Misted Double Glazing Repairs Glasgow

Although double glazing is an excellent way to keep your home secure and to save on your energy bills, over time, the windows can begin to deteriorate – this is why knowing where to go for replacement double glazed sealed units Glasgow is a good idea. Misting is a big problem and is perhaps the number one reason for needing double glazing repairs Glasgow south.

Misted double glazing occurs when moisture is able to get between the two panes of glass due to a problem with the seal. As the moisture dries, it leaves a misted look behind. Not only is this unsightly, but it will also reduce the lifespan of the unit. Plus, if there is moisture, mould can easily follow, and you might find that the mould creeps from the double glazing to the rest of your house, or at the very least the room the window is in.

We Can Repair Your Misted Double Glazing In Glasgow

Although in some cases, misted double glazing will need to be entirely replaced, most of the time, specialist repairs can take place. This will save you money and rejuvenate the panes.

Misted double glazing repairs Glasgow should only be carried out by experts, such as those at Selecta Glasgow. At Selecta Glasgow, we are experts in providing repairs for misted double glazing in the Glasgow area, and we have a lot of experience in doing precisely that.

What our customers say

Owen McGee

I had 4 windows replaced by Harry and his team at Selecta. Harry was a pleasure to deal with, very friendly, knowledgeable and flexible with doing the initial survey and provided a very quick quote for the work. Just over a week from placing the order, the windows were installed to a very high standard. Harry's team even repaired one of my existing windows, which had issues with draughts for a long time. This saved me having to get it replaced, which saved me money. Very happy with the service I have received and would happily recommend Selecta to anyone looking for new windows.

Adrian Georgescu (Adi)

The guys from Selecta replaced our windows in our flat and they did a perfect job. Fist we have been visited by Harry, who did all the measurements and gave us all the advices we needed regarding the new windows. He was very professional and friendly, and the same evening sent us the quote. Payed the invoice and then he contacted us when the order was ready. Next day, two men came and installed the windows, they were friendly, funny and efficient. At the end they cleaned the rooms and everything was just perfect.


Yasmin Murdoch

Couldn't be happier with the job done by Harry and his team with my new windows. I was kept informed from start to finish by Harry who was happy to answer any question i had and the whole process took just 3 weeks! What more could you ask for?!
John and Gordon were brilliant, incredibly efficient and the tidiest workers i have ever seen! You wouldn't have even known they were here! Have to mention the job they done rebuilding the timber sills in one of my rooms where the old ones had been rotting away... Absolutely fantastic! Brings a whole new lease of life to a very dull room!


Sara Fernández

Just had our windows fitted yesterday and couldn't be happier with the whole process. Harry came twice to the flat to take measurements and go over some details. He explained us everything. Two weeks later and the windows were being fitted. Scott and Grant were brilliant, so fast, clean and nice. They've done such an amazing job. I'd 100% recommend this company to anyone.
