Glass Clear and Flat: It is important to check your glass before any rendering, plastering or other works adjacent to the glass takes place and as early as reasonably practical. Standing 2 meters away (3mtrs for toughened, laminated and coated glass) or as far as you can if 2 meters is not possible, look directly through the glass not at it in natural light but not direct sunlight with no visible moisture on the surface of the glass at a 90° Angle to the window. It is acceptable to see bubbles/ blisters, fine scratches not more than 25mm long or minute particles providing they are neither obtrusive nor bunched; smears, finger prints, material, dirt are not acceptable.
Toughened glass due to the process of toughening may show some visual distortions this will not affect the window performance and Laminated glass is made up of several layers so may have a few more blemished than clear flat glass. Low emissivity coating can in some conditions look like the glass is hazed or cloudy this is normal. Patterned glass is manufactured differently so the above does not apply.
Internal condensation is caused due to high humidity levels with in the house this is caused by breathing, cooking, washing up, bathrooms, laundry, wet outdoor clothing, heaters, indoor plants and the drying out period of a new build.
External condensation this is caused by the glass being energy efficient and keeping the heat in with the outer pane being colder than the dew point outside it will dissipate quickly as the temperature rises.
Condensation in between the two panes of glass means that the seal around the double glazed unit has failed and needs to be replaced.
