Replacing windows

Hi, I have a good amount of windows in my house that are getting condesation inbetween the two panels of windows and I was hoping if you could inform me anyplace online that will either custom make or sell me windows like this. One of them is 16"*32"*5/8" Thermopanes. Thank you

You would be better off contacting a window or glass operation that specializes in replacement windows. That way, they can measure accurately, give you what you need, and you can install them. They are super simple to install, and we can walk you through it, so get someone knowledgeable in this area to measure first. The reason for this is, what if you mismeasure, and spend $200 on a window you can't use?

What do you mean by mismeasure. Don't you just measure the frame subtrate 1/8" from both sides, tell them the dimensions and this is where they will ask you what quality you want and you can go through the pros and cons of each type etc. So then have them cut it. Take old one out put knew one in then silicone all around the edge and place in the trim. Sound good.

Sorry it took me a while to get back

What I am saying about a DIY'er measuring windows, you can do it, but if you miss one number, transpose any figures, leave out a fraction, you will eat that window. If you have the people who will supply the windows measure them, they stand a better chance of fitting and if there is a problem with fit, they eat it. Most window suppliers will be glad to measure your openings for you if you intend to buy your windows from them.
