Here at Misty Glaze, we’re confident that our technique is by far the most successful and cost effective on the market. We compare other options to the Misty Glaze technique
vs. Hole drilling technique
Review: Two small holes are drilled into the corner of the glass unit. Dry air is pumped into one hole and pumped back out via the second hole to remove moisture from between the panes. This drilling technique is a temporary repair. You are also restricted to standard glass, as toughened safety glass cannot be repaired using this technique. On most cases the Hole drilling technique is unlikely to remove stains or white marks completely. Making it impossible to restore crystal clear vision.
Costing: The average cost of de-misting a glass unit costs between £50 and £70. Do-it-yourself kits can be purchased online
vs. Brand new windows
Review: Replacing older windows with new double glazed units is the best solution to return a window to perfect clarity. New window technology and advanced security features from brand new windows can improve both energy costs and increase security. New windows also allow you to change the style, colour, and material to improve your home and help increase your homes overall value. The only downside to this solution is the costing.
Costing: The average cost of changing the window units on a 3 bedroom semi detached home (front & back) is the cost (£3,000 to £5,000). For most, this is a costly and drastic procedure. If you’re only looking to replace or repair one window frame/glass pane. If replacing one window, there are many problems you may encounter. Older model windows are very difficult to match and general wear-and-tear/weathering would make a single window look out of place on your home.
