What Can Cause Discoloration in Double-Pane Windows?

What makes double-pane windows a step up from traditional ones is their thermal performance? By limiting the amount of heat or cold that transfers into your home from outside, they help keep your living space cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter–but with less energy expenditures. However, some double-pane windows are susceptible to discoloration, which usually indicates an underlying problem. Window World of Boston, a premier window and roofing company, expounds on this issue here.

Moisture Damage is the Primary Culprit

Double-pane windows can become discolored due to moisture damage resulting from excessive indoor humidity. When you check your windows, you may find black or dark-colored streaks along their surface. Should you choose to feel these streaks, you’ll find them dry even if they’re caused by moisture. In some cases, the discoloration along the window’s surface may be white, orange, green or brown mildew and mold, which result from excess indoor moisture, as well.

What You Should Do

To keep a safer and healthier home, you’ll want to deal with your home’s indoor moisture problem first. When overlooked, excessive moisture not only worsens the discoloration of your double-pane windows, but can also lead to wood rot, poor indoor air quality and a rash of health problems. Once you’ve resolved this issue, you should focus on your discolored windows next. Window World of Boston, the leading window and roofing contractor in the area, can help you with this.

High-Quality Window Replacement

While you can just replace the discolored glass and leave the window framing intact, it’s generally a better idea–not to mention safer and more cost-effective–to just have the window replaced altogether. This reduces the potential of damaging the window when the discolored glass is removed. Plus, it offers you a good opportunity to pick more energy-efficient double-pane windows. The options offered by Window World of Boston, for example, come with advanced SolarZone™ Glass Packages. They offer superior thermal performance thanks to their Warm-Edge Spacer System with multilayered vacuum deposition Low-E (low-emissivity) glass and argon gas.
