My house is 29 years old. It needed some attention. I was hesitant to hire someone because I wanted quality work performed. Fortunately, Mark was siding a neighborhood house. The neighbor’s referral and quality work prompted a call to Alamo Exteriors. Alamo Exteriors installed new siding, windows and painted the house. Mark’s team did a professional job bringing the house to better than new condition. Mark personally performed several jobs himself to ensure top notch quality. He also spotted & implemented small ways to improve the weatherability of the house exterior. I felt that my house was being treated like it was his own house. I’m thankful for all the work Alamo Exteriors performed. I would not hesitate to use Alamo Exteriors.
Do you see condensation on your windows at home, especially early in the morning? Now the weather starts to cool down, it is not uncommon to see water on your windows. There are three areas you can experience condensation: at the outside of the window, at the inside of the window, and between the glass panes of double glazing. Let us explain every situation.
Condensation at the outside of a window.
Condensation on the outside of double-glazed windows occurs often with high efficiency windows: due to the great insulation, the inside of this window stays warm and the outside remains cold, and consequently condensation will form at the outside. This condensation is virtually impossible to avoid. However, this is fortunately NOT a problem because it is a sign of good insulation.
Condensation on the inside of the window.
This type of condensation only occurs in a single glazing window. Due to the indoor warmth, moist condenses on the cold glass pane. You can avoid this condensation by ventilating continuously. This temporary solution doesn’t prevent a high energy bill though! A more permanent, money efficient, and energy efficient solution would be to replace the windows with double-glazed windows.
Between the glass panes of double glazing
Condensation can also sit between the glass panes of the double glazing. This is caused by a leak in the glass and is often seen when the temperatures are lower: the temperature of the glass is low and moisture condenses on the cold surface. The only solution for this condensation problem is to replace the double glazing by a professional.

A picture window is stationary and doesn’t not open. It allows for larger size windows. This window is ideal when the homeowner wants to maximize his view to the outside world.
Double-hung and Single-hung Windows
The Double-hung window consists of two operating sash panels. The top panel can be lowered, and the bottom panel can be raised. Both sashes can be locked, removed or tilted. The Single-hung window only has the bottom panel movable. Due to the panels these windows are easy to clean from the inside
A sliding window allows for optimal ventilation when it is opened, and natural light to enter when it is closed. A sliding window has two panels that slide horizontally from side to side. The sash doesn’t open outward making this type of window a great choice for windows near walkways.
A casement window hinges on the side and cranks open to the left or the right. It allows for maximum ventilation and for easy cleaning from inside your home.
An awning window is hinged on the top so the window opens outward. This window allows for air to flow when open and protects against rain or leaves to enter. This window is often used in with large stationary windows.
