It happens to us all at some point, whether we rent or own a home. Problematic windows are an eyesore and will get worse over time if they’re not dealt with promptly.

We’ll do what we can to repair your window and, if it’s not possible, we’ll work with you on a complete replacement that fits your schedule and budget.
Not All Problematic Windows Require Replacement
The two most common window problems that homeowners face are foggy windows and cracked glass. Both are problematic and will only lead to more trouble down the road if not dealt with. With these kinds of issues, you should consult with a professional window repair company—that’s where we come in. Ardmor is an expert in glass repair in Philadelphia, we’ll take a look at your problematic window and give you a tailored strategy for repair or replacement. If we can repair it, we’ll make sure you know that’s an option.
What is a Foggy Window?
A foggy window is just that—a window that is rendered almost completely opaque due to trapped condensation. But what causes this problem? Most windows in our homes are double panned. That means that a pocket of air is sandwiched between two panes of glass, created an insulating wall of air between the outside and the inside of your home. When the seal on your window fails, this will bring with it moisture, which produces fog and condensation. Often, the condensation trapped inside your window is so thick that you can’t even see out of it. This poses practical problems for obvious reasons. Beyond that, it means you have a window in disrepair that’ll only get worse.
This type of problem can be repaired by replacing the glass, the seal, or the entire window, depending on the source of the damage. In many cases, the rubber seal is dry rotted from the sun and is no longer creating an airtight seal. In other cases, the window frame itself is made of wood, and due to decades of moisture, has begun to rot and warp, breaking the airtight seal it once had. Whatever the problem, the window professionals at Ardmor will identify the source of your problem and leave you with a working window.
Can You Live with a Cracked Window?
A cracked window isn’t just unsightly—it’s not doing its job of insulating your home from the outside elements. Beyond that, cracks will only get worse as the seasons change and the temperatures fluctuate. The last thing you want is for a crack to turn into a shattered window—at that point, it’s not just an expensive fix, it’s a danger to you and your family.
