early failure stage, with moisture and streaking caused by condensation running down the window; it can be removed.
If our restoration service is done properly on a restorable window, streaking will not be an issue. Once the moisture has been removed from the window, streaking can occur as moisture in the window reacts with our drying agents. In some cases, the streaking is caused by mineral deposits in the moisture, which precipitate as it condenses and evaporates. Our process is designed to remove most, if not all of the debris that has accumulated prior to the glass getting damaged. The process is guaranteed to remove all moisture inside of a window.
