    I can see smears in my double glazing from outside. Is this normal, what has caused this and should I complain to my installer

    Thank you

    The cause is carelessness in the manufacturing process. I have this same situation in a couple of windows on my new house. I am going to live with it because I can imagine the mess I will have if one of the builder’s “technicians” gets done tearing the window casing apart to replace the window.

    We had two "blown" windows replaced in the bay window of our front bedroom a few years ago. the internal glazing strips come out quite easily and it's a case of the old units out and the new ones in. Quite a speedy job and there was no mess.
