Condensation In Glass Panes - 01/30/11 04:26 PM
As a Central New Jersey real estate agent who speciaizes in Somerset County area, I have noticed for some time, condensation stains in multi-pane insulated glass windows. Those annoying foggy stains that are more or less prevalent during different times of the day as the sunlight shines in different positions or angles.

Windows with two or more panes and those with low emissivity coatings depend on the "glass to glass seal" to be in tact to protect the Low-E coatings and any speciality gases within the panes. Failures such as these (4 comments)

As a real estate agent residing in Somerset County New Jersey, one of my favorite fall acitvies is taking a day trip driving through the countryside looking at the wonderful displays of the fall foliage and stopping into the many stores and shops along the way.

The clock had been turned back. The cider mill had been sitting vacant for more that 70 years avoiding the epitath of the bulldozer, and had just opened up for visitors (0 comments)
