Forum Title: New Window Issues
We recently had a contractor install a large awning window in our kitchen. Once we cleaned it up, we noticed a scratch in the glass. The contractor ordered a new sash from the manufacturer and installed it with no issues. The problem now is that every morning we can see where condensation has run down the outside of the window requiring the window to be cleaned on a ladder. We did not have this issue with the original sash during the 3 weeks it was installed while we waited for the replacement, nor did we have it with the old double hung window. Could there be an issue with the new sash that is causing a large amount of condensation build-up that leads to it running down the glass every night/morning?

A jamb that is that far gone would need to be replaced if you want it to be like new again. If you just want a cosmetic fix, remove your closer then coat the cracks with bondo. Wipe it into the cracks and scrape off any excess. When it's dry, sand it with an orbital sander then give it a second coat of bondo. When it's dry, sand it again. Prime and paint. Then mark your holes and drill 1 deep pilot holes this time. (5/32) Then use the 3 screws to reattach the closer. And buy a safety chain to put on the storm door. It is what will prevent the door from getting yanked farther than 90 degrees. And by the way, when you put the closer on, there should only be 1/4-3/8 between the edge of the closer bracket and the storm door.

It is a double pane window. There is not moisture between the panes, only on the outside of the window. The seal is good.

Just a guess. Even though double like the previous maybe a different type. Just for info: Residential Windows & Glass Installation Bellevue, Issaquah, Sammamish, Redmond, Woodinville
