Skylight Window Glass
Window glass includes the individual panes in mullioned windows as well as the large glass in picture windows ... and everything in between. Windows can have single panes or, commonly with new, replacement windows, double or triple panes with an air-tight seal between the layers of panes.
A thorough inspector will look at all of the windows he or she has access to, both from the exterior and the interior. The inspector will check to make sure that the glass isn't cracked, that the brackets and glazing around the window panes are intact and that the trim is solid. Deteriorating trim can be an indication of water getting inside the window frame, something that can lead to mold and mildew inside your walls. With newer windows, the inspector will check to see that the seal between the layers of panes is unbroken. Signs of condensation between the panes is an indication of a damaged seal.
