Aluminum Window Condensation Repair



Do You Have Water and Condensation On Your Windows?

Water or frost on the inside of windows is condensation. Condensation forms when warm moist air comes in contact with a cold surface, the same way a cold beverage will "sweat" on a warm day. The inside of your windows "sweat" and drip with condensation because the inside of your home has warm moist air and the window frames and glass are cold from outside temperatures.

"Aluminum Frame Windows are highly susceptible to condensation, weeping, sweating and dripping because they are extremely poor insulators and excellent conductors!"

Condensation on your windows is a sure sign you are losing massive amounts of money through your windows. Cold window surfaces cause drafts, mold, mildew, high heat bills and an uncomfortable room.

Drafts are created by loosely fitting windows and doors, as well as cold glass/frames cooling the air next to the window so that the cooler air sinks to the floor, creating cold feet and cold spots in rooms.
