Why Are My Windows Foggy? Information for Homeowners

Foggy windows can be a source of frustration for many homeowners. Foggy windows prevent people from being able to see outside properly, and they can even block some sunlight from entering the home.

Sometimes, foggy windows happen because the windows themselves are broken. Other times, foggy windows occur because of conditions inside the house. Knowing what to do about your foggy windows and what you can do to prevent them in the future can help you take care of your house. 

What Causes Windows to Become Foggy?

7 Common Causes Of Cracked Car Windows

When you think about automotive glass repairs, you likely picture starburst cracks from foul balls or deep rock chips on a windshield. However, side windows are just as vulnerable to nicks, cracks, and complete blowouts as windshields.

Automotive glass is designed to withstand the normal rigors of driving, but damaged car glass poses a safety hazard by reducing visibility and even creating a risk of injury. Side glass in particular shatters into smaller and sharper pieces than the rounded particles of broken windshield glass.

Understanding why side windows break can help you safeguard your car from this potential issue. In this blog, we discuss seven of the most common causes of car window damage.

Custom Designs for Bathroom Mirrors

When you renovate your bathroom, the finishing touches make all the difference to your overall design. You can make the most of your new space by installing custom mirrors to make the room look exactly how you want it.

Mirrors in bathroom provide more than just function. They affect lighting and space perception, and, if you choose the right design, they can even be used for storage. Learn about some interesting custom mirror designs you can try in your bathroom.

Mirrored Cabinetry

A timeless design that can bring extra storage to your bathroom is shallow cabinets with mirrors set into the doors. This is an excellent solution for a bathroom that has a small footprint which doesn’t allow for other storage options, such as a large cabinet or sink vanity.

Drafty, Leaking Windows: What Causes Indoor Comfort Problems?

One of the major factors that affects the overall comfort level in your home is your windows. When windows are tight-fitting and well-maintained, they have little if any effect on interior temperature changes and comfort levels.

However, poor window quality can mean interior drafts, room temperature fluctuations, high energy bills, and even hot and cold spots inside the same room. Many people struggle with drafts in the house, even if their windows are newer.

Here are the main reasons why windows might be causing drafts or discomfort in your home and what you can do about it.

5 Ways to Be Good to Your RV’s Windshield and Windows

You need a professional to install your RV windshield when it cracks, gets pelted by rocks, or otherwise needs replacement. However, you can perform your own routine maintenance on your RV windshield and windows to keep them in top shape. Here are five RV-window maintenance tips.

  1. Check Seals Around Windows

Before and after every trip, check the seals and gaskets around all of your windows. Rodents, old age, and flying debris wear away window seals and gaskets. Gaps form at the broken places in the seals and allow rainwater, insects, and rodents into your RV.

What Our Clients Say

Hidden Gem

I had 2 windshields replaced on my previous car at a different glass company. I went back there and got an estimate for this windshield but thought I would get a second estimate from Central Glass. I am sure glad as it saved me over $140. This is now my glass company of choice.
