I re-finished the bow window in the living room.
This involved sealing the shoddily-mounted outer glass in each of 15 separate window frames. I did this with good quality caulk. What I did not count on was condensation forming. I’ve done a reasonably good job of sealing them, as is evidenced by the fact that the lowest row- most exposed to sunlight for some reason- has spots of fog on them. The fogging is in between the two panes.
I’m unwilling to cut them away, they are clearly airtight from the outside right now. This is what I am considering, tell me if this makes even a smidgen of sense.
Assuming I can get the right bit, I am thinking of drilling a tiny hole- 1/64 inch perhaps- at the very top corner of each of the inside panes. This would release the vapor barrier and allow a tiny bit of air flow inside the panes. Not enough- I’d think- to eliminate the insulation properties, but enough to get rid of condensation. What is now fog will be fugly frost in the wintertime.
Is this a logical thing to do? And, do small glass drill bits even exist? I do have a highspeed Dremel, so going very slowly with little pressure as I drill is do-able.
