Window Condensation, Part 2: How to Prevent It

High humidity levels can cause poor indoor comfort and condensation on your windows. This issue can lead to premature damage, like rot to the sash and frame. To lessen maintenance costs and maintain a cozy indoor environment, Renewal by Andersen® recommends that you invest in our window replacement in Katy, TX.

Window Condensation

Smart Use of Materials

Our windows prevent condensation through smart use of materials. With our High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass, you can have clear windows all year long. It comes with a special metallic coating that detects radiant heat. It also restricts heat flow throughout the glass. This way, the interior surface of the glass stays warm and does not accummulate, preventing condensation. This glass package also offers 35% efficiency during warmer months for greater savings.

We also use Fibrex® frames for all our windows, including casement windows in Katy, TX. This composite material will not crack, corrode, pit, or rot even after years of elements exposure. This has the low-maintenance feature of vinyl and the strength of wood. You can also expect more energy savings because Fibrex has high insulating levels on par with wood.

Through these materials, our windows can maintain a consistent indoor temperature. This prevents quick drops of temperature that create cold glass surfaces where condensation forms.

Other Benefits of Our Windows

Aside from reducing condensation, our windows can also prevent drafts inside your home. We make this happen through proper window installation in Katy, Texas. We make sure your windows fit the opening tightly by conducting pre-installation measurements. On the installation day, we will fill in any gaps around the frame using insulation foam, which we cover with matching trim.

We are committed to giving you the best home, which is why we back our services and products with strong warranties. This way, you can rest assured that your windows will perform their best for years. We offer 20-year coverage for Fibrex and glass, 10-year coverage on sash and locking mechanism, and 2-year coverage for installation.
